Russia dismisses 115 soldiers who refused to go to Ukraine

115 Russian soldiers were disqualified for refusing to fight in Ukraine, and they appealed this decision. On Wednesday, May 25, a military court confirmed their dismissals.

When it was time to pack up to take part in the attack on Ukraine, these 115 Russian soldiers refused to leave. They were dismissed from the army as a punishment, and they initially appealed this decision, which had just been confirmed by a military court.

According to the court’s press service, which was reported by Interfax, the persons in question are members of the National Guard, who refused to perform a mission connected with the “Moscow Special Operation” on Ukrainian territory.

The meeting was held behind closed doors

Also, to deliver its ruling, the court said it examined “necessary documents” and questioned officials of this National Guard, an internal security force distinct from the Russian military but also involved in operations in Ukraine.

Finally, the court rejected the appeal of these 115 soldiers, and at the same time confirmed their dismissal. According to a press release published on Wednesday, May 25, the court considered that they “arbitrarily refused to perform an official mission.”

The session was held behind closed doors to avoid revealing “military secrets”. The court did not specify the location of these soldiers in Russia. This case appears to be the first officially confirmed case of Russian soldiers who refused to participate in the offensive launched in Ukraine on February 24.
