Let me get this straight... you recruited a hundred guys from Central Africa, where the current temperature is 25c and dumped them into Ukraine where the current temperature is -1c and you're wondering why they went poof?

Hint: It wasn't the Ukrainians.  They farkin' froze to death... and frankly, good riddance.

Putting morality and ethics on pause for a moment, what was the utility of sending these men from Africa to Ukraine. They could not possibly have made any positive contribution to Russian war effort and were just a drain on their logistics even if they just got plane ride.

In Finnish language there is an expression that roughly translates as: "Doing it like a russian" It  means farking things up due to mixture of ignorance, apathy and incompetence.

Cannon fodder that's experienced in "Do whatever the fark evil shiat you want no one's gonna care" warfare - and individuals from an organization that you already own.  Sometimes you want vaguely technically plausibly deniable troops to do serious assholery just so you can go, "Africans?  Who?  This is Russia how would we know??"  The fact that they're disposable as hell is a huge bonus from the that POV as well

Russia caught a few Western fighters and was ready to execute them as "mercenaries". While entire chunks of their frontline are manned by mercenaries, prisoners, Chechens, Syrians, Iranians and whatever other dregs they can round up to be cannon fodder. Obviously Russia's capacity for hypocrisy is still 100%.

Russia has a long history of fighting wars by throwing men into the meat grinder until the other side gets tired of fighting or runs out of people. Putin is continuing this tradition.

What is the journalists intent here?  A bunch of paid mercenaries agreed to fight for money and when Russia ran out of money they complain?  To whom?  They likely participated in mass killings and kidnapping of Ukrainian children into Russia.  Freezing to death would be kind.

As an example, we have troops in Djibouti right now.

https://www.armytimes.com/news/your-army/2022/01/06/us-soldiers-help-fix-the-only-well-in-djiboutian-village/
https://www.militarytimes.com/flashpoints/2018/05/06/china-denies-using-lasers-on-us-aircraft-in-djibouti/

A quick google search on US, Russian, and Chinese military activities in Africa quickly shows that each is acting similar to a colonizer in Africa. Each deems its' own business activities as investments, partnerships, and relationship building. Each views the activities of the other two as aggressively pursuing strategic objectives. None of them give a damn about ordinary people living in the African nations that they are present in.

Far left papers with sources from China. Sounds legit.

I didn't say that we didn't fark around in there just really and most of these "bases" are in places like Somalia where they are mostly providing training. I'm sure there are some black ops shiat but China has its thumb up Africa's butt way deeper.

ive traveled a fair amount and ive heard very very few positives about russia.  ive had people go on and on about places that will blow your mind - India, Ethiopia, Turkey - but russia is almost without exception described as bleak, gray, unfriendly.   one guy described it as 'feral'

basically all of the positives revolved around how beautiful the women are.

/ymmv
// Turkey blew my mind, including the women
 
2022-11-28 9:40:51 AM  
"African"  is a word used by people of sub-saharan descent who don't live on the African continent.   If the Russians or the Chinese are involved it's just an invitation by some local warlord for Colonization 2.0. Of course, that's nearly a universal recipe for colonization.

You have two choices, stand back and watch the slaughter or find yourself as the colonizer, needed by many but hated by others.  That was what we did in Afghanistan.

Star Trek had the Frank Gorshin Black/White episode where Kirk didn't notice the difference, but too many parts of Africa still have hatred based on something that even a Black person from America wouldn't see.
