In the morning of September 21, Putin gave a speech that had the role of mobilizing the population to arms. In other words, Putin announced the partial mobilization and activation of citizens in reserve, that is, those who have completed a training course.

Immediately after this announcement, Russian citizens rushed to airline websites and bought tickets to the few destinations they can still fly to. In this context, many flights are sold out or the few remaining available seats ended up costing as much as $10. Russians can still travel to destinations in the United Arab Emirates, Turkey, China or neighboring countries.

By noon, Moscow time, direct flights from the Russian capital to Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan no longer appeared on the website, it announces hotnews.

But the Kremlin authorities have ordered that airline operators no longer sell tickets to men between the ages of 18 and 65, but only to those with a dispensation from the Ministry of Defense. The situation is not calmer on the railway either. Hundreds of thousands of men want to buy tickets to flee their villages. Those who have more money, fly from Russia to countries such as Turkey, Egypt and Thailand to stay there during the mobilization period.

Almost 300.000 reservists are currently affected by this call for mobilization, said the Russian Minister of Defense, Sergei Șoigu. In his speech to the nation, Vladimir Putin specified that the mobilization of these civil forces is effective starting today, informs Digi24.
