The number of Russians who evade the draft exceeds the number of soldiers involved in the invasion of Ukraine in February.
More than 200,000 Russians left the country after President Vladimir Putin announced a partial mobilization. This is stated in the CNN material.
According to journalists, after leaving the Russian Federation, Russians “settled” to a greater extent in Kazakhstan, Georgia and several countries of the European Union.
Deputy head of the Kazakh Ministry of Internal Affairs Marat Kozheev said that more than 100,000 citizens of the Russian Federation had crossed the state border in the last week alone. Just over 53,000 Russians left their country for Georgia.
Almost 66 thousand more citizens of the Russian Federation were forced to come to the member states of the European Union after the announcement of partial mobilization. The CNN material says that this information does not include information from Mongolia and Armenia, to which the Russians also traveled through official checkpoints.
“The number of Russians fleeing the country to avoid mobilization probably exceeds the number of troops, who invaded Ukraine in February,” the journalists stressed, publishing the statistics of citizens who left the Russian Federation.
It is worth noting that the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that more than 100,000 people were drafted into the ranks of the Russian Armed Forces since the announcement of partial mobilization . According to the Ukrainian command, the Kremlin is throwing untrained soldiers to the front line.
In addition to ordinary Russians, millionaire bloggers are also leaving the country amid the announcement of partial mobilization. According to unofficial data, in recent days, Yuri Khovansky, Gusein Gasanov, Nikolai Sobolev and other popular personalities left the Russian Federation.
