New Delhi: The person in charge of Vladimir Putin’s failed mobilization effort in Ukraine has been found dead under “suspicious” circumstances.

Lt. Col. Roman Malyk, a military commander, was found dead at his residence in a hamlet in the Primorsky region of Russia. He was 49 years old.

According to some reports, he was hanged to death. Police in Russia have started a murder investigation but have not ruled out suicide as the cause of death.

String of assaults on mobilization offices

After a string of assaults on mobilization offices across Russia, his “suspicious” death happened. As resentment over conscription develops, as many as 70 offices have been attacked with Molotov cocktails.

Fury over mobilization authorities’ alleged rule-breaking forced recruitment of men with little to no training is growing.

Armed officers robbing men

Teams of armed enlistment officers working with the police have been robbing men in offices, on the street, and in subway trains in Russian cities.

In response to Putin’s demand that Russia locate an additional 80,000 men to bring the overall number of recruits for the initial stage of enrollment to 300,000, Russia today increased security for mobilisation teams and enlistment offices.

Numerous men flee to other nations

National guardsmen will defend them, according to MP Alexander Khinshtein. Numerous men have fled to other countries as a result of the mobilisation, protesting Putin by voting with their feet.
