Forced Conscription After the Declaration of Mobilization in Russia!

It was claimed that the video shared by a Twitter account on September 21, 2022 showed people who were conscripted after the declaration of mobilization in Russia.

The claim was shared by many users on social media.

Was the video in the post shot in Russia?

President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin declared partial mobilization on September 21, 2022. He announced that citizens who will be given basic military training will also be called up for military service.

On September 24, Putin signed the decree increasing the prison sentence for those fleeing the duty of mobilization. According to the decree, some changes were made to the military penal code in Russia.

Accordingly, soldiers who surrender voluntarily to the enemy army could be sentenced to 10 years in prison, and those who plundered during wartime could be sentenced to 15 years in prison.

With the decree, the penalty for evading military duty during mobilization was increased from 5 to 10 years.

After this decision, some videos were shared on social media, claiming that those who were likely to be drafted began to leave the country. One of these videos was the video that was spread with the claim that the Russians who escaped from military service after this decision were caught in their homes. The video, which shows people at home hiding in the refrigerator, was shot in 2015, not September 2022, when Putin’s military mobilization order was given.

The YouTube video leads to the website Obltv.ru. The incident in the video in the news published on February 19, 2015 is related to the theft in Yekaterinburg, Russia. The suspect was kept in the refrigerator to avoid going to court. The officers trying to get him out of hiding in the video are the enforcement officers.
