After the announcement by President Vladimir Putin of a partial mobilization of its citizens, a large migratory flow from Russia to other countries was registered, this Thursday (22), by an aircraft radar application.
In the images it is possible to see many flights leaving the capital Moscow and heading towards Europe and Asia. See the image in the video above.
According to Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, the decree provides for the summoning of 300,000 citizens to collaborate in the confrontation against Ukraine.
In an interview with Russian state television, Shoigu stated that students and those who served as recruits and most of the millions of reservists would not be drafted.
The information was also said by Putin. “I repeat, we are only talking about partial mobilization. That is, only those citizens who are in the reserve and, above all, those who have served in the Armed Forces, have certain military specialties and relevant experience, will be subject to recruitment.”
A social media video of Russia’s land borders with several countries shows long lines of traffic trying to leave the country.
There was flow at the border crossings to Kazakhstan, Georgia and Mongolia. Another video showed dozens of vehicles lining up at the Zemo Larsi/Verkhny Lars checkpoint on the Georgia-Russia border.
