Unrest Amidst Military Mobilization
In a shocking turn of events, a military commissioner was shot at an enlistment center in Siberia.

This incident is a chilling reflection of the mounting tensions over the Kremlin's controversial partial military mobilization backing Russia's ongoing unprovoked invasion of Ukraine.
Public Dissent and Protests
President Vladimir Putin's call for mobilization for the war in Ukraine has sparked nationwide protests and the mass exodus of men potentially eligible for military service from Russia. The repercussions of this call have seen nearly 2,500 people detained across Russian towns and cities for protesting against the mobilization. Moreover, several military enlistment centers and other administrative buildings have been victims of arson attacks in recent days.
Leak Reveals Anti-War Sentiments
A significant data leak from a top Kremlin information agency has exposed the scale and extent of anti-war protests throughout the Russian Federation. This revelation contradicts public opinion polls indicating overwhelming support for Vladimir Putin's policies. The data shows that in 2022, protests were widespread, spanning from St Petersburg to the far east. Anti-war sentiments and the fight for ecology were the primary causes of these demonstrations. Astonishingly, one in five public protests in 2022 was anti-war, accounting for 70% of all detentions at rallies.
