Quote: "Yesterday, conscripts who were forced to sign a [military service] contract or who had one signed on their behalf were withdrawn from the combat zone in Ukraine.
"However, as a result, only four members of a company of 100 survived".
Details: Narusova said that she had sent a request to Russia's Defence Ministry to confirm this information, but her request was denied: "A defence department that refuses to say whether the [information] is accurate or not? How can that be?"
She was interrupted and told that all evidence was provided by an "investigation by the Russian Federation".
