  • Description

    For the past week, protests have been going on in the Soviet Union against United States action in Vietnam. Moscow joined in with a massive demonstration on Wednesday.

    Various rallies were held in and around Moscow, each attended by up to 40,000 people, according to Moscow reports. The theme was "Hands off Vietnam."
    More than 100 petitions have been handed in to the U.S. Embassy, where police guards were doubled, but there were no incidents.

    Coinciding with the protests was a statement by Mr. Alexei Kosygin, the Soviet Prime Minister, accusing the Americans of whipping up a military psychosis in the world. He also condemned the U.S. war effort in Vietnam. In reply, Washington accused him of extreme distortions and one-sided opinions. The State Department expressed regret over the tone of his remarks.
