About 120 people were detained in Makhachkala during Sunday’s protest against the ongoing mobilization in Russia for the war with Ukraine; ten criminal cases were initiated, Radio Swoboda reported on Monday. However, protests also continued on Monday.
Radio Swoboda (Russian editorial office of Radio Free Europe / Radio Svoboda) announced that 46 reports on administrative offenses had been drawn up against protesters. Eight criminal cases have been initiated concerning violence against a police officer, another two – calls for extremism.
On the official website of the Dagestan ombudsman, an official statement was published in which it is said that mobilization is the genocide of the people of Dagestan.
The protests in Makhachkala, the main city of Dagestan, a republic in the Caucasus that form part of the Russian Federation, were attended mainly by women who announced that they would not allow their sons, husbands and brothers to be sent to war.
Officials had to come face to face with women defending their sons, husbands, and fathers from mobilization. The agitated Dagestan women asked where the sons of the officials were, while the officials replied that they were complying with the mobilization law of the Russian Federation.
The police reacted brutally; the women were beaten, pushed and denounced with indecent words by the policemen. There is information that the detained protesters were to be transported to local police stations, where they were beaten and electrocuted.
Police allegedly used tear gas against the protesters.
Information has emerged that Vladimir Putin has ordered Ramzan Kadyrov’s Chechen troops to suppress Dagestani riots and protests.
There is also information about the suspension of mobilization in Dagestan. The order in this matter was to be issued by the local commissioner Mustafayev. At the same time, there are voices that this may be an action “in public”, aimed at calming the public mood, which, however, will not interrupt the actual mobilization to the army.
Dagestan, neighboring with Chechnya, is one of the poorest regions of the Russian Federation, with high unemployment.
It was from this region, as well as from other peripheral republics of the Russian Federation with a predominant non-Slavic population, that a significant part of the soldiers sent to the war against Ukraine in the first weeks of the Russian invasion came. The independent media pointed out that the majority of the Russian soldiers killed in the war came from Dagestan.
