Inside Russia’s shambolic mobilisation including rusted guns, 60-year-old tanks & demoralised conscripts surrendering

FOOTAGE has appeared of Russia’s mobilisation in shambles as rusted guns and 60-year-old tanks are handed to demoralised conscripts who prefer to surrender than fight.

Mad Vlad‘s newly-mobilised recruits are being sent to the frontline with shoddy AK-47s that are either jammed or completely covered in rust.

A string of videos surfacing shared by news channel Visegrad24 online show conscripts complaining about the out-of-date kit that is in such disarray that troops have chosen to surrender to Ukrainian forces than fight them.

One recording showed a Russian conscript blasting his officers for handing him a flimsy assault weapon that had layers of rust along its barrel and a jammed cock.

“What are the pistols we’re getting, f****** hell! This is f*****. I’m in f****** awe,” the soldier can be hear saying.

Another clips showed a group of soldiers being handed AK-47s so weathered that the magazine cartridge and barrel are covered in rust and are falling apart.

The untrained troops are so taken back by the weapons that one says he’s without words by the state of kit he’d received.

Putin’s army has struggled to properly arm the 300,000 conscripts called up for duty and has grown so desperate that it’s allegedly started deploying Soviet-era tanks to the frontline, according to unverified footage released by a senior Ukrainian official.

The video showed six BMP-2s, a T-80 and five T-62 tanks on rail carriages ready for the frontline. The age of each model ranges from between 30 years to 60 years old.

Meanwhile, recently-conscripted fighters in Russian-occupied eastern Ukraine are said to be surrendering in their droves, according to The Sunday Times.


Ksenia Gerasimova, 47, a mental health expert who stayed behind in Izyum when it was occupied by the Russians, told the outlet she found soldiers manning checkpoints on her road who were completely pro-Ukrainian.

“They were miners from Luhansk, and they said they’d been at work one day when their supervisor told them to come up. Then they were taken into the Russian army and sent here,” she said.

“They were all saying that Putin was a d*******, and that the minute they heard the Ukrainians were coming, they’d abandon their guns and run. And that’s what they did.”

Russia’s shambolic approach to mobilisation shows no signs of abating as humiliating footage emerges of drunken conscripts fighting each other as they’re packed into school buses.

Mobilised men are expected to receive just two weeks of training before being shipped off to Ukraine, compared to the six months minimum training which is usually provided.

In one clip, apparently drunk men are seen fighting among themselves next to a bus taking them to a training camp.

A man wearing a military uniform tries to keep order as the new recruits scrap with each other, at one point shoving the recruiter over.

Boxes of supplies are seen next to the group of brawlers.

It isn’t clear where the clip was filmed.

A second extraordinary video appears to show a crate of beer being handed around the new recruits on board a bus heading for a training camp.

Another video shows drunken new soldiers loudly questioning where they are being taken as they stand around next to a row of buses on a remote road in Russia.

One of the recruits slurs in Russian: “What are we going for? Where are we going? F*** knows!”

A third video shows several drunken conscripts at the Dolinsk-Sokol airbase in Sakhalin, in Russia’s far east.

In the footage, showing men being led across the airfield, one recruit yells to himself while another staggers around, almost falling over at one stage.

A third is unable to stand and appears to have passed out in the grass next to the airfield.

Other images show recruits being led into crumbling yellow school buses due to a shortage of military vehicles in Russia.

It comes as many Russian men have looked for ways to avoid the draft and prevent themselves from being sent to die in Ukraine.

The Russian death toll in Ukraine is already believed to be more than 56,000, with tens of thousands more soldiers wounded.

Reports claim Russian men have been hastily getting married or registering themselves as carers for elderly children in a bid to get out of the war.
