    130 women, i know that sounds small but cmon its pretty fucking ballsy in Chechnya.

    Saw a video of men in Dagestan giving abuse to the military commissar who had come to draft people. The guy was going 'you are fighting for the future' and these lads were like 'what future, look around here lmao'.

    *stokes Islamic insurgency*

    Hopefully Snowden and Seagal get drafted.

    Soo...we can safely say this mobilization is not very popular. Bit of a shame that it needed to come home for more resistance but still.

    i mean this shit : https://twitter.com/mediazzzona/stat...07342496251904 taking kids out of university and conscripting really reminds me of when Iran used kids to clear minefields by having them walk into them. What realistically do they think the combat effectiveness of these people is going to be.

    Hasn't the Russian military already had issues with disgruntled soldiers fragging commanding officers? Do...they expect that morale will improve when a bunch of scared, angry, untrained soldiers get up to the front?

    yea theres gonna be alot of problems, alot of ethnic groups in russia fucking hate eachother as well lol.

    This is clearly not partial mobilization tho, its full mobilization. Give Ukraine more ammo now imo. We can literally solve the Russian agression problem for 2 generations, mowing the grass Israeli style.

    Apparently every flight out of Russia is packed, and they are sold out for 3 months from all the people fleeing.

    hopefully shalckler is doing his patriotic duty. And hopefully that Ukranian poster who went to fight (was it Gaaz?) is a good shot.

    I'm sure on day 5 of the 3 day war Shalckler accidentally broke his knee cap with a hammer while trying to hang a picture. Dudes too skeezy to not try and weasel out of going. He'll be walking up to the recruitment office like the crutches guy in There's Something about Mary.

    IIRC, he said he was a some type of sysadmin. Think that's one of the specialties they're really struggling with retaining, so I'm guessing he'll be exempted.

    Shoigu lies about everything so it was doubtful he was telling the truth about mobilisation numbers to start with. The mobilisation bill had a censored part for the public version which Kremlin insiders say says they are mobilising 1 million men.

    https://mobile.twitter.com/tadeuszgi...phSwJhMp4BjOHA

    Russia can't train 300k let alone 1 million. They have just 1 training facility in the entire country. The US has 10 and trains 150k a year.

    So looks like Putin aims to go all Zapp Branigan and throw endless waves of untrained men at Ukraine in a desperate attempt to break them.

    They don't care. They still operate with WWII era and prior tactics in mind. Just throw more meat into the grinder. The quality and equipment of the meat is inconsequential.

    If you look, you can see the straw man walking a red herring up a slippery slope coming to join this conversation.

    But Shoigu promised students wouldn't be mobilised. Oh, these were from an ethnic minority.
