Many occupiers refuse to participate in hostilities against the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
The occupying troops are suffering huge losses in the war in Ukraine and mass riots are breaking out in Putin's army. Many occupiers refuse to participate in hostilities against the Armed Forces of Ukraine in particular.
A recent audio intercept published by the Defence Intelligence of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine evidences it.
During a telephone conversation, a Russian military man stationed in the Kharkiv region spoke about the recruitment in the Russian Armed Forces.
He noted that after the lifting of the recruitment restrictions of the "second army of the world", only "ragtags" are entering its ranks.
The occupant also said that there are many escapists in their ranks and not a single soldier from the temporarily occupied Crimea.
“I have 11 people left from the platoon, it should have been 30. We have a battalion of 320 people, now we have 52... Well, escapists... Not only wounded but also killed. There are a vast number of escapists really! When they opened recruitment with no age and criminal restrictions and medical examinations, only ragtags are coming here,” he said.
In addition, the invader spoke about an unfortunate case from the front when his man lost part of his body, exploding on their own trip wire.
“Our man got blown today. We were retreating, leaving our positions. I made trip wires there. Without asking, he went to pick up his backpack with a raincoat tent, an oilcloth. Well, I set it correctly, he did not see it. So, it has torn off a piece of his ass!” added the occupier.
