Russian citizens protest against partial mobilization by Putin

Russian citizens protested in the streets of some localities of the country in order to show their opposition to the partial mobilization announced a few days ago by the President of the country, Vladimir Putin. According to local media, several military recruitment centers were attacked with Molotov cocktails on Friday, and two enlistment offices were set on fire. So far, no one has been injured. These attacks came just minutes after the Kremlin called the reaction of the Russian population hysterical. The UN Human Rights Council was asked by Ukraine on Friday to create a tribunal with jurisdiction to judge war crimes, minutes after a UN mission concluded that they had been committed during the invasion, when referendums have started in the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Lugansk. Ukrainian ambassador Extraordinary Anton Korinevich said if these acts of aggression by a permanent member of the UN Security Council go unanswered, we will sink into a dark world of impunity and permissiveness.

The European Commission is trying to coordinate a common position among the countries of the European Union on how to deal with Russian citizens who are fleeing the country after the mobilization decreed by the Kremlin, while insisting on their obligation to analyze asylum requests individually. The situation is closely followed and there are ongoing contacts with member states, according to Eric Mamer, chief spokesman for the European Commission, but insisted that in any case there is a legal framework on asylum that continues to be in force. According to Kuleba's own tweet, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi gave his Ukrainian counterpart Dmytro Kuleba, China s respect for Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity. According to Wang, the head of Ukrainian diplomacy, said he was opposed to the use of force as a means of settling differences between countries.
