Russia has announced partial mobilisation. How many more people need to die?

News of people arrested at anti-mobilisation protests being served their mobilisation papers right there in the police station.

Reached out to my friends in Moscow, the mood is very very anxious...

My anxiety levels are once again through the roof today, but need to focus on getting work done and being there for the family 😬

"Classified article of mobilisation decree allows MOD to mobilise up to 1 million people" (Novaya Gazeta).

Of course, the fuckers would lie about the numbers, and why not? They lied about everything else.

News today that the government is planning to close down borders and prevent men of mobilisation age from leaving Russia.
A childhood friend made the escape today, a 48h journey combining planes and buses to a safe third country.
I’m glad he is out of danger, and I hope his family can join him soon.

@gosha Lying in wait for now, gathering documents and putting things in order. Will take no action for a week or two. Closed borders are a possibility, but a manageable one. At any rate, I'd rather *criminal things* than let myself be dragged to war.

Beginning to get my :fist: together after a week of doomscrolling, on the plus side.

@creitve wishing you strength, and luck for *criminal things*, but please be safe.

@gosha Thanks, it does mean a lot 🖤.
