Risikerer mange år i fengsel

Russere risikerer i verste fall mange år i fengsel for å demonstrere mot krigen. Det har også kommet meldinger om at menn som demonstrerer får vervepapirer i hendene når de blir arrestert.

TV 2 har snakket med russere som forteller om kaos og panikk. Mange flykter over grensen til naboland, mens andre planlegger å reise hvis situasjonen tilspisser seg ytterligere.

– Vil heller dø i fengsel

– Våre soldater dreper uskyldige folk. Dette er forferdelig. Jeg vil heller dø i fengsel enn å krige i Ukraina, jeg vil gjøre alt for å ikke bli sendt til krigen, sa Alexi fra Tomsk til TV 2 fredag.

Han er allerede pågrepet én gang, og risikerer ti års fengsel hvis han pågripes igjen, men det stopper ham ikke. Denne gangen vil han si fra om det han selv kaller «galskapen».

Aleksi er ikke alene. Han har mange venner som tenker det samme sier ham.

Hærverk mot vervekontorer

Ifølge Institute for the study of war (ISW), angriper demonstrantene offentlige bygninger og vervekontorer. De ble registrert slike angrep over hele landet de første 48 timene etter annonseringen om mobilisering av reservestyrker til krigen i Ukraina.

Skjerper lovene

Russlands president Vladimir Putin signerte lørdag lovforslaget som vil skjerpe straffene for militærnektere og soldater som overgir seg frivillig til fienden.

De risikerer opptil ti års fengsel.

Putin undertegnet også en lov som dreier seg om utlendinger som verver seg til den russiske hæren. De kan nå bli tilbudt russisk statsborgerskap.

Samtidig har russiske myndigheter startet en skinnfolkeavstemning i fire ukrainske fylker, som høster fordømmelse fra de fleste land.

Agendaen med denne fingerte folkeavstemningen er å kunne hevde at områende er russiske, og dermed kalle Ukrainas forsvar av sitt eget territorium, som et angrep på Russland. Det utløser russisk legitimitet til å tvangssende reservestyrkene for å kjempe i krigen.
