As Russia orders mobilization and recruits young people, an escape procession continues at the border.
There are also complaints from within Russia that this conscription was biased towards rural areas or ethnic minorities.
Reporter Kang Seong-woong reports.
This is the border road from Russia to Kazakhstan.
In addition to the large trucks that I normally travel, there are long lines of cars in the inner lane.
After the mobilization order was issued, vehicles trying to leave Russia continue to pour in.

An escape procession continues on the border with Georgia in the south of Russia.
As people without military experience and even college students began to conscript, anxiety grew.

You can also see people rushing out of the border with only important things on their bikes.
The reason I am leaving Russia is that I cannot risk my life in an unjustified war.

In the midst of this, the recruitment of reserve forces from various parts of Russia continues.
However, even those who are enlisting in the military are not sure about this war.

The New York Times newspaper reported that the conscripted population was concentrated in rural areas and remote areas, creating resistance.
It is trying to dispel the anti-war public opinion in the big city, but some ethnic minorities and local opposition are being detected.
