More unrest has erupted across Russia over Vladimir Putin's forced mobilisation of civilian reservists in more than a dozen major cities.
Anti-mobilisation protests broke out across the country after Putin drafted 300,000 reservists into his bloody war in Ukraine on Wednesday.
Hundreds of demonstrators were arrested as thousands are trying to flee the country.
Brutal riot police detained nearly 750 protesters in Moscow and St Petersburg, as well as Novosibirsk, Tomsk, Khabarovsk, Irkutsk, Ulan-Ude, Chita and Ivanovo.
Dramatic footage shows officers hauling away protesters- some of which were accused of illegal rallies and in some cases discrediting Putin’s armed forces, which could lead to up to 15 years in jail.
In Moscow, a young woman climbed on a bench and shouted "We aren't cannon fodder" before police took her away.
Police detained a man in a park just outside Red Square and whisked him away as others shouted "Shame".
