Russians are fleeing Putin’s mobilization to Kazakhstan


Russian blogger Ruslan Sokolovsky has already left Russia twice this year. First after the outbreak of war, then after the declaration of mobilization.

Migration instead of mobilization. To Kazakhstan instead of Ukraine. More than 200,000 Russians have chosen this route since mobilization was announced. One of them was Raslan Sokolovsky (27) from Shadrynsk.

Kremlin leader Vladimir Putin’s (70) decision to invade Ukraine forced the blogger to flee. “I didn’t want to accept Putin’s decision and I wanted to support his regime with my taxes. I posted anti-war videos and I was afraid of the consequences after the new laws were introduced,” he tells Blick.
