According to multiple reports and numerous posts on social media, Russian citizens have taken to the street to protest Vladimir Putin’s order to invade neighboring Ukraine. Unfortunately, footage captured at some of these protests seem to show Russian security forces arresting protestors in droves to silence dissent within the nation’s borders.
According to international media reports, protests have sprung up in at least 40 Russian cities following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine Wednesday night. According to the OVD-Info rights group, an organization that monitors political arrests in Russia, at least 235 people have thus far been taken into custody across at least 29 of those cities.

Russian authorities issued a statement seemingly threatening their own people, warning Russians not to take to the streets in protest.
“Offices of the Russian Interior Ministry and other law enforcement agencies are in full control of the situation around the country and will take all the necessary measures to maintain law and order,” the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs said.
“Be smart and don’t compromise your safety.”
In Russia’s capital city of Moscow, the central Moscow square has been closed off by law enforcement after numerous protestors were taken into custody.

Protests against the Russian invasion have similarly broken out all over the world, with the first reported protests occurring in Washington D.C. outside the Russian embassy at approximately 1 a.m. this morning, shortly after the invasion began.
