After the announcement by Russian President Vladimir Putin of a partial mobilization, anti-war and opposition organizations announced protests against this decision, they have already begun in some cities of the Russian Federation.

As a rule, Russian security forces are on duty near the venues of rallies.

Some cities are reporting detentions.

So, in Khabarovsk, 12 people went to the central square to protest against mobilization.

They fear detention, so they don't have any posters.

In Irkutsk, about 60 people took part in a rally against mobilization, which took place on Labor Square.

According to social networks, police arrived at the scene of the protest.

They dispersed the rally and detained at least 20 activists.

One of the detainees had a "No to War" poster in his hands.

It is reported that rallies also began in Yakutsk, Novosibirsk, Barnaul and several other major cities of Russia.

Several people came out, without any posters.

At the same time, along with the protesters, security forces are on duty.
