War in Ukraine: Syrians agree to fight for Russia

Russia says it has recruited about 16,000 recruits from the Middle East to fight in Ukraine.

Social media in Syria is flooded with requests from people to join Russian forces in exchange for up to $7,000 for deployment.

One former Syrian regime soldier who has been offered thousands of dollars to fight in the war told BBC News Arabic that his country’s shattered economy means hundreds of Syrians are standing up for their positions.
