Tens of thousands of Russian citizens are fleeing their country after Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a partial mobilization on 21 September.

Kazakhstan has become a major destination for Russian citizens who do not want to go to war in Ukraine.

Near the big cities of Kazakhstan, Petropavlovsk, Oral, Kostanay and Atyrau, long queues of Russian cars have formed. Due to the mass arrival of Russian citizens, rents in border towns have become more expensive and available housing has run out.

The Russian Federal Security Service (FDD) has sent an armored personnel carrier to the Verkhniylars border crossing at the Georgian border in case the Russian citizens gathered there attempt to break through.

The number of Russian citizens crossing the Russian border into Finland increased at a record pace during the week. Nearly 17,000 people entered Finland from Russia on Saturday and Sunday. Finland plans to close the border to Russian tourists, but it is not yet known when this will happen.
