A growing number of city officials in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Kolpino are demanding the resignation of Russian President Vladimir Putin via a petition on Twitter. The demand comes after reports of a Ukrainian counterattack which has caused Russian forces to retreat from previously held territory. Domestic opposition to Putin has been gaining strength as the war with Ukraine drags on and more recently with the success of Ukraine on the battlefield.
