'Your own will shoot you': Russia's defensive lines led by convicts, intercepted call show


A leaked phone call from a Russian soldier has revealed the dire state of Russia’s frontline defenses in Ukraine. During a call home, the soldier described convicts being used to defend positions while they are guarded by troops in the second line, who will “shoot any who run back.”

The soldier said: “So, the boys called your damn committee.

“They said, we’re not in Ukraine, can you believe this? We’re ‘on exercises.'”

The female interlocutor said: “Damn, yes, we know. But we wrote to all departments, no one cares!”

He said: “They didn’t send you the corpses either, and unlikely to send in the nearest future.”

She asked: “Didn’t send what?”

The soldier said: “The dead, And there’s loads of them: both from Lebedyansky [District], and from Lipetsk.”

The interlocutor cut in: “Damn. Igoryok phones, he said you have nothing to eat.”

He explained: “There isn’t, I agree, there’s no food at all. Those who have not money, eat the f*cking sprouted grain from fields.”

Russia attacked Ukrainian cities with drones on Monday, killing at least four people in an apartment building in downtown Kyiv during morning rush hour, and targeted infrastructure across the country in the second wave of air strikes in a week.

Ukrainian soldiers fired into the air trying to shoot down the drones after blasts rocked central Kyiv.

An anti-aircraft rocket could be seen streaking into the morning sky, followed by an explosion and orange flames, as residents raced for shelter.

A pregnant woman was among four people killed in the attack on the residential building, Kyiv mayor Vitali Klitschko said.
