“Whatever, we’ll shoot each other.” Buses begin to bring in the mobilized Russians

According to the Taiga.info server, the first mobilized people also left en masse from Yakutsk, another republic in the eastern part of Russia. Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the partial mobilization on Wednesday.

From the morning, mobilized men from Buryat are being taken by buses to the metropolis of Ulan-Ude, where the assembly center of the military commissariat for the Buryat Republic is located. In front of it, women are waiting for their relatives to give them, for example, cigarettes, Meduza described. Others are already organizing collections of cigarettes or even warm hats through groups on social networks.

“I am 45 years old, I served about a thousand years ago. I have not been in any combat zones. But whatever, we’ll shoot each other,” one of the mobilized men told Meduze in Ulan-Ude.

The next person summoned, Sergej, is 49 years old. He too says that he served in the army a very long time ago. He claims that he is not afraid of death. “Even though I said goodbye to my wife, I also said goodbye to my daughters,” he says, unable to hold back tears. “Well, nothing, I’m going to the front,” he concludes.

According to Meduza, the army will send the mobilized residents of Buryatsk for training in Chita or Blagoveshchensk in the eastern part of Russia. From there they travel to the front. According to Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu’s announcement on Wednesday, Russia will call up 300,000 reservists with military experience into the army.

However, as the representative of the human rights organization Agora, Pavel Čikov, pointed out, Putin’s order allows an essentially unlimited number of people to be mobilized.

Some people who took part in demonstrations in several Russian cities on Wednesday must also enlist. Police arrested nearly 1,400 protesters. Most of them were in St. Petersburg and Moscow.

Some Russians, on the other hand, decided to leave their homeland under the threat of mobilization and bought air tickets en masse from Russia to more eastern countries.
