More than 850 People have Been Arrested in Russia over Anti-War Protests

Russian police have arrested more than 850 people who took part in anti-war protests in several cities across the country after President Vladimir Putin launched a war against Ukraine.

More than 2,000 people attended an anti-war protest in Pushkin Square in central Moscow, and more than 1,000 gathered in St. Petersburg. Many of them were arrested by police, who banned public gatherings.
Many Russian activists have called for protests on social media since Putin launched a military offensive against Ukraine early Thursday morning. 

In Moscow, protesters chanted “No to war!” 

“I am in shock. “My relatives and friends live in Ukraine,” said Anastasia Nestulia, 23. 

“What should I tell them on the phone?” Hold on !? ”She says many are afraid to protest.

The atmosphere was similar in St. Petersburg. 

“I have a feeling that the Russian authorities have gone crazy,” said Svetlana Volkova, 27. She agrees that few have the courage to protest. “People are deceived by propaganda.” 

As three police officers pulled away from the protest, a young man shouted: “Who are you fighting with? “Arrest Putin.”
