The war that the Kremlin tried to disguise becomes a difficult reality for Russians

Sochi, Russia — On February 23, Russian tank driver Razil Malikov called his family and said he would return home soon. His troops’ military exercises in Crimea were just nearing the end. The next morning, Russia invaded Ukraine and has not been contacted by Marikov ever since. On Monday, Ukraine released a video of soldiers captured in his troops and apologized for participating in the invasion. “He didn’t expect them to be able to send him to Ukraine,” Marikov’s brother Rashid Alabelganov said on the phone.
