Russian mobilized soldiers from Novosibirsk Oblast are literally begging their relatives to save them from the front line in Ukraine, a video address shared on Twitter on Jan. 13 shows.

The group in the video says that they are in complete isolation because of "jammers", and the only way to contact someone is to record a video and send it to Luhansk.

"We are in the combat zone,” one of the conscripts says.

“We’re asking for help. Wives, sisters, anyone... We’ve been sent to the front line. Right to the front line. You leave there in two ways – either as cargo 200 (dead) or 300 (wounded). That's all.”

The Russians complain about the futility of their stay in Ukraine, as they are of no use in the fighting anyway.

"Guys sit in the trenches for months,” one of the men in the video notes.

“They just sit in the trenches for months. Waiting for a hit. We had four people ‘200’ on the first day. We can’t do anything here. We ask you to somehow... I don’t know. Write wherever you can.”
