Russians are being seen crying and crying loudly as recruits leave their families, mothers and girlfriends for their deployment to the front lines. Children are crying and saying ‘come back daddy while your parents boarded a bus to participate in the war in Ukraine’.
Days before Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a secret order to mobilize a million reservists and put them on the front lines to fight Ukraine.
Videos posted online show a girl crying uncontrollably as her father climbs into a vehicle to join Putin’s rally. The child is also heard saying “Please come back Daddy” in the video.
The video is from Stary Oskol, in the Belgorod region, where several Russian recruits boarded buses to carry out their military service.
One claim was that these men – who are close to the Ukrainian border in the Belgorod region – would be the first of the newly recruited to the front, but they should all have at least a month of training first, according to daily mail.
Other videos posted on the internet show university students being taken by police from their auditoriums to the war service in Ulan-Ude, Buryatia, which is a region badly hit by bloodshed in Putin’s war.
The terrifying scene at Buryatia State University came just days after Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced that higher education students would not be enlisted.
Another video from Makhachkala, Russia, shows buses full of recruits leaving the city, and the recruits’ families, their mothers, girlfriends and wives are heard crying hard for their men believing they could not return home due to the war.
This came as flights from Russia were being sold out shortly after Putin announced the mobilization of reservists, which is the first since World War II. Flight fares have also risen to £10,000.
Seats on planes destined for international airports in Moscow and St Petersburg were quickly filling up after Putin’s televised address to the nation yesterday, leaving those who couldn’t afford a five-figure one-way ticket contemplating being drafted into the Ukraine war, according to daily star.
