Those mobilized in the Belgorod region rebelled because of living conditions, the attitude of the officers and the issuance of decommissioned weapons from the 1970s to them. On the footage published on the network, the man claims that about 500 people who are now in the Belgorod region are not assigned to any unit and lived for a week in "bestial conditions" without material support.
According to him, the weapons issued by him are not registered in military cards, written off from warehouses and are not listed anywhere, mobilized officers endure “bestial treatment” from officers, and spend a large amount of their own money on food and uniforms.
Also in the video, the men shout that when they arrived, they lived on the street for several days, so many fell ill and sit there with a high temperature. Also, most of the composition does not have helmets or bulletproof vests.
Since the beginning of Putin’s announcement of “partial” mobilization, the Russian authorities have rejected reports of a shortage of equipment for the mobilized, despite the fact that even on the government resource, conscripts are advised to take quadcopters and night vision devices with them to the military unit, and in some units they are urged to buy bulletproof vests in advance and dressing materials. The Insider also found that the wives of mobilized Russians are discussing in Telegram chats that it costs about 150,000 rubles to assemble a husband for war. In addition, women are advised to give mobilized tampons with them, which can be used to plug bullet wounds, and pads instead of insoles in shoes.
