In this talk, we will present a Special section of the journal Inner Asia (25; 2023), entitled “The Voices of Russia’s Minorities on the Invasion of Ukraine”. This special section aims to provide a platform for the voices of Russia’s ethnic minority anti-war activists. It looks at how the full scale invasion into Ukraine has affected ethnic minority populations of the Russian Federation and places their anti-war activism in the context of online and offline social movements.
