More than 1,000 people have been arrested in demonstrations across Russia after Vladimir Putin called up 300,000 reserves to continue the invasion of Ukraine.

Russians have faced the prospect of being detained for attending an anti-government rally for years - but they have also been silenced by military censorship since the invasion began on 24 February.

Thousands joined ant-war protests at the start of the conflict - in spite of potential consequences, including losing their jobs and even being jailed - but now many are too fearful to speak out.Footage of the scuffles showed multiple uniformed officers surrounding individual protesters. One woman was seen being escorted away as she tried to stop police detaining another male demonstrator.Image:However, some among the older generations have been convinced mobilisation is necessary, Magnay said.

Mr Putin addressed the nation this morning for the first time since sending troops into battle in February, in what Russia has described as a"special military operation".
