# of Anti-War Protest Arrests in Russia

Trustworthy News Ukraine Conflict Improve the News

Question

CBSNews reports that:

"More than 5,000 demonstrators have been arrested in Russia since President Vladimir Putin ordered troops to invade Ukraine last week, according to the Russian human rights media project OVD-Info."

"The protests come as Russians begin to face long lines at banks, one of many signs the country's economy is plummeting under the pressure of widening sanctions from the west."

During the protests beginning after the detainment of Alexei Navalny in January 23, over 13,000 people were arrested in Russia between January and April.

According to OVD-Info, an independent human rights media project dedicated to political persecution in Russia, 6831 people were detained at anti-war actions in Russia starting from February 24.

How many people in Russia will be arrested for participating in anti-war protests before 2023?

This question will resolve at resolution time according to the number reported by OVD-Info, an independent human rights media project dedicated to political persecution in Russia.

If information from OVD-Info is unavailable, credible non-profit, academic, or media reports will be relied upon instead.
