Young Russian screams as pal breaks leg to avoid conscription to Putins army

A young Russian man attempting to avoid military service in Russia asked his friend to break his leg to stay out of the recruitment process.

The so-called "partial mobilisation" was part of Russia's plan to boost its invasion force to fight against Ukraine and dozens of men aged 18 to 35 have been banned to leave the regions.

The military call-up caused widespread protests in the country and panic among young men taking increasingly radical action to avoid military service.

Some tried to leave the country and cross the border to nearby countries like Georgia, Kazakhstan and Mongolia, with queues stretching miles long.

And in one video, a desperate Russian show the gruesome lengths some are prepared to go to avoid being called in the army.

He sits at the bottom of the stairs and places his feet on the steps.

And seconds later, his friend comes jumping down the stairs and sits on his thigh, cracking his bones.

The man lets out a scream and curls to one side as he holds onto the excruciating pain.

"Conscripts in the Russian Federation break their legs to avoid being mobilized," the video captioned.

This is one of the many examples of what young Russians think of Putin's plan to invade Ukraine.

One man told the Econimist: "We have fallen into hell – that's how I see it."

Another hoped his poor eyesight would spare him from the draft.

There's been videos circulating on social media showing newly mobilised Russian troops being denied food, water after they complained of the cramped conditions.

Twitter account "Ukraine Reporter" quoted a soldier saying: "They have restricted access to the bathroom.

"They have also been denied food and water. Russia's mobilisation looks like mass incarceration to a growing number of soldiers."

Some soldiers claimed they were only given armour and a uniform and being told to use tampons to soak up blood from bullet wounds.
