A Russian politician who opposed the Ukraine war has been apprehended for allegedly entering the US-Mexico border illegally

A Russian politician who vehemently opposed his country’s invasion of Ukraine, was recently detained at the United States-Mexico border for ‘trying to illegally enter the US.’

Viktor Kamenshchikov, 31, was a Communist Party member who served as a deputy at the Vladivostok Duma parliament in the eastern Russia region of Primorsky, until February this year.

He filed an application to leave the party two days after he shared a furious post  about the invasion on February 25, in which he called Russia the ‘fascist aggressors’ and said their ‘worthless army will run in fear’ from the Ukrainians they were invading.

It’s unknown when Kamenshchikov fled Russia and traveled to Mexico, although he has not been seen publicly or attended any parliamentary hearings since speaking out against Putin’s invasion.

He has now been arrested at the US-Mexico border.

A source told Russian state news agency RIA Novosti that ‘it is not yet known’ why Kamenshchikov was arrested but ‘presumably for an illegal border crossing.’

Kamenshchikov reportedly has a child who is a United States citizen by birthright.
