Russian Propagandists Turn On Putin Over Mobilisation Order
EKO HOT BLOG reports that Russian warmonger, Margarita Simonyan has been among those to criticise Vladimir Putin’s mobilisation order which hopes to call up 300,000 additional troops.
The plan to bring in 300,000 additional troops has been slammed after recruitment officers reportedly attempted to draft men who are ineligible to serve under Putin’s decree.
The order was instead supposed to target younger Russian men with combat experience.
Margarita Simonyan was one key warmonger who criticised Russia’s recruitment officers.
She said: “Do you really think that if (Putin) did not even want to send conscripts to Ukraine, he meant to send there hairdressers, female cardiologists, people with broken spines, the teacher of the year from Pskovk, an orchestra musician or a theatre director?
“This is not the horrible liberal scum on the payroll of the West: These are our people and our nation we have to protect.”
TV host Olga Skabeyeva even urged criminal prosecution for those who abuse their powers in drafting men.
State-media outlet RIA Novosti also claimed a 33-year-old sports reporter was barred from boarding a plane for the Turkish Mediterranean coast on Monday due to the mobilisation order.
There has also been a surge in Russians crossing the border into the European Union.
According to EU border agency Frontex, the number of Russians making the crossing has increased by 30 percent.
Frontex said in a statement: “Over the past week, nearly 66,000 Russian citizens entered the EU, more than 30 percent compared to the preceding week.
“Most of them arrived to Finland and Estonia.”
The statement also revealed that 30,000 Russians arrived in Finland in the last four days alone.
