A young Russian man screams in pain in disturbing new footage after asking his friend to break his leg to dodge Vladimir Putin 's military draft.
It comes after the Russian president last week ordered the mobilisation of an additional 300,000 fighting-age men across the country for the war in Ukraine, leading to a rush of protests and forcing many to flee to neighbouring countries.
Others who are unable to leave have opted for reported acts of self-harm to avoid being called up, including one desperate man who made an extraordinary request for his pal to fracture his leg.
In the clip circulating online, the unidentified young person sits at the bottom of a set of stairs and places his feet on the steps while anxiously waiting for his his friend to carry out the deed.
