Anti-war protesters took to the streets in Russia where they demonstrated against the shock and awe blitzkrieg invasion of neighboring Ukraine and in shocking videos posted to social media, things may have gotten rough as they were brutally suppressed.

In a shocking video that was posted on Twitter that has a distinct resemblance to the violent measures that were brought to bear against peaceful protesters in Ottawa last week, a woman is brutally battered by goons who are identified as being Russian police and it has gone viral.

With Putin’s well-established intolerance of dissent – a common trait shared with western leaders in Australia and Canada – the video is a foreboding example of the horrors that likely await those who would dare to turn out in protest of the military action that has shocked the world and raised the possibility of a global conflict on a scale unseen since WWII.

However, the caveat exists that there have been many bogus videos of events in Ukraine that have been circulating on social media since Putin’s escalation so the video has to be viewed with caution and discernment.

Another video shows heavily armed police sent into the streets to confront protesters, using raw force if necessary.

Other videos that have been posted to Twitter also allegedly show the police response in Russia.

Multiple media outlets are reporting that over 1,700 arrests have been made.

“More than 1,700 people have been arrested across Russia in connection to anti-war demonstrations, according to OVD Info, an independent organization monitoring political persecutions. Video shared online showed large swathes of protesters in Moscow and the historic capital of St. Petersburg,” according to Fox News.

Reuters reported that “a Russian opposition activist who called for anti-war protests after Russia launched a massive military operation against Ukraine told Reuters that she had been detained by police on Thursday.”

“I was detained on my way out of the house,” Marina Litvinovich, the Moscow-based activist, wrote on Telegram. She confirmed her detention separately in a message to Reuters,” according to the outlet.

Additional images of protests in Russia are also getting attention on Twitter including large demonstrations in St. Petersburg and Moscow.

Protests are also taking place across the world, including in the U.S.

Some skeptical Twitter users posted their reactions to the troubling scenes from Russia, suggesting that there has been a double standard when it comes to media coverage.

The crackdown will likely intensify along with the military campaign in Ukraine which continues to escalate with some reports that the Russians are advancing on the capital city of Kyiv.
