In the latest “Tiny Dick Syndrome” news, Putin has signed a law mandating a 10 year prison sentence for deserters and for surrendering.
That’s not something you do if you’re winning your war.

I saw the footage. This wasn’t one of those train tracks that were covered by grass, it was clear what was there. And the cops had plenty of space to park literally anywhere else. Were they rookies? Because that just seemed like a rookie mistake

Give it time, soon he’ll issue his own order 227 because the Russians still think they’re fighting in WW2

PUNCH A FASCIST!
Putin thinks he’s Stalin.
Which is both hilarious and scary.
Like seriously, Stalin laid in pain in his own piss because his own guards were too shit scared to even enter his room for hours:
Heh, wouldn’t mind the same happening to Putin…

Putin was part of the Soviet Union’s secret service, it it only makes sense he would fetishize Stalin. Also, the reason for that was due to Stalin faking a seizure before and had the guards executed for running in to save his life, so the next set weren’t going to make the same “mistake.”

Putin really seems to think he is Stalin
Assuming direct control did not in fact work so well even for Stalin, who at least had enough presence of mind to relinquish control back to the military before the situation became untenable, but this reminds me more of Nicholas II. Let’s hope it wouldn’t take three years this time.
Do you have any sources? Purposefully faking seizure and executing personal guards sound like an urban legend if I ever heard one.

U mad?
Damn Russia lost 4 aircraft over Ukraine today (SU-25, two SU-30’S, and a SU-34. Over 140 million $ down the drain).There’s high definition video on Twitter of one of the shootdowns.

Putin really seems to think he is Stalin
Except Putin hates communism and the only reason he has affinity for Stalin is WWII and (for better or for worse) being leader at the peak of the Soviet Union’s power (He’s also viewed favorably in Georgia, where Stalin was born and raised, and Armenia). The real analogy is Nicholas II, who was a literal monarch and a million times worse than any Soviet leader. Suffice to say things didn’t work out for him, or his family. Not that anyone felt bad, of course.

The AK 47 is one of the best rifles in history. It’s famous for the sheer reliability. One of the tales used for propaganda is how you can leave the thing buried in mud for 20 years and it’ll still never jam.
Well, apparently those exact rifles are now being issued since Russian conscripts are posting photos of them being given rusted AKs.

The AK’s reliability has always been a lie. It’s an easy to service rifle for sure, but it won’t just work after picking it out from the mud.
It’s going to be nutty when Russia starts buying Type 81s.

Considering what happened to the Commonwealth of England after the parliamentarians decided to simply exile Charles II after they beheaded his father, I don’t think the Bolsheviks wanted to take a similar risk (and history since then would prove them sorta right since ex-Chinese emperor Puyi betrayed his country and buddied with Japan in the 30s-40s; he’s lucky he only got a prison sentence).

Not enough of them here, private ownership was significantly restricted, military ones were sold to other countries or scrapped in their own time.
If we are being serious Russia is not going to run out of rifles, but rifles are neither the problem nor a solution here.
Also just in case AK47 was never called that officially, just AK, and the vast majority of “old” AKs you see out there are AKMs - AK had relatively limited (at least for the Soviets) production run.

Sat in a box in a dank warehouse for 30 years and the people in charge of checking humidity and re-greasing them just took the days off to go drinking and ticked the “job done!” box. Or the commander that was meant to hire people for that job just didn’t, faked the paperwork, and pocketed the money.
Same situation with a lot of their tank (etc.) reserves, really.

From an article I read, it seems like their training led them to focus their attention on the suspect in order to be ready for any surprise they might spring on them (since this is America, where guns are ubiquitous), and this came at the expense of their situational awareness.
