Russia Struggles against Anti-War Protests


Deutsche Fassung


On February 24, 2022, Russia began its military attack on Ukraine. In the first three weeks alone, more than 15,000 people who publicly protested against the war were detained in Russia. Arrest warrants have been issued for more than 700 people. The private homes and offices of human rights organizations have been searched. Criminal proceedings have been introduced against 27 people. Dozens of publications have been blocked. In addition, sentences were imposed for “discrediting a deployment of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.”
