Reservists are barred from leaving Russia

Faced with the constant leaks of Russians reported since the president Vladimir Putin started a military mobilization to summon new soldiers to war, the Russian government started to veto the issuance of passports to reservists as a way to prevent them from leaving the country. according to Kremlin, will be denied the granting of the document to Russian citizens who were summoned to the conflict. “We will not be able to ensure order and security if this flow continues to grow,” said Serguei Menialo, governor of North Ossetia, noting that the ban does not apply to tourists, residents and citizens of Georgia — one of the destinations most popular among the thousands who have tried to leave Russia. The move comes in addition to another announcement, this one by the Russian separatist enclave government of North Ossetia, which imposes restrictions on the passage of Russian vehicles trying to leave the country. Last week’s exodus caused airfares to sell out, so the Russians had to resort to land routes. Satellite images recorded kilometer lines of cars on Russian borders with Georgia and Mongolia. The Kremlin even admitted errors in the scope of the mobilization, but did not rule out the possibility of ordering the closing of borders to contain the diaspora.
