Meduza, an independent Russian media outlet, reported that the video had been allegedly filmed in Russia’s Belgorod Oblast.  

However, it does not indicate when or where it was filmed. 

The video shows two soldiers being called out by their commander and an investigator telling them that criminal cases have been opened against them. The footage also shows them being rudely arrested by military police and placed in a police van. 

These are reportedly the first criminal cases against mobilized soldiers for refusing to fight against Ukraine. They face up to 3 years in prison.
