Nearly 1,400 people arrested in Russia for rallying against mobilisation

Russia’s government has dismissed as “exaggerated” reports of an exodus of draft-age men from the country following President Vladimir Putin’s military mobilisation. But a Kremlin spokesman did not deny local media claims that some detained anti-mobilisation protesters were given enlistment papers. He said it is not against the law to do so. Nearly 1,400 people have been arrested for protesting against Mr Putin’s move, his biggest effort yet to pour more troops into Ukraine. He reportedly wants 300,000 conscripts to join the fray.
