A Russian politician who opposed the invasion of Ukraine has reportedly been nabbed at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Viktor Kamenshchikov, who served as a deputy in the Vladivostok Duma, resigned from the Communist Party on February 27, just days after Russian President Vladimir Putin launched the invasion of Ukraine. Vladivostok is a large port city in eastern Russia. Its duma is equivalent to a city council.

“I do not agree with the position of the party leadership,” Kamenshchikov told Russian newspaper Kommersant at the time, specifically alluding to “military operations in Ukraine and the use of Russian troops on the territory of a neighboring state.


“I am against war in principle,” he added.

It was not known where along the U.S. border Kamenshchikov was being detained or if he was seeking asylum. Russian state news service RIA Novosti reported that a source said Kamenshchikov had been arrested, although “it is not yet known for what exactly, presumably for an illegal border crossing.”

Kamenshchikov’s opposition put him at risk of arrest in Russia, where spreading what is determined to be “fake” information about the military can mean up to 15 years in prison. Kamenshchikov said in an interview that people’s failure to oppose the war, “means that they are for it” and warned Russia will have to pay for “5,10, 20 years for all the horror that is happening today.

“Don’t call me a hero because I defiantly left the party,” he said.

In a March 5 interview with, he accused the government of tricking deputies into voting for a military invasion. Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov and the ultra-nationalist Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LPDR) leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky knew about Vladimir Putin’s war plans in advance, he said.
