Protests against partial mobilization held across Russia

Protesters are taking to the streets across Russia after President Vladimir Putin announced a partial mobilization of military reservists on Wednesday.

In central Moscow, security forces detained demonstrators shouting anti-war and anti-mobilization slogans and shoved them into vehicles.

Protesters were similarly detained in Ekaterinburg.

A Russian human rights group said at least 1,251 people were detained in 38 cities as of late Wednesday.
