You're right. It's sad- these conscripts are going to Ukraine without even being able to call their loved ones, without even knowing sometimes. They're one day training for this potential fight, but then are just told to fuck off into Ukraine without any support, and without letting their loved ones know about it. It's sad. But it's a necessary measure to prevent, what you said, Putin getting funding for doing more harm. Unfortunately for the Russians, this is what happens when your top 1% control the 99%.
Note, this doesn't mean I side with the Russians. I side with those who are surrendering and resisting fighting, and I hope every Russian who is concious of their decisions to go to Brussles and be tried for their war crimes (there's a lot right now).
FYI, if you didn't know, Ukraine people created a website to post killed or missing Russians to give a chance to their loved ones to "claim" (can't believe I said this) their loved ones. Too bad the Russians blocked this site. What a fucking disgrace to humanity. On a further note, the protests and arrests following criticism of the Kremlin. It's a horror show what's going on.
Slava. May God bless the Ukrainian People.
