Video shows a kilometer-long mass grave of Russian soldiers | residence

videoBelarusian news channel NEXTA posted a video on Twitter showing a kilometer long mass grave of Russian soldiers. The photos are said to have been taken in the Luhansk region of eastern Ukraine. Above the video is the caption: “Putin has liberated #Luhansk from invaders.” It is not clear when the photos were taken exactly.

In the video, a vehicle passes through a mile-long mass grave. The tombs were decorated with flags, flowers and pictures of fallen soldiers.

In June, Russia claimed it had “liberated” 97 percent of Luhansk, bringing the Kremlin closer to its goal of conquering all of Ukraine’s industrial heartland. Earlier this fall, Russia annexed the city of Luhansk after illegal referendums.

Dissatisfaction

However, the Russian offensive in the eastern Ukrainian region is not without fighting. For example, last week it was announced that about thirty soldiers demanded that they be returned to Russia. Their leaders are said to have left the men on the front lines. Pictures appeared last Friday showing Russian soldiers retreating during an attack in the Ukrainian region Kherson.

It is almost impossible to keep up with reports of dissatisfaction among Russian conscripts. Recruits find it unacceptable to be sent to Ukraine as “cannon fodder” without any military training. In addition, their families have not yet seen the 300,000 rubles (about 4,900 euros) that the men will receive for their military service.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky also criticized in his speech last night that his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, “continues to send soldiers and mercenaries to their deaths.”
