The BBC reported on its Russian-language website that the queue of cars at the border crossing on the Russian-Georgian border is already more than six kilometers, and people have been waiting at it for many hours. After the Russian president announced the so-called partial mobilization on Wednesday, many Russians decided to leave the country. Tickets for countries with which Moscow has visa-free relations began to disappear, and queues began to form at the land borders not only with Georgia, Kazakhstan or Mongolia.

The road through the Verkhnij Lars-Kazbegi crossing is the only option for crossing the land border from Russia into Georgia. The Russians are now waiting for hours at the crossing. Some even switch to bikes to get to the other side faster. You cannot cross the border on foot.

“I’ve been in line since 9 am (Thursday) and got to the other side faster because, as you can see, I used a means,” the Russian from Voronezh, who managed to cross into Georgia by bike late Thursday night, told reporters. .

“For now, I will rent an apartment, and then we will meet each other. I am still lucky because I can more or less work from home ”, he described his plans.

Most of those interviewed by the BBC at the border explained their departure from Russia by declaring a partial mobilization. “The last time we spent about an hour at the border, it has now taken us about 12 hours,” said a young couple who were recently on vacation in Georgia.

According to the couple, the Russian border guards allowed almost everyone to pass without problems, while the Georgians rejected a few people who thought they might be originally from the Caucasus.

Queues at the borders with Georgia, Kazakhstan or Mongolia are also captured by some videos on social networks. But Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov described the news about the fronts as false on Thursday.

Also on the Russian-Finnish border, according to a Reuters correspondent, traffic has become more crowded than usual. But there are no reports of huge queues coming from the Finnish border. Unlike Georgia, Russians need a visa to enter Finland.
