Russia under pressure as thousands of military-age men have been leaving the country | DW News
The European Union’s Frontex border control agency said 66,000 Russians have entered the EU in the past week. This represents a 30% increase compared with the previous week, according to the agency. It said that most of the crossings were occurring at the Finnish and Estonian sections of the border. According to Frontex, most arrivals had visas, residence permits or dual citizenship. Frontex predicted that illegal border crossings could increase if the Kremlin decides to close Russia’s borders for potential conscripts. Thousands of military-age men have been leaving Russia since President Vladimir Putin announced a “partial” mobilization last week.
