Several Telegram channels in Russia said on November 20 that a 23-year-old Muscovite shot himself to death after he received a subpoena for military service.

The reports say the man texted his friends to say he had received the subpoena but did not want to join the army.

According to the report, he was ordered to come to the recruitment office on November 21.

Hundreds of thousands of Russian men have fled Russia to avoid the Moscow-launched war in Ukraine since last year.
