I thought this was SOP for a long while now for them?

No, really. I did. I just assumed that he'd be turning his prisons loose when recruiting got scarce, and just accepted the collateral damage on his own military as a result.

Puts more people in the fight, and saves him literally tens-of-dollars when they are killed and no longer in jail. Win/win.

But if they're already looking at criminals to fill out their ranks, they're in worse shape than we thought.

Yeah, they've been doing this for a decade or more.

Was only a matter of time.

Pretty soon Russian people are going to have their choice of dying at the front or fighting their own dictator

If they had any sense, they'd all promptly desert when they get to Ukraine.

It also allows Vlad to play nice with various Bratva families by canceling sentences of people who have donated enough to his "I need a new Gold Fountain" fund

Die from prison tuberculosis, or die from Ukrainian bullets.  Both options sound abysmal.

Careful there, Vlad. You need to conserve at least a few prisoners to satiate the Demogorgon.

A bunch of Russian convicts are standing in line at a Siberian recruiting center and the first convict approaches a table full of antique weapons.
Recruiter: Here is your Mosin-Nagant M1891 rifle, made in 1891, but with a little cleaning and a some oil, it will shoot...OK. Here is your practice round. Go to the next table for your uniform. NEXT!
A second convict walks up
Recruiter: Go to the next table for your uniform. NEXT!
Second convict: HEY!  Where is my rifle?
Recruiter: I gave it to HIM (pointing to the first recruit at the next table). You follow HIM. When HE dies, you take HIS gun. OK? Now, go to the next table for your uniform. NEXT!
A third convict walks up.
Recruiter: Here is your Nagant M1895 pistol, made in 1895, but with a little cleaning and a some oil, it will shoot...OK. Go to the next table for your uniform. NEXT!
Third Convict: I don't get a rifle?
Recruiter: No, you follow THAT GUY without a rifle. If the guy in front of HIM dies and HE does not pick up HIS rifle and fight, you shoot HIM in the head, take THAT OTHER GUY'S rifle, and give YOUR pistol to THIS GUY behind you in line. Now, go to the next table for your uniform. Wait! Don't forget your practice round. NEXT!
A fourth convict walks up.
Recruiter: Go to the next table for your uniform. NEXT!
Fourth convict: What, no gun?
Recruiter: {sigh} I gave it to THAT GUY. You follow HIM and if that first guy dies and the second guy doesn't pick up the first guy's rifle and fight, THAT GUY shoots the second guy in the head, takes the first guy's rifle, gives YOU HIS pistol, and fights. If HE dies, you take HIS rifle. Go to the next table for your uniform. NEXT!
A fifth convict walks up.
Recruiter: Here is your parachute. Go to the next table for your uniform. NEXT!
Fifth Convict: A parachute?  I thought this was the army.
Recruiter: You checked tank gunner on your application, nyet?
Fifth convict: Da.
Recruiter: Trust me, you're going to need it.  Go to the next table for your uniform. NEXT!

Imagine being a prisoner in Russia due to some bullshiat charge, then asked to sacrifice your life for the country. I bet they will surrender to Ukraine the first chance they get.
 
2022-08-05 10:43:02 AM  
Let me know when Pootey-Poot starts instituting Blocking Regiments.

Then he leaves the ranks of rich, jumped up, tin pot dictators & joins the ranks of the top tier genocidal maniacs like Stalin, Mao, Hitler, Pol Pot, etc.

Not with Uncle Vlad's gun to their heads.  They probably dug up some DShK 1938's to set up behind them and mow them down if they try to retreat, just like the good old days.
 
2022-08-05 11:01:46 AM  
This really a good idea (for them)?  Soooo a bunch of criminals in jails where they're abused/treated like crap by russian guards and then going to be given guns where they could turn on their jailers and then flee?  or are they just going to be fodder?  and then try to flee?

I mean, unless its just simple assault which then eff that I'll stay versus go to certain doom, etc but why stay and fight even if for your freedom if that freedom can be had by fleeing?

Sounds like a good way to pay one's debt to society if one actually commits to being a good soldier and doesn't pursue fresh crimes.

I've tried to watch this guy's videos, he never gives enough detail to justify the time committed.  I'll just read the wikipedia article myself rather than listen to him do it.

I would take that deal and the second I hit Ukraine I would keep heading west.
Soon Putin might have to start forcing people that will get angry about going to fight in his war instead of the poor dregs of Russia.

I wholeheartedly endorse putting any Russian soldiers on opiates or, hey, ketamine or propofol maybe?

Skip the amphetamines though.
