Let's first look at how it used to be back in the Soviet times...

It's still a popular event today, but many say at least part of the participants are out for a march only because the trade unions, or the parties their businesses are affiliated with want them to be there.

Here's a like courtesy of RIA-Novosti news agency.

 Here's how it was in St. Petersburg:

But if you are young and creative and tired of the old school narrative, then what you need is a MONSTRATION, a march with absurd slogans to reflect the absurdity of what's happening around. Looks and sounds like a Monty Python sketch. The first banner reads 'There's no slogan easier to understand than this one'. It's in response to earlier statements by the trade unions which said they don't want these young fellas to join their march because ordinary people don't get their slogans. The movement has proven extremely popular and monstrations are now taking place across Russia and the CIS.

 One of the slogan was 'Sasha Grey is coming to Russia', referring to former adult movie star expected to take a trip across Russia in a car.
