For carrying a single blank banner, we have seen how the Russian authorities have arrested a woman in Nizhny Novgorodleaving images of police brutality also in Yekaterinburg. They are the protests that are taking place in Russia against the invasion in Ukraine.
In Moscow, the Police try to repress any type of protest. The translator Elena Bogush tells in the video that right now “there is a lot of repression“, with much “restricted” information. We also see the moment when a presenter cuts off the word to a military man who claims that Russian soldiers “are dying” in Ukraine.
“No no no no! I don’t want to hear it! One minute, listen. For! Our boys are ending the fascist scum, “he assures. And that presenter does not want reprisals, with journalists threatened with sentences of up to 15 years in prison for giving what they consider false information about the Armed Forces.
