Middle-Aged Drunkards and the Dead Drafted in Putin’s Mobilization Army

The men getting drafted into the Russian military under atrocious dictator Vladimir Putin’s orders appear to be overwhelmingly middle-aged, many of them heavy drinkers with severe discipline deficiencies.

To top it all off, Russia’s authorities have even been trying to “recruit the dead,” as some who are being summoned have perished in the coronavirus pandemic.

War Escalation and Desperation

Earlier this week, Russia’s mass murdering president announced a “partial” mobilization of the country’s military-aged males.

Of course, it quickly became clear there was nothing “partial” about the mobilization, with practically everybody in danger of getting summoned – except for the relatives of regime cronies.

Russia’s original invasion force of some 200,000 troops is now mostly gone. The number of those who have at some point refused to fight remains unclear, but is believed to be very significant.

In its desperation amid the manpower losses, the Moscow regime has been recruiting violent prison inmates and even mental patients.

The Russian dictator had been unwilling for a long time to declare mobilization, fearing it could spark an armed revolution. The fact he now chose to up the ante is seen as a sign of escalation and desperation over the war.

Trying to Mobilize COVID-19 Pandemic Victims

The mobilization order has caused thousands and thousands of young Russian men to flee the country by air and land to neighboring countries – such as Finland, Belarus, Georgia, Turkey, Armenia, Mongolia and Kazakhstan.

One report said that more than 6,400 Russian men made it to Finland on the first day after the mobilization order, while many are using scooters and bicycles to pass the car lines at border crossings.

For the time being, Russia has not closed off its borders to military-age males, but those trying to leave are still getting interrogated by intelligence agents. Many are reportedly turned down and turned back.

Those who are fleeing appear to be mostly in their 20s. Russian authorities have been most successful in mobilizing men in their late 30s and 40s.

These are middle-aged individuals with families, children, and mortgages who practically have no way of fleeing abroad, and/or are more easily pressured under fear of prosecution.

At the same time, however, numerous videos have emerged on social media of new Russian conscripts getting drunk at rallying points, getting in drunken fights, or passing out on the ground.

In some videos of the mobilized drunkards, it seems as though they are getting “wasted” out of desperation, while others are more upbeat and “celebratory.”

Footage also shows cases of military commanders trying to coral the undisciplined and drunken crowds onto buses and airplanes.

A number of cases have been reported in which the Russian regime tried to summon Russian men who have already passed away.
