The European Union's Frontex border control agency said 66,000 Russians have entered the EU in the past week. This represents a 30% increase compared with the previous week, according to the agency. It said that most of the crossings were occurring at the Finnish and Estonian sections of the border. According to Frontex, most arrivals had visas, residence permits or dual citizenship. Frontex predicted that illegal border crossings could increase if the Kremlin decides to close Russia's borders for potential conscripts. Thousands of military-age men have been leaving Russia since President Vladimir Putin announced a "partial" mobilization last week.

@Coffee Link because most of those troops are posted at Russia’s various borders, including ones that Russia still considers to be allies. Russia won’t pull those troops because the country is deeply paranoid of being invaded.

The influx does change the demographics of Georgia or any other country where the Russians are fleeing to in the thousands. Also, the fact that Georgia has a disputed zone with Russia is a delicate and likely volatile situation. So it's not surprising that the Georgians are concerned.

I wonder if I'm the only person that wonders if some of the fighting age Russians fleeing to neighboring countries might actually be going there to be the first russian boots on the ground if Russia decides to invade those nations. Because I believe in human rights, I'd say let them in to escape conscription, but detain them or at least enforce strict controls on their movements. Hundreds of thousands of fighting age men from a country that is currently invading it's neighbour, and has a record of doing so, is something that I think people have a right to be wary of.

It would be like the region in the U.S. like the state of New York deciding to steal the lands of New Jersey. The head of New York would tell citizens in New York "I'm the leader of New York and my plan is to steal New Jersey. I'm ordering all men in New York to attack New Jersey to help me steal their property" It's freaking senseless. The citizens of New York should tell their leader "hey bud - you can't just go around stealing property - why not try to BUY the land instead, and acquire it legally? And NO, SORRY, we're not attacking the innocent people in New Jersey" Russians need to grow a pair and kick out that leader. I mean, how many innocent people have to lose their life before russians realize "It is OUR leader who has lost reality - it is OUR responsibility to solve that problem" INSTEAD OF RUNNING TO OTHER COUNTRIES .

As the man said in the video, most of the people he meets (though that may be because he runs a specifically anti-Putin organization) actually were against the war from the beginning, they just didn't see a point in leaving Russia before, though the other large group is people who mainly just don't want to have to be sent to Ukraine themselves. It is important to note that the people fleeing to other countries are obviously a different (I don't know if smaller or bigger) group than the people protesting the mobilization from inside Russia, who, based on their timing, are probably either mostly just against the mobilization, or anti-war people thinking post-mobilization is a good time to bolster their numbers by piggybacking on or joining with anti-mobilization sentiment.

When I think about it, it's kind of surprising how parallel the Russia-Ukraine war is to the USA-Vietnam war. Both wars involved a superpower supporting an unpopular regime ruling a fraction of a country against the the other half and local rebels wanting to join the other, more popular, half, with the superpower doing this for the purpose of stopping the geographical influence of a threatening rival ideology/alliance ("Communism" or NATO and "the West") from growing. Neither war was declared a war by the superpower. Both have brutal and totalitarian tactics being used by both supposedly democratic sides. (I'd guess Vietnam was worse, but this war is still ongoing.) Both resulted in the superpower resorting to drafting it's population to prolong the unwinnable war against most of the warzone's local population. Both drafts resulted in massive protests and draft dodging, including burning draft cards and fleeing to other countries. (A lot of USAmericans fled to Canada I think.)

As a person who owns a property in Georgia, this influx of people is very worrying to many Georgians; it is not just the fact that the numbers are very high, it is also wondering who is coming in - FSB? GRU? who are the people coming in? Many came in February, now when conscription arises, that number is so much more. The "government" is Russia leaning anyway, they just pay lip service to the wish to join the EU and NATO, which the Georgians majority want. With an oligarch controlling behind the scene, things were already fractious, but now it has raised much concern and alarm at the security issue. Where will they live? What will they do? How much has the cost of living increased since February? So many questions here - it is sad that people cannot fight this dictator, but Russia has had a bully in the Kremlin for over 20 years. With over 20% of Georgian land occupied by puppet governments under Russia's control, it is small already, and now the strain could be excessive. Amazing that Russia has the most land of any country, and are forcing their citizens to go to a small country which is bursting at the seams. All of my Georgian friends and neighbors are terrified for the future, it is another take over, albeit done without an army with weapons, just large numbers that may kill the whole country, and change it forever, or give Putin a reason to occupy the whole of Georgia.

