Russia is getting more and more desperate for recruits to recoup its staggering losses in its war against Ukraine, adviser to Ukraine’s Interior Ministry Anton Herashchenko said in a Telegram post on July 13.

Herashchenko reposted a video address of Yuri Negovora – head of a military enlistment office in Russia’s Tver Oblast – pleading with his fellow Russians to volunteer to fight in Ukraine.

In the video address Negovora urges Russian citizens to “defend the motherland” – by deploying to a foreign country – and promises very attractive salaries.

“We’re looking for people under 50, who were previously conscripted into service; all you need is good health and the will (to fight),” Negovora said in his address, supposedly looking to fulfill enlistment quotas.
