Kremlin crackdown silences war protests, from benign to bold

Dmitry Reznikov holding a blank piece of paper with eight asterisks that could have been interpreted as standing for "No to war" in Russian, stands next to a Police van as he was detained in Moscow, Russia, Sunday, March 13, 2022. The court found him guilty of discrediting the armed forces and fined him 50,000 rubles ($618) for holding the sign in central Moscow in a mid-March demonstration that lasted only seconds before police detained him.
