Anti-war protesters arrested for release of white doves

A group of Russian anti-war protesters were arrested in Moscow on Tuesday for releasing ‘peace doves’ outside Russia’s defence ministry as they called for an end to the conflict with Ukraine.

Yesterday Russian President Vladimir Putin said Russia reserved the right to use all options to protect compatriots who were living in "terror" in Ukraine, but force was not needed for now.

Putin denied the Russian armed forces were directly engaged in the bloodless seizure of Crimea, saying the uniformed troops without national insignia were "local self-defence forces".

On the ground in Crimea, a predominantly Russian-speaking peninsula in the Black Sea, tension remained high. Russian forces fired warning shots in a confrontation with Ukrainian servicemen, and Russian navy ships were reported to have blockaded the strait separating the Ukrainian Black Sea peninsula from Russia.
