Long lines at russia's border with georgia over military draft fears

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Long Lines at Russia’s Border With Georgia Over Military Draft Fears” – below is their description.

Tens of thousands of Russians are trying to leave the country as fears grow they might be summoned for military service.

Putin ordered a partial mobilization of 300,000 troops to bolster the Ukraine war effort last week.

Long traffic queues persisted at the Georgian border on Tuesday as fears ran high that the Kremlin might close the country’s exit points to men of fighting age.

The online service Yandex Maps showed a 15-kilometer-long (9.3-mile-long) traffic jam on a road in Russia’s region of North Ossetia that leads up to the border with Georgia.

Russian officials declared plans to set up a military recruitment office right on the border with Georgia, one of the main routes of the exodus.
