    Indeed. I doubt it's a good idea to forcibly arm people who don't want to fight against Ukraine. May be a trigger for the collapse of ruzzia into republics.

    Not just beatings.. Conscription notices served up too.


    In Moscow, hundreds gathered to protest on downtown Arbat Street after Putin announced the mobilisation. Police officers reportedly began giving draft notices to those they detained at the protest.

    Among them was Artem Krieger, a young reporter for the Sota Vision news outlet, who was detained despite being there to cover the protests.

    “All the men, absolutely everyone, was given a draft notice,” said Krieger during an interview with TV Rain from the back of a police van. That included men who had never served in the army, he said, who were now required to appear at their local recruitment centres.

    I can see this going horribly wrong for Putin. Or should that be wonderfully wrong? Unfortunately thousands of lives will no doubt be lost in the process.

    Yes - total MADNESS. They began handing agendas even to students right in the classroom.

    at the Buryat State University in Ulan-Ude, the National Guard began to pick up students directly from the classes. The Vice-Rector of the BuSU explained that this is how the security forces allegedly “work with citizens who are in the mobilization reserve
    I heard also Armenians, Belarusians and others living in ruzzia are being asked to "accept ruzzia citizenship" --> and immediately get conscription notice.

    HUGE mistake for him in my opinion. Republics who are now part of federation accumulate huge stress which will have to relax somehow..

    Just numbers - >1 million fleeing from mobilization entered Kazakhstan..

    For small countries like Georgia, this is a pretty serious situation.

    I wonder what the total number is across all borders??? Another nail in the coffin of Russia's economy.

    I don't know exact numbers, probably, millions. My friends in Belarus are saying that both the airport and the railways are flooded with ruzzians. Same for Minsk streets. There aren't sufficient apartments and hotels, but most try to escape further (Turkey, Georgia, UAE, Armenia, Hungary, Serbia, etc).
