You mine like TFG and millions of other draft dodging little rich boys in America?
I am SHOCK!!!!!

This probably explains why so many are trying to get the hell out of Russia.  They know damn well that much like here in the US, the people at the top sure as hell won't go and fight.  And they also know how badly the whole debacle is going as well.

Why die for a madman?

That would never happen in the west though, right?

FFS...Russia has a pool of many millions to pull 300,000 conscripts.  What idiots actually believe in Western propaganda that anyone is running from Russia for the rest of their lives to avoid the minute chance of being called up and of that the 1 in 10 odds of actually going into battle?
 
2022-09-22 6:56:49 AM  
The Russian elite can't be spared to fight in Ukraine. They're already locked into a deadly war of attrition against their traditional enemies: open windows and boating accidents.
 
2022-09-22 6:57:03 AM  
I'm sure that's going to go over well with the people they're trying to draft and send to the front with zero training.
 
2022-09-22 6:57:36 AM  
They probably have bone spurs

I don't know if that's killed any of them yet, but being stuck at home with their whining entitled families is bound to cause murders and suicides eventually.

Yep. All these spoiled spawns of oligarchs better hope their parents do not displease the Pootinatior, or they'll get to die in the mud with their less fortunate countrymen

No, those were all sold out after about 5 minutes of pooties' speech finishing up.

At the very least these threads are good for marking the obvious tankies in our midst.

In that case they'd have their own private jets and wouldn't need a ticket.
 
2022-09-22 7:18:53 AM  
I wonder if the general public, especially families who have had heir kids summoned to go get mulched in Ukraine, will say anything about this.

I'd risk getting gulag'd if my son were to get rounded up like that, just to go get sent directly to fight a US backed murder machine.

I keep saying, all it would take is some 20 year old kid standing guard someplace to hose pootie off this mortal coil with his AK and this would all be over. He would probably die, but it would save soo many lives, russian and ukrainian.

Son of senior official now to discover that there's also a "fall down open elevator shaft onto 10 bullets and 15 stab wounds" for free card, too.

What idiot would believe that Putin is really going to only pull 300,000 conscripts?

Eligible men fleeing Russia, is not Western propaganda.

You're all going to have to speak up; I can't hear you over the DJ's soundsystem blasting OutKast's "Hey Ya!" and REM's "The One I Love" at this wedding reception.

And the people running probably realize that Putin is pulling out and oldie by following in Stalin's footsteps.  That is, sending tons of cannon fodder in the hopes the other side runs out of ammo and you can counter-attack.

I wonder how long before they start up the NOT ONE STEP BACK thing again. And sharing a rifle and an extra clip of ammo between 3 guys.

Party charter flights with all the drugs, caviar, and sex with friends. Invite, not ticket, if we're being pedantic. I'm not trying to be a dick to you, personally. I'm just saying what I'd do if I had that generational wealth and no conscience.

It hasn't happened in most countries, Russia included, since WWII. Putin's hiatler cosplay is completely out of control.

Not to mention the claim that Russia has a giant pool of men to draw from is bullshiat. 

Russia is even more demographically farked than the west and every man they pull out of the economy to go fight a war is another drop in productivity. They already had a massive brain drain problem, soon they're going to be running low on idiots.

His own "trusted advisors" and cabinet members cant get within 30 feet of him, after being strip searched.  Anyone with a weapon within half a mile of Putin probably has a wife and children "under the care" of the party.
 
2022-09-22 7:39:47 AM  
This is similar to what happened in the US during the Vietnam War.  People with connections could avoid service, especially combat, while those without were drafted. Putin is doing the same thing by trying to avoid conscripting the upper and middle classes, university students, etc.. to avoid creating opposition to the war. Of course, demonstrations like those in the US during the Vietnam War are highly unlikely to be allowed in Russia.

I sometimes get my timelines confused; you mean the first civil war or the second one?
