Since the morning, mobilized men from Buryat are taken by bus to the city of Ulan-Ude, where the assembly center of the Buryat Republic Military Commissariat is located. In front of him, women are waiting for their relatives to give them cigarettes, for example, as Medusa described. Others are already organizing bundles of cigarettes or even warm hats through groups on social networks.

“I am 45, I have served for about a thousand years. I have not been in any combat zones. But whatever it is, we will shoot each other,” said one of the men mobilized to Meadows in Ulan-Ude.

The next person called, Serge, is 49 years old. He also says he served in the army for a very long time. He claims that he is not afraid of death. “Although I said goodbye to my wife, I also said goodbye to my daughters,” he says, unable to hold back his tears. “Okay, nothing,” he concluded. “I’m going to the front.”

According to Medusa, the army will send residents of Buryatsk mobilized for training in Chita or Blagoveshchensk in the eastern part of Russia. From there they travel forward. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced on Wednesday that Russia will call up 300,000 reservists with military experience into the army. However, as noted by the representative of the human rights organization Agora, Pavel Chekhov, Putin’s order basically allows the mobilization of an unlimited number of people.
