What is happening in Russia right now?

"Now panic has started, many young people are fleeing the country.

They travel by car.

Those who are between 20 and 35 years old, this is the dangerous age, those who were in the army or are subject to mobilization go to other countries, mainly to Georgia," Dmitriy Kochanovski told bTV.

"Whoever has the opportunity to leave Russia leaves, but not all EU countries accept them.

Poland, Estonia and Lithuania do not accept, even with Schengen visas.

therefore flights are closed, there are no direct flights even to Bulgaria.

That's why they travel through Turkey.

Now the main flow is through Istanbul," the oppositionist said.

According to him, many people are afraid of going to prison.

They understand that as soon as they get a summons, they have to show up.

"If a person signs this summons, he must appear and it will be difficult for him to escape."

This is mass fear and panic," added Kochanovski.
