The All-Russian Confederation of Labour (VKT) showed solidarity with the Casual-T campaign when demonstrated outside Unilever's Moscow office. This was the fourth union solidarity action in Russia - VKT and the IUF-affiliated Agro-Industrial Workers' Union previously picketed Unilever-sponsored events and company offices. "We are here to tell Unilever that we are shocked by the violence against workers in Khanewal. Russian unions will continue to act against unfair labour practices untill Unilever meets the fair demands of the Pakistan Lipton workers", said VKT President Boris Kravchenko.
