Amusing video. It came from a Russian Telegram channel that later deleted it. Apparently, the men were promised leave but never got it. They were also cold and hungry. So they left. No real resistance from the guards.

Mobilised Russian soldiers preparing for the war in Ukraine appear to have enough poor equipment and training as a mass walkout is caught on camera in Kazan, southwest Russia. The footage shows uniformed conscripts marching toward a guarded gate and demanding to be let through.

After a short scuffle, the men force open the gate and march out.

The Visegrád 24 Twitter account shared the video with the caption: "Mutiny in a military base in the Russian city of Kazan.

"Partially mobilized men had enough of the treatment and poor equipment, and decided to head back home.

Guards tried to stop them but were outnumbered.
