With the beginning of mobilization in Russia, anti-war and anti-mobilization protests broke out in the Russian Far East, mostly performed by women.[1] Former Mongolian President Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj protested against usage of ethnic minorities such as the Buryats, Tuvans, and Kalmyks as cannon fodder,[2] and invited them to Mongolia.[3] The Tuvans belong to Turkic peoples but are also regarded in Mongolia as one of the Uriankhai peoples.[4]


Women protested in Ordzhonikidze Square, in Yakutsk.[5] Some elderly men were conscripted by mistake.[6]


Small groups protested in Ulan-Ude under handwritten signs “No war! No mobilization!” and “Our husbands, fathers and brothers don’t want to kill other husbands and fathers.” [7] The Free Buryatia Foundation collects appeals for help from families of mobilised men. Alexandra Garmazhapova, president of the foundation, some local people try to go to Mongolia.[8]

Two fires were set in Salavat.[9]
