War in Ukraine: the mobilized in the misunderstanding before their departure on the front – BFMTV


Thousands of Russian citizens are trying to leave the country in order to avoid a mobilization which, according to some media, could go well beyond 300,000 men. Anger is being heard more and more. Two days after the last speech by Russian President Vladimir Putin, during which he decreed a partial mobilization of the 300,000 reservists in order to support the soldiers already present on the spot, the first departures were made in pain. is not correct”On social networks and in several independent media, footage shot in some of the poorest regions of Russia shows the departure of several dozen men, after heartbreaking farewells. Among them, Dmitry, a student who did not think he would leave his family so soon.”I did not expect to have to leave today, no one told me anything in the morning. They gave me the order to mobilization with the obligation to come here at 3 p.m. We waited 1:30 a.m. then the officer came and said that we were leaving now, “he explains to the media Ostorozhno Novosti, in a video relayed by BFMTV. During this same sequence , his father, who had come to say goodbye to him, allowed his dissatisfaction to be expressed and accused Vladimir Putin of not having respected his word. “The presidential decree stipulated that no student would be recruited. Finally, it is the case, they recruited him without any explanation, it is not correct”, he criticizes.LeaksThis mobilization, although partial , had the effect of an electric shock within Russian society. In recent hours, many Russian men have tried to leave the country via the Finnish and Georgian borders, while plane tickets from Moscow and St. Petersburg have been taken by storm. According to BFMTV, Sergei, 27, who left the country since March, explains why he does not want to fight in Ukraine. “I am not ready to participate in this war crime. It is a war crime that is taking place and I have a business abroad. My life is elsewhere, I am not ready to participate in this crime against humanity”, he explains. Tuesday, on the eve of the partial mobilization , Parliament had voted heavy prison sentences for those who refused to join the army or deserted. However, the text has not yet entered into force. Stress and disorganization Especially since according to Colonel Michel Goya, defense consultant for BFMTV, the notion of reservist is absolutely not the same in Russia as in Western countries, and the Vladimir Putin’s decree could in fact concern much more than 300,000 men: “If we stick to the criteria, it concerns 25 million people. Any man who has worn the uniform, does his military service, even students who have made a military preparation to avoid the service. 25 million men say to themselves ‘it could be me’, there is a stress which infuses in this society which had been preserved from the war until then. we must add a certain disorganization of the Russian army, visibly unprepared for such a long conflict. “Nothing is really organized, it takes executives, non-commissioned officers, officers who are in Ukraine, there is a lack of equipment, it is the most total haste”, he adds. Thursday evening, a spokesman for the Russian army general staff had however indicated that 10,000 people had already volunteered to be mobilized for the offensive in Ukraine in the space of only 24 hours.
