Russia[change | change source]

1,700 Russians in 53 Russian cities have been arrested arrested by police for protesting against the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine.[1][2][3] On 24 February, Russia said to not make any "unsanctioned" protest.[4] Authorities said that they would get arrested for protesting against the war.[5] Over 60 Russian activists and journalist have been arrested.[6]

Dmitry Muratov, a Nobel Peace Prize winner said that the Novaya Gazeta newspaper would be in both Ukrainian and Russian. A lot of journalists signed a document saying that Ukraine wouldn't hurt Russia. The document also asked Russian citizens "to say no to this war."[7]

Russian leader Alexei Navalny disliked the attack on Ukraine. He called the people who started the war "bandits and thieves."[8]

On 24 February, Lev Ponomaryov made a petition to protest the invasion. It got 289,000 signatures by the end of the day.[5]
