Most of those who died in the so-called "special military operation" (SVO) are not russians by nationality, but representatives of national minorities.
Residents of non-russian subjects of the federation, such as Buryatia, Bashkiria, Tatarstan and Dagestan, experience ethnic inequality. Buryatia is the leader in the number of those who died in relation to the number of the population.

The soldiers killed in Ukraine are buried in this region almost daily. The lowest mortality rate in "SVO" is in Moscow and St. Petersburg. The risk of dying in Ukraine for a Tuvan is 100 times higher than for a resident of Moscow. Covert mobilization in the "non-russian" republics of the russian federation continues.
As previously reported in media, since russia has long had a noticeable lack of "cannon fodder" for the war in Ukraine, a so-called partial mobilization is being carried out. First and foremost mobilization affects male population from the most remote and economically underdeveloped regions of russia, such as: Buryatia, Bashkiria, Degestan, Tatarstan and Khakassia as well. While a much smaller number of people are recruited from such large cities as Moscow or St. Petersburg.
Such actions by the russian federation fall under paragraph II of the UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide ("any acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group").
In such a way, the russian leadership pursues a genocidal policy against poorly developed regions, while russia’s actions in Ukraine are “genocide” in full its scale.
