My friend went to meet her parents, arriving from Germany, and was stunned: the international airport “Borispol” was overflowing with young men. She was able to park her car three miles from the terminal and the airport’s parking lot and adjacent areas were clogged with cars and buses. These are her impressions:

“Well, friends, what can I say? Had an epiphany today when I visited the airport “Borispol”! Now I’m glad we have been warned about the mobilization ahead of time and given a specific date – January 20th. At the airport there are scores of the departing! People of all stripes, with backpacks, bags, suitcases. The main contingent is men between 20 and 40 years old. Most – to Moscow! Others – to Turkey, Montenegro, Poland. That is, wherever is cheaper or no visas required. For this thanks to the idiots [in power]: our children are leaving their country, but at least they are not going to kill their brothers. But they will still come back! But you fascist rats, have nowhere to run! Although, I am told, all the deputies and members of the government have personal planes and reserved charters on standby. I hope not everyone will get to them in time…”
