Mobilized from Serpukhov, near Moscow, complained that they were sent into battle near the village of Makeyevka , Luhansk region ( was liberated in November by the Armed Forces of Ukraine ) without proper uniforms and training, and during the retreat, military personnel were fired upon by their own troops, many fighters died. The video message was published by the VChK-OGPU Telegram channel.
Now the surviving servicemen are in a military camp in Baranikovka, Luhansk region. The mobilized were settled in a destroyed house, they do not know what to do. In the building where they have to live, there is no electricity and no glass, and the men have nothing to eat.
One of the mobilized introduces himself as Vladimir Andreyevich Gurin. He says that there are few soldiers left. According to him, the command refused them, now they are trying to organize a company and command themselves. He also talks about the battalion commander, who introduced himself as "Point" and divided the company into two parts. The first part of 60 people went to fight for Makiivka, from where not all returned. The mobilized complain that they were told not to take anything with them, but in the end they were given poor uniforms and were not informed where they would be sent.
After the announcement in Russia of a “partial” mobilization, videos were posted on social networks in which the mobilized complain about the poor attitude of the command in the units, the lack of uniforms and the promised payments. Military personnel do not want to go to war with rusty weapons from the 1970s and without proper training. The sister of one of the mobilized, who published a video with complaints recorded by servicemen on social networks, was fined 30,000 rubles under the article on “discrediting” the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.
