‘Scared’ Russian soldiers are looking for Ukrainian bullets to shoot themselves in the legs “go to hospital” and then head back home, according to local media.
Russian soldiers have said that there are “corpses everywhere” and morale has collapsed amongst Vladimir Putin’s troops as they are being forced to shoot dead innocent civilians.
A reconnaissance officer, Vladimir, told an international media briefing, “I want to tell our commander-in-chief to stop terror acts in Ukraine because when we come back we’ll rise against him.”
Another officer at the same event told Putin, “You won’t hide this for long.
“There are many like us here. Sooner or later, we’ll come home.”

Kremlin sources say ‘everyone is f**ing stunned’ over ‘full scale war’ and a ‘ceasefire’ with Ukraine is ‘top priority’
A conversation which was intercepted between soldiers by Belarusian media source NEXTA, a Russian said, “They’ve been shooting at us for 14 days. We’re scared.
“We’re stealing food, breaking into houses. We’re killing civilians.
“Russian officers shoot themselves in the legs to go home. There are corpses everywhere.”
Another soldier said troops are “looking for Ukrainian ammunition in order to shoot themselves in the legs and go to hospital.”
Russian troops are doing this because if they desert the army under Putin’s orders the soldiers will either be executed or given harsh punishments.
One Russian fighter pilot, Maxim, became emotional while speaking about the suffering civilians have had to endure since his country’s invasion.
He told CNN, “I don’t know, what can justify, f***, the tears of a child, or even worse, the deaths of innocent people, children.”
The soldiers laid the blame at the feet of Russian commanders for “horrifying” crimes against “peaceful Ukrainian civilians” – and warned “you cannot forgive such things”.
And CNN reported another soldier saying: “Russian President Vladimir Putin has given orders to commit crimes.
“It’s not just to demilitarize Ukraine or defeat the Armed Forces of Ukraine, but now cities of peaceful civilians are being destroyed.
“The crimes that we committed; we all will be judged.”
The prisoners of war said they were deceived by their leader, adding, “We want to stop, we want to tell the truth to the whole world.
“Children are dying for nothing. Putin is a liar.
“I want to go home, I don’t want to be here, I am ashamed, forgive me,” one soldier told a packed press conference.
“Comrade president of Russia, you are lying – at your whim you commit such crimes here.
“Putin… you are wrong, you are guilty. I ask to end all of this. Please give the order to all servicemen to return home.”
