So, it begins. Moscow, yet again putting the burden on the ethnic minorities and outer regions.

there's already been a shooting & a firebombing at a couple of these recruitment centres - more to come I’m sure

It is going to be a long and troubled winter, get ready for high fuel and food prices and low supply.

Wishful thinking on your part (& Putin’s)

if you did some research, you’d know that Europe’s gas reserves are nearing 90% capacity, which should be enough to see them through the winter

Now think 300,000 more in Russia's army

300,000 men who are under trained, under equipped & unmotivated.

causing untold suffering for Ukrainians on both sides.

yes, this had nothing to do with Putin’s invasion did it.

you do know all this suffering would stop if Putin swallowed his pride & withdrew his forces.

But you don’t want that do you ?

More than doubling your fighting force is a sign of weakness? Really? 

yes

It’s exceedingly odd that you cant.

one-eyed anti-west crowd will never see it - odd indeed

putin decides to stop playing games

oh, so these six months, he’s been playing games !? what a great strategist he is.

He's not likely to just give up.

no, he’ll suffer sudden heart failure

@desert

your fear is justified.

Behind the scenes, The Biden Administration has allegedly been sending private messages to Moscow about the 'grave consequences' of using nuclear weapons.

Putin has repeatedly threatened using nuclear weapons & he has blinked every time. We have to hope he keeps on blinking

In a month or so, no one but loyal trolls & a few here will remember These ‘referendums’.

They will be forgotten, & the areas will be reclaimed by Ukraine.

Chechens are volunteering in droves for the Russian military.

Chechens are being forced to volunteer

they make excellent fighters 

no, they make excellent TikTokers

It took less than a single generation for Putin to turn the Chechens from bitter enemies to willing to die for Russia loyalists.

it took a lot of money from Putin

There are videos of the enlistment centers from all over Russia

not as many as the number of videos showing Russians fleeing the country, or protesting in the streets.

Young guys flooding into the enlistment centers. 

Young guys being forced into the enlistment centers. 

In Chechnya they said the already ambitious enlistment goals were filled to 254%.

thanks to shotgun tactics by the brave TikTok warriors

One must draw the conclusion that the morale is very high all over Russia.

yes, that would explain the protests & the 10’s of 1000’s of people fleeing the country

Big day for all Russian people

No ! most Russian people , especially the men, are more worried about how to avoid conscription.

top two google searches currently are - ‘how to get out of Russia’ & ‘how to break an arm’

Russian state TV has boasted that families of soldiers killed in Ukraine can buy a brand new Lada car with the compensation in a bid to boost its conscript numbers.

Kremlin-backed Rossiya 1 showed how one set of parents decided to splash out with the 'coffin money' on a white saloon car from the state-run manufacturers.

Alexei Malov, 31, died in February just three days into the invasion but his mother and father have now received the compensation, with the Kremlin offering up to £105,000 for each dead soldier.

Malov's father then said: 'In memory of our son we bought a nice new car.'

aww !

@bjorn

if the North Koreans & Chinese behaved themselves & stopped threatening other countries, there wouldn’t be a need for ships like this.

And I think you overestimate these country’s ability to sink it.

Thanks for ensuring the people of Donbass, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson can have a democratic choice. 

yes, you can’t beat a democratic election at the barrel of a gun - it’s the Russian way.

Anyone who has visited Crimea will be able to tell you that Crimea is very Russian.

coming from a person who has never visited Crimea

surprising. 97% 

knew 90%+

unsurprisingly, 97% of people knew the result before the voting began.

Posted in: Russia starts annexation vote in parts of Ukraine See in context

The ‘real’ Russians in Crimea who ‘really’ voted to join Russia are now being rounded up & being forcibly conscripted to join the Russian army.

So the laugh is now on them.

Also, I wonder if the people voting in this sham referendum know that if they do join Russia, they may then be the target of a Russian nuclear attack.

Im sure that is not on the voting form.

Posted in: Russia starts annexation vote in parts of Ukraine See in context

97% may be a little exaggerated but not by much.

I think you have exaggerated a lot.

when you have soldiers pointing machine guns at you while you are voting is not exactly a ‘fair election’ is it.

Legalise it & tax it.

A twofold effect - it cuts out the criminal aspect & increases the government coffers

and Russia is getting stronger.

ok, Russia has lost 10’s of 1000’s of men, 1000’s of pieces of military hardware, they have a huge brain drain problem, their economy is tanking, people are protesting & now most of their men are doing anything they can to escape being drafted.

now which part of Russia is getting stronger ?

What's particularly cynical is the position of states that are pumping Ukraine full of weapons and training their soldiers," 

what’s particularly hypocritical is that Russia did exactly the same with North Korea & north Vietnam
