Russian National Guard officers refuse to go to war in Ukraine, reports Pavel Chikov, head of the international human rights organization Agora.
“After it became known that 12 Cuban National Guard soldiers refused to go to Ukraine and leave them. We have received other similar stories. Crimea, Novgorod, Omsk, Stavropol,” Chikov listed on the Telegram, adding that Representatives who do not want to go to war in Ukraine have sought the help of lawyers.
Chikov promises that the “Agora” will help get back the work of officers who refused to go to war in Ukraine.
On February 25, the commander of the OMON operative regiment of the Krasnodar region of the Russian National Guard and 11 militants refused to comply with the order of the command of the division to cross the Russian border and enter the territory of Ukraine.
This OMON unit has been located in the Russian-occupied Crimean peninsula since February 6, to which Zaslon-2022 was sent for training. After the refusal, the soldiers were sent to Krasnodar, an investigation was launched against them and they were dismissed.
Soldiers of the National Guard believe that they have been retired unreasonably, therefore they have filed a lawsuit to reinstate them. The Cranodar court has accepted the action.
