NewsDesk, Sept 22 -The Russian people are fleeing their nation in large numbers after President Vladimir Putin declared “partial mobilisation,” which involves calling on thousands of military reserves for active duty in the ongoing battle, and threatened a nuclear assault.
The Defense of Ukraine tweeted on Thursday that “Russians are now aggressively Googling how to escape mobilisation and stay alive.” When there was still time, they would have been better off searching for how to make Molotov cocktails on Google. Molotov cocktails, or homemade “petrol bombs,” were a symbol of ordinary Ukrainians’ resistance to Russian forces when the invasion began seven months ago.
Russians are currently avidly searching Google for ways to evade mobilisation and survive. When there was still time, they would have been better off searching for how to make Molotov cocktails on Google.
In the tweet, it was mentioned that there had been an increase in “How to leave Russia” Google searches in the nation before President Putin’s speech. As a result of the President’s speech stoking concerns that martial law might be enacted and males of fighting age would not be permitted to depart, one-way airline tickets out of Russia also quickly sold out. As individuals with visas attempted to cross the border, there were lengthy traffic backups on Russia’s border with Finland.
The mobilisation is the biggest uptick in the Ukraine war since the invasion started in February and is the first of its kind by Russia since the Nazi assault in World War 2. It happened after recent Ukrainian resistance helped retake many locations from Russian soldiers and the militias it supports.
Because it is currently defined as “partial,” it will recruit more than 3 million reservists over the next few months. Russia asserts that it has a 2.5 crore-strong reserve force.
