A young Russian man urged a friend to break his leg so that he could avoid being drafted into Putin’s war.
Numerous men between the ages of 18 and 35 have been forbidden from leaving the territories, and Russia intends to increase the size of its invasion army to combat Ukraine.
Numerous people protested the military call-up around the nation, and young men in a panic have been resorting to drastic tactics to stay out of the conflict.
Some people marry mothers who have children while others volunteer to care for the elderly. Earlier this week, one even set himself on fire in retaliation for the partial mobilization. In a military recruitment center, a teenage recruit was caught on camera shooting a recruiter.
Many others have also been seen attempting to leave the nation.
A desperate young man who wanted to avoid being called up in the army asked his friend to break his leg.
In a video shared online, the man is seen sitting at the bottom of the stairs with his feet on the steps. Seconds later, his friend comes jumping down the stairs and sits on his thigh, cracking his bones.
The man screams in pain and curls to one side as he holds onto the leg.
“Conscripts in the Russian Federation break their legs to avoid being mobilized,” the video captioned.
This is one of the many examples of what young Russians think of Putin’s plan to invade Ukraine.
One man told the Econimist: “We have fallen into hell – that’s how I see it.”
