The conversation was intercepted by Ukrainian intelligence.
A Russian occupier complained to his mother about the inability of the Russian army to fight against Ukraine. For this reason, soldiers in its ranks are massively refusing to go to war — 800 such cases have already been recorded.
The invader confessed that he was already among the “refuseniks”. The audio interception of the conversation was posted on YouTube by Advisor to the Head of the Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs Anton Herashchenko.
The conversation makes it clear that the occupier has already written a letter of resignation, but it has probably not been accepted yet.
“They took it, but nothing is known,” he said to his mother.
A Russian soldier named Eduard stressed that he gave the relevant report to one of the colonels, who had a whole stack of such documents, in which Putin's army soldiers declare their desire to stop participating in the war.
“Almost everyone filed the “refusal note”. They said that they would be handed over to the army headquarters, and then we'll see,” he admitted.
The Russian woman told her son that she had read in the news on Telegram that 800 Russian servicemen had already refused to participate in hostilities “due to low morale and psychological state.”
She also said that she wrote a “complaint” to the website of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, and is still going to send a letter there. According to her, the answer should come within 30 days, and if not, she will have to apply to the military prosecutor's office, but she does not have money for a “normal lawyer”.
“Hah, one can die meanwhile… Well, it’s okay, everything will resolve somehow. The people are already rebelling. They refuse to follow the orders,” the occupier expressed his conviction.
