Video of the incident, which the Legion did not directly claim responsibility for, shows several balloons raising a blue-and-white striped flag above the university’s main building.
The flag of the “Freedom of Russia Legion” formed by Russians fighting for \uD83C\uDDFA\uD83C\uDDE6 against Russia is already flying in Moscow!
The white-blue-white flag is used by opponents of Putin’s regime and will replace the current \uD83C\uDDF7\uD83C\uDDFA flag once Putin falls.

“Thank you for supporting us and waiting for us!” The Freedom Legion for Russia said in a telegram caption. “‘This’ [Legiunea] To Russia! For freedom!”
Other videos released by the Freedom Legion for Russia show another anti-Russian flag being flown by blue and white balloons in various parts of Moscow.
