Mobilized from Bashkortostan recorded a video message to the officials, where they complained about the “very meager” conditions in which they were left by the command: without water and food. After that, the men were sent to the front without preparation, the wives of three of them told Dozhd about this.
In the video , conscripts say that they were transferred to Energodar in the Zaporozhye region a week after the mobilization was announced. According to them, they did not have the necessary support at all. Part of the train was sent "to the fields where there is neither water nor food." They had to buy food on their own in the nearest village. Many mobilized had to sleep in the hangar on the bare floor. Because of this, many people got sick.
“How long can this go on? Either we are called to fight and defend our homeland, or we are called to sleep, as it turns out, and get sick, ”the men said.
According to Dozhd, already today, October 25, the military was sent to the "second front line."
So, one of the wives, Aigul Gazizova, said that she was able to talk to her husband in the morning, “he was already digging trenches at that time,” because shells were flying nearby. The wife of another serviceman, Denis Kalimullin, says that her husband and his colleagues were sent to the "second front line" again without food or water. It is, clarifies "Rain", about the second line of defense. The second takes the fight if they break through the first.
According to relatives, on October 4, conscripts were sent for "combat coordination" to Saratov. They did not undergo any training, "weapons were handed out to them for demonstration to the leadership, and then they were immediately taken back."
After that, two battalions from Saratov were sent to the Crimea, where they spent three days on a train. Only then they were brought to the forest near Energodar - and left there. At night, some of them were transported to the granary, the men were forced to repair agricultural machinery. For this they were promised water and food.
According to relatives, as a result, the soldiers ate almost nothing for five days, they drank water from puddles.
“When they were in the warehouses - you talk and hear how they cough terribly there, they didn’t have time to get there - and already. Which of them are warriors, hungry, cold, and even without water. At least water and food can be provided,” complains the wife of one of them.