@Espi "close cooperation with China".... Uh.... You may want to read up on the Sino-Soviet Split, as well as Russia's eight invasions of China. The Russian occupational regime in Xinjiang of 1937, which formed the blueprint of Russian ISIS in Syria later, was known as East Turkestan. Became a bit of a hot potatoe as the jihadi terrorists and their emir that Russia hired, would continue to operate independantly and got funding from the Middle East. You may have recently heard extremist racists such as Adrian Zenz yapping about the results of that Russian occupation: Prior to 2015 they were China's nr 1 terrorism threat with thousands of victims in a way that makes 9/11 pale by comparison. That does not make nice. China and Russia are enemies. Always have been. Are. And seeing as China does what's best for China and doesn't consider itself to be anyone's colony, much less Putin's colony, probably always will be. China scoops up resources on the cheap because that 3rd world country next door has them in abundance in the trackless wastelands that the orc hordes conquered, that's all there is to it.

Every person crossing the border in Georgia needs to be issued with a Temporary Protection Visa with a 3 yr limit. After that they must return to Russia. They should not be able to apply for citizenship or permanent visas from inside Georgia. This would prevent a huge influx of Russians being able to influence Georgian politics in the medium and long term.

"I'm against these policies" enables them by fleeing rather then fighting. At least the people protesting are stressing out Russian resources you just run? Now would be the perfect time for Georgia to retaliate and reclaim it's land. Russia wouldn't have any idea what to do.

Ukraine immediately banned men of aged from leaving the country. It was heartbreaking seeing families split up when we were leaving Ukraine to Moldova. I am surprised Putin didn’t put in place the same ban.

That was much smaller, and typically boys 18 to 22 that owned nothing, most without wives or children, many were already living a drop out life in the late 60s or very early 70s. The Nam protest marches coincidentally all but ended when Nixon rescinded the Johnson era draft during his reelection campaign. Nixon won an overwhelming reelection, including youth votes.

@Tony Petersen You might not have noticed, but they do have camera's in Russia. Yes, I have an inside source, its called Russia. Russian-Ukrainian war news and russian protests get news coverage. The media is firmly on the Ukrainians side. If the people of russia where more motivated to protest before the draft we would have heard about it. Do you know what the anti-war protests looked like 7 months ago? It was typically 2 or 3 women with signs who didn't say anything to not break the law. Now compare that to now and tell me the same energy, or save us both the trouble and just keep licking that russian boot.

@madhippy3 Do you have inside information as to how hard they have all been fighting? Or their possibly good reasons for not doing it openly, such as threats? And can we expect every human being to fight or be a hero? Is nobody allowed to be scared of the consequences for themselves, their loved ones or others? It's easy to judge from abroad.

If they officially renounce their Russian Citizenship and if all administrative processes confirm that they are are no longer considered a Russian Citizen by Russia that's fine.. But until then.. even if they enter Russia on Armenian Passport while holding Russian Citizenship... They will be treated as a Russian Citizen by Russian Legal system. Simple as.. Imperial Systems have multi-ethnic subjects and they do not differentiate... if it is written Russian next to your name.. Boom gone...have fun serving the nation..

Deploying Combined force of circa 2 million soldiers, 7,500 most modern Tanks, 14,000 Guns, 5,600 next gen Airplanes... All set Against circa 1 million last moment draftees, with 210 Tanks, 5000 Guns, and about 800 Airplanes and not functioning Walkie Talkies.. Yet, We Never Surrendered..And kept fighting...So nagh you have nothing on me or us with your silly goose talk.

Written in 1855 (Crimean War) "This then is my creed. I look upon Russia as the personification of despotism : in the present state of Poland and Hungary we see her work. Such a power can be curbed only by war, and must be curbed sooner or later, if Europe is to remain free. If we believe that God wills the liberty and happiness of mankind, how can we doubt that we are doing God's work in fighting for liberty against aggression" (The above is a letter sent to Richard Cobden MP)
