Russian soldiers have appeared in a video complaining about the chaos and mismanagement of the Kremlin’s partial mobilisation. Hundreds of conscripts appear in the video, believed to have been taken in the Belgorod region, as a military rebellion takes hold in protest at the bundled management of Vladimir Putin’s top brass.
“So, we are now in the Belgorod region. We are about 500 people with weapons, but we are not assigned to any part.
“We have lived in absolutely terrible conditions for a week.
“Absolutely terrible, No material supply, no money for pleasure.”
They continued: “Nothing is on the even side. Now it is also unknown. Who? Where? Where is he going?

“This is Article 222 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. The relations are terrible with the officers.

“If this continues, Ukraine will be the least of Putin’s problems.”

Russia is lobbying for a secret ballot instead of a public vote at the United Nations for next week, when the 193-member UN General Assembly considers whether to condemn its annexation of Donetsk and Luhansk in the east and Kherson and Zaporizhzhia in the south after staging referendums there.
