A local monitoring organization reports that more than 1,000 individuals have been detained around the country as a result of Wednesday’s demonstrations against Moscow’s partial mobilization order.

Some of those detained, according to unaffiliated news sources, received a summons ordering them to appear at military enlistment offices on Thursday, the first day of conscription.

When questioned about claims that inmates in custody were receiving conscription notices, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov stated it was not illegal.

The battle, which has already claimed hundreds of lives and forced millions to flee their homes, has escalated in response to President Vladimir Putin’s demand for 300,000 more Russians to join the fight in Ukraine.

According to the OVD-Info observer, anti-war protests on Wednesday resulted in the detention of roughly 1,400 persons across 38 Russian towns.

At least 50 people were reportedly held by police in anti-riot gear in central Moscow, according to AFP news agency journalists, while in Saint Petersburg, police reportedly surrounded and detained a small number of protestors, loading them onto a bus while they screamed, “No mobilization!”

Everyone is frightened. According to AFP, protester Vasily Fedorov, a student wearing a pacifist emblem on his chest, declared: “I am for peace and I don’t want to have to fire.”

Some of the 40 protestors who were detained during an anti-war march were put aboard buses by police in Yekaterinburg, the fourth-largest city in Russia.

“Goddamn bald-headed nut job,” one woman in a wheelchair yelled in reference to the Russian president. We’re still all defending him even though he’s about to detonate a bomb on us. I’ve said enough, according to the AP news agency.

“Thousands of Russian men, our dads, brothers, and husbands, will be put into the meat grinder of the conflict,” the Vesna opposition movement warned in a call for rallies.
The first nationwide anti-war demonstrations since the conflict started in late February were held on Wednesday.

Data from airlines and travel agencies revealed that flights out of Russia were almost completely booked this week, indicating an apparent exodus of citizens hesitant to take part in the fighting.

Putin also promised to defend Russian territory using “all available methods” during the announcement of the mobilization.

Additionally, a day earlier, the occupied Ukrainian territories controlled by Moscow declared that this week’s annexation referendums in Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson, and Zaporizhia will urge residents to join Russia.

The West has criticized the elections because they are taking place under occupation and without supervision.
