The commanders are furious.
The military unit of the Russian Federation, which for the first time entered Ukraine from Belarus and took part in fierce battles with the Armed Forces of Ukraine, refused to return to the war for the second time.
An occupier from this unit said that he and a number of his colleagues refused to follow the orders of the commanders to go to Ukraine for the second time, writes The Guardian.
According to him, the commanders reacted extremely negatively to their refusal to go to Ukraine, but eventually calmed down, as they could not find any leverage. The occupier has stressed that officially the Russian Federation is not at war, so the leadership cannot force soldiers to go to war against Ukraine.
"It soon became clear that not everyone agreed to this. Many of us simply did not want to go back. I don't want to return to my family in a coffin," the occupier complained.
