Russian authorities wanted to send soldiers who survived in Makiivka to offensive

The Russian authorities have not yet compiled lists of the wounded and killed in the attack on the deployment base of the mobilised Russian servicemen in Makiivka, Donetsk Oblast. At the same time, they want to get rid of the survivors, and even tried sending them to the front lines.

Details: The wife of one of the Russians mobilised from Samara Oblast, who was wounded after the attack on Makiivka, said that she does not know where her husband is.


"There is no information on which hospital my husband is being taken to. In any case, they will not tell you where they are being taken. It is already the third day, many women are writing and calling me, they also have no news, it is, frankly, very stressful. It is obvious that their phones broke, someone was hospitalised, lost their memory… But at least make simple f**king lists! Who is alive, who is dead, who is in hospital," she complained about the inaction of Russian authorities.

The woman said that they wanted to send the surviving soldiers "to the offensive", but "those who are smarter got together with their superiors and went in another direction, to some kind of shelter."

"I think that they can easily be sent anywhere to cover up this whole event [investigation into the causes of the mass killing of the occupiers – ed.]," she said.

Anastasia Kashevarova, Russian pro-war commentator, also reported on Telegram that "[Russian authorities – ed.] want to send to the front line or somewhere else out of sight" the Russians who survived the attack on Makiivka vocational school No. 19. According to Kashevarova, "approximately 216 people" survived.

Later, Kashevarova wrote that the Russian soldiers were left in where they were after "a fuss was made".

Another relative of a mobilised soldier from the Samara Oblast told iStories that [Russian authorities – ed.] "want to write [surviving soldiers – ed.] off as unnecessary witnesses".

"A commission  is going there, and we are afraid that they may be sent somewhere or hidden," she said.
