While it is silent here majority of Russian speaking users of LiveJournal reacted to this news. 99% negatiely. Moreover they even have gone so far to get togather at the same place to iterfere.Last time they gave "soaps" to Vanyan. I wonder if they can give anything to Black Gago in May.

International Women’s Day in Armenia: small women’s march, riot police van, private burial of “Red Apple”, business as usual

BSW, they won't have enough guts to do so. They only put 'brave faces' in front of women or other people who despise violence and hate. Unless it is absolutely necessary, I tend to ignore them.
