Soldier: I am the head of the local recruiting center.
Woman: Why are you bringing military writs?
Soldier: It's an order from above. I can't explain all the details but you can read about it on the internet
Soldier: When did you get the writs?
Very disgruntled woman: Yesterday evening.
Another Woman: This one we got recently.
Soldier: Yes, we're sending those to put the potential recruits under control.
Yet another woman: We don't need it. We don't need any war.
Multiple women chime in with the same thing at once about not wanting war.
Very disgruntled woman: We've been told that the police will handle those who refuse to sign the writs for mobilization. What does that mean?
Soldier: It's an official order for total mobilization.
Another woman: We've been told those fairy tales many times. They told us those who refuse to go to war will go to jail for 5 years.
Soldier: I ask you, did we take anyone to war so far?
Woman: When you take someone it will be too late to worry.
Another woman: We've never been on Maidan. We didn't touch anyone. We don't need it.
Very angry man gesturing: Take your recruit list and make sure no one will be taken to war.
Soldier - finally admitting the truth: They will take your sons anyway.
Same angry Man: Who will take them?
Soldier: The state
Same angry man: We don't give a damn about your country and your war!
Large group gathers writs and sets them on fire.
Background conversation: mostly untranslated but also containing We are sickened of the authorities.
More background conversation: The authorities flee like rats from a sinking ship, but they come here and take our sons and send them to death. They all made the mess and now they need us to clean it up.
Fire takes hold
Another woman: Those who wanted all this, let them go to war! We never needed this nor Maidan.
Cars stop, many more people including more men watch on the periphery.
Writs go up in ashes. Many still confront the soldier
