Moreover, military commissars in the temporarily occupied territory of Crimea received an order to prioritize the recruitment of Crimean Tatars into the ranks of the Russian occupation troops. They are being specially assigned to combat units, in order to participate in zones with the most intense fighting.

In the Saky district alone, 21 Crimean Tatars were mobilized on Sept. 26.

Earlier, the Dept. One Telegram channel reported that Russian conscripts are not given any exercises, medical examinations, or training before being shipped off to the front.

Russian investigative media outlet iStories also discovered that Russian conscripts mobilized in Belgorod Oblast were sent to the battlefield in Svatove, Luhansk Oblast, without any prior training.
