At least 4,640 people were arrested during protests in Russia on Sunday, reports OVD-Info, an independent monitoring group that tracks detentions in Russia.

People were arrested in 147 cities, according to OVD-Info. Since the invasion, more than 13,000 people have been arrested in Russia in anti-war demonstrations, OVD-Info calculates.

CNN cannot independently verify these numbers.

Russia’s state news agency TASS quoted the Russian Interior Ministry as saying it had arrested 3,500 people “who took part in unauthorized public events” on Sunday.

“Units of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs, in cooperation with other law enforcement agencies, ensured law and order in places where unauthorized public events were held in a number of constituent entities of the Russian Federation,” Irina Volk, an official representative from the Russian Ministry of the Interior, reported to TASS.

Some of the cities in which they were captured included Moscow and Saint Petersburg.

Falk said the detainees were “transferred to the Territory Police Departments for investigation,” adding that “the issue of bringing them to justice has been decided.”
