After Vladimir Putin’s address on Ukraine, protestors in Moscow sprayed graffiti on their doors. Several “Z” signs were used to drum up support for Russia’s “special military operation” to disarm and “denazify” Ukraine. “Don’t betray the motherland Dima” graffiti bore several of the “Z” signs used to drum up support for Russia’s “special military operation” to disarm and “denazify” Ukraine. Since the Kremlin started its invasion of Ukraine on February 24, tens of thousands of people have been imprisoned across Russia. Putin predicted that Russians will spit out traitors “like gnats,” with society benefiting as a result. The name of the first individual under investigation, a food blogger, was published by the Investigative Committee, a law enforcement organization, for disseminating “false information” about Russia’s army.
Following a wave of anti-invasion protests, Russia passed a law on March 4 that makes that offence punishable by up to 15 years in prison. Arkady Dvorkovich, the chairman of the International Chess Federation, should be fired immediately, according to a senior member of the ruling United Russia party.
