Russia-Ukraine War: Violent protests against Putin in Russia;  civilians not for war

Moscow: Vladimir Putin has announced the deployment of the Reserve Army in the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine (Russia-Ukraine War) for the last seven months. There are strong protests against this in many places in Russia. Putin announced on September 21 that Russia’s 400,000 reserve troops would be deployed for combat, with thousands of civilians taking to the streets in 38 cities including Moscow, St. .

In many places, police had to use sticks to disperse anti-Putin protesters. Some media have claimed that the police detained over thirteen hundred civilians across the country during the demonstrations.

The police appealed to the protesters to remain calm and directed them to return home. But as the protest intensified, the police had to resort to lathis. A video of police kidnapping some women during anti-Putin protests has gone viral and has led to criticism of the police system.
