Putin’s order: Man sets self on fire in Russia

A yet to be identified Russian who is against an order by the nation’s president, Vladimir Putin, to conscript men into the war with Ukraine has set himself on fire.

It was gathered that the man went to the Ryazan bus station in the southeastern city of Ryazan and lit himself on fire.

This comes less than a week after President Vladimir Putin announced the “partial mobilization” of up to 300,000 reservists.

“At the Ryazan bus station, a man set himself on fire,” Russian news outlet YA62 shared.

“He shouted that he did not want to participate in a special operation in Ukraine.”

After the flames fizzled out, the man can be seen being escorted to an ambulance by police.

One eyewitness told YA62 that he escaped with minor injuries, while the magazine Novaya Gazeta wrote that he had burns on over 90 percent of his body.
