Really sad to this happening. The country at war is one thing, but forcing every single male aged 18-65 to fight against their will is sickening. Especially since:

1. You don't believe what you're doing. Russia is the aggressors here so going to kill Ukraine people and take over their cities makes no sense

2. You have a very high probability of dying and your life being cut short for no reason.

3. If you refuse, you'll either be jailed or beaten up until you're forced to join, or you mysteriously, "disappear."


This is literally Nazi Germany nonsense in the year 2022. If this goes on I can see other countries finally getting involved until Putin is put down

Can't we just send Rocky over there again? Or Rambo, even? Modern-Day Stallone is even more gassed-up and jacked than Ivan Drago was. Pretty sure he could handle it.

The last Gulag penal labour camp was closed down in 1960. Instead, this is why people in Vladimir Putin's Russia fear prison:

Terrible as it is...but in this case at least much of the inmates would at least be united in a shared cause, I guess.

If too many would-be draftees just end up in prison, now what? They're behind bars. Going to take them out and force them to go fight in Ukraine? Okay, so they play along and go over there and could, theoretically, immediately lay down their arms and again refuse to participate? Far easier said than done, but damn Putin would probably implode.

How would surrendering help them against HIMARS or a drone strike?

There's a reason I said "easier said than done," because modern warfare is too complex to be just that simple.

There was a stage in the war where that would've worked, and it did for many Russians, but that ship has sailed. It's mostly long-range fighting now until they're forced to withdraw ahead of Ukrainian forces, not to mention all the nutsos under orders to shoot anyone who tries to surrender or desert.

Okay Rambo or TMNT "if only" kind of mild jokes are one thing, but RP seems going a bit far with a subject like this...

Is it really to 65? Like, once you're 35 here in the states you can't even beg your way into the armed forces. But they're drafting 65 year olds in Russia?

I don't think it's 65 but it was certainly some unusually high age, yes. Under normal circumstances that wouldn't be the case but the existing troops have proven to be under-trained, under-equipped and understaffed, which is why the war was in a standstill for so long and is now turning in Ukraine's favor. The strategy basically seems to be that if Putin can draft virtually anyone, he can keep throwing troops into Ukraine until he wins, which doesn't make much sense given that hastily drafted men past their prime probably make far worse soldiers than the younger poorly trained he started with, nor does it magically make the equipment better.

It's 18 to 45, if I'm not mistaken.

Normally it would be 18 to 35.

Grammar and syntax way too clean, obviously a military-installed duplicate.

I'm onto you, "comrade".
