A number of telegram channels and online media have reported that a new “service” can be found on the Avito platform from registered users - it is offered to “painlessly” and “inexpensively” break a hand. Prices from 1500 rubles and above. A screenshot of the announcement is attached to these publications.

Novye Izvestia went to Avito and tried to find a specific ad from the screenshot or other similar ads.

In the line of the search query, the phrases are indeed displayed: “I will break your arm inexpensively”, “I will break your arm without pain”, etc.

However, after pressing the "enter" button for these queries, no such ad appears. Only ads from the series are offered: “Manicure and pedicure in 4 hands”, “Handy workers of all trades”, “Jack of all trades” and so on.

Perhaps the system simply recorded requests from platform users and they were saved in the search memory, or the Avito service has already deleted all such ads.

This is also reported by the website of the Amitel IA network media from the Altai Territory: “Reports appeared on social networks that there were sentences on private ad sites “I’ll break my arm inexpensively” or “I’ll break my arm, it doesn’t hurt”.

On the morning of September 26, the editors of in the Altai Territory and the Altai Republic did not find anything of the kind (even in similar interpretations of the request) in the ads on Avito or on Yulia.

No one has submitted such announcements to support dishonest citizens in our area, and if there were any earlier, they were promptly removed by site admins.”

Meanwhile, the same site notes:

“According to Google. Trends”, in the 20th of September, interest in the request “break an arm” sharply increased in Russia. Perhaps it was caused by the announcement of partial mobilization and someone was trying in a similar way to find an unfair loophole to delay the draft from the reserve.


It should be noted that the demand for the service grew rapidly on September 21, after the announcement of partial mobilization. The search query "how to break a hand" has grown from almost zero to a hundred.

After today's (at the time of publication to become "Amitel" - editor's note) statement by Vladimir Putin, most often Russians are interested in two questions: "how to leave the country" (sometimes there is a variation "how to leave the country without money") and "how to avoid mobilization).
