LIVE – War in Ukraine: after the political and military escalation, the EU is examining new sanctions against Russia – Le Figaro


At least 1,332 people were arrested Wednesday in Russia during improvised demonstrations against the partial mobilization for the offensive in Ukraine, announced in the morning by President Vladimir Putin, according to an NGO. According to OVD-Info, an organization specializing in counting arrests, the mobilizations took place in at least 38 cities in the country. These are the largest protests in Russia since those following the announcement of Moscow’s offensive in Ukraine at the end of February. AFP journalists in Moscow saw at least 50 arrests on one of the central arteries of the capital. In St. Petersburg, Russia’s second city, a whole bus of arrested people was taken by the police to the center. The demonstrators chanted “No to war!” and “No mobilization!”. “Everyone is scared. I’m for peace and I don’t want to have to shoot. But it’s very dangerous to go out now, otherwise there would have been a lot more people,” said a protester in Saint Petersburg, Vasily Fedorov, a student who wears a pacifist emblem on his chest. The Russian Interior Ministry , quoted by the Interfax agency, claimed in the evening to have repressed “attempts to organize unauthorized gatherings”. “All were stopped and the people who committed these violations were arrested and taken to the territorial police units for investigation and legal proceedings,” he said.
