At least 1,312 Russians were detained by police during protests across the country against President Vladimir Putin's declaration of mobilization earlier on Wednesday, according to the independent OVD-Info monitoring group.

Detainees in several cities were being threatened with subpoenas to join the Russian military, OVD-Info added, further stating that most arrests were made in St. Petersburg and Moscow. Hundreds gathered in the Russian capital, chanting "no war," "send Putin to the trenches" and "let our children live," the independent Moscow Times said, citing videos circulating on social media.
