About 150 russian soldiers from Buryatia refused to fight in Ukraine and terminated the contract with the russian Ministry of Defense. This was reported on the air of the FreeDom telethon by head of the Free Buryatia Foundation Alexandra Garmazhapova.
"A plane with about 150 servicemen finally landed in Buryatia today. These are servicemen who terminated the contract with the Ministry of Defense", - Garmazhapova stated.
According to her, these soldiers were kept in the occupied territory of Ukraine after their wives appealed to them to return the men home.
The activist also told that her foundation received about 500 appeals from the military, who wanted to terminate the contract with the russian Defense Ministry.
As previously reported, only 37 people risked to "resettle" from the occupied regions of Ukraine to Buryatia.
