Protests against the mobilization took place in 32 Russian cities

According to the information available to “OVD Info”, 724 people have already been detained.

The BBC reports that summons were issued to protesters on Saturday who were arrested by the authorities. Protesters were arrested in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Irkutsk, Tomsk, Perm, Ufa, Ulanude, Yekaterinburg, Krasnodar and other cities.

“OVD Info” previously pointed out that the real number of detainees could be higher and indicated that it only publishes data on those people whose detention is clearly known.

It has already been reported that the “Vesna” (Spring) movement has called for protests.

As reported, on the morning of September 21, Putin announced that a partial mobilization of the armed forces was announced in Russia.

According to him, only citizens who are in the reserve of the armed forces will be mobilized, and primarily those who have served in the armed forces, who have specific military specialties and relative experience. Conscripts will undergo additional military training before being sent to the unit.

On the other hand, the media “Novaya Gazeta Evropa”, citing a source from the Russian presidential administration, reported that the unpublished paragraph 7 of the partial mobilization order signed by Putin this week states that it is expected that they will be mobilized up to a million people.
