New Delhi, 23 September 2022

As per news report of BBC, queues have formed at border crossings since President Vladimir Putin announced a partial military mobilisation on Wednesday, which could see 300,000 people summoned to fight. The Kremlin says reports of fighting-age men fleeing are exaggerated. But on the border with Georgia, miles-long queues of vehicles have formed including men trying to escape the war. Some of those heading into the neighbouring country have used bicycles to bypass lines of cars and evade a ban on crossing on foot.
