Russians Are Against War – Thousands of Russians Protest Putin’s Attacks On Ukraine, 1,700 Protesters Detained


Thousands of Russians have protested against President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

The protest rocked cities across Russia, as protesters showed anger over their country’s invasion of another country. So far, more than 1,700 people were arrested in at least 47 cities across the nation, according to rights group OVD-Info. The group was declared a foreign agent last year, when Putin launched a sweeping crackdown on activists, rights groups, and opposition figures. Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny on Thursday spoke out against the attacks during a court hearing, as members of the Russian political elite either remained silent or celebrated. “I have no method of communicating with the outside world,” Navalny said at the Lefortovo District Court hearing. “I ask that my appeal to the court and to the world be recorded,” he said. “I am against this war. I believe that this war between Russia and Ukraine is being waged to cover up the robbery of Russian citizens and to distract their attention from the problems that exist within the country from the degradation of the economy,” Nalvany added.
