Partial mobilization triggered 'exodus' in Russia - UK

According to the latest intelligence report, released by the United Kingdom's Ministry of Defense on Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin's orders on partial mobilization have led to a "considerable exodus" in the country.

"Whilst exact numbers are unclear, [the exodus] likely exceeds the size of the total invasion force Russia fielded in February 2022," the Ministry shared. Among those leaving, the well-educated and better-off individuals make up the biggest chunk.

Officials noted that in combination with the mobilized reservists, "the domestic economic impact of reduced availability of labor and the acceleration of ‘brain drain’ is likely to become increasingly significant."
