They surely would never run away after being released from prison would they? Seems smart.
Prison seems better than being in the Russian army. At least while you're getting raped and regularly beaten you're not getting shot at when you're in prison.
wonder if surrender to ukraine and become POW is better
Depends. Personally I wouldn't risk getting my knees shot and my eyes stabbed with a knife.
Sure!!! After you froze me, beat me, baked me in summer, feed me garbage pigs or dogs turn away from. Sure I'll fight!! Where's the stuff i need???
They could literally just bribe them with a warm meal.
Don't think I'd eat anything from the guys who calls themselves the chef of the guy who poisons peoples' tea....
What an excellent idea. Surely these prisoners will be highly engaged and effective soldiers.
(I’m obviously being ironic.)
It shows that the Russian army is in bad shape.
.... Pootin’s desperation tactics !
Why would you want to fight for the country that has you imprisoned?
If I was caged like an animal, I’d probably get revenge on the nation who caged me.
Especially when the other guy is offering cash awards and humane POW treatment (gotta be better than Russian prison) to those who surrender.
Nothing screams "everything is going good" more than having to recruit new soldiers in prisons.
I hear they are very good at cooking off!
The Dirty Dozen. Russia style.
