Growing distrust of Putin’s regime, 17 draft office arsons in Russia…detentions total 2,350.
Protests against Russia’s partial mobilization over the invasion of Ukraine continue to grow. The independent news site “Mediazona” reported on the 25th that arson attacks on conscription offices and related facilities have risen to 17 since the order was issued on the 21st. President Vladimir Putin and others were among those targeted for mobilization. The reality of the call-up, which is far removed from the “reservists with military service experience” described by President Putin and others as the target of mobilization, has been reported one after another, and public distrust of the regime has been growing.
According to ROSPARTISAN, a social networking service that calls for resistance movements in Russia, Molotov cocktails were thrown into a conscription office in the southern province of Volgograd in the early hours of the 26th.
Since the invasion began in February, the Putin regime has tightened penalties against the anti-war movement to contain it. According to independent human rights groups, the total number of people detained at protests since the partial mobilization was issued on March 21 has exceeded 2,350.
In order to avoid criticism of the mobilization, the Putin administration has been leaving the actual convening of the protests to the local governments, including the provinces and republics, which has caused confusion and has made it difficult to stop the protests.
In an attempt to meet the quota set by the regime, the local governments have distributed convocation warrants even to those who are not eligible for mobilization, such as students and the elderly. Fewer and fewer people believe Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu’s explanation that the mobilization was 300,000 people.
Yomiuri Shimbun Online: Growing Distrust of Putin’s Regime, 17 Arson Cases at Draft Offices in Russia…Total Detentions 235. The Yomiuri Shimbun Online: “Putin’s regime is gaining ground in Russia.
The detainees will be sent back to the front lines.
I guess so.
They’ll be given summonses from the detention center and they’ll be confirmed.
Coup counts down the seconds.
In today’s Russia, all the protesters would be volunteer soldiers.
Once again, I’m amazed at the power of nuclear weapons.
Even with the partial mobilization, it seems that they still have a soft spot for urban areas and are trying to uproot and mobilize the rural areas to make up for it, so even if the center of Russia doesn’t collapse,
there will probably be a rebellion in the rural areas sooner or later.
It’s amazing that no one is taking leadership.
It’s a ragtag group.
Better to protect the Kremlin than send troops to Ukraine, right?
Bellicose and drunk Russian soldiers attempt to break through a Ukrainian buried
Attempt to break through a minefield. Finally, a complete reenactment of the WW2 Eastern Front.
They’re terrible people, invading Ukraine and then going berserk because of a mobilization order.
They’re collapsing from within.
I wonder if the Honnoji Incident will happen.
Meaning the famous coup d’etat that took place in Japan around the 15th century.
Most revolts start in the countryside, so if you don’t take care of the countryside, you’re going to get killed, President Putin.
Too much effort is being directed at the country.
It’s impossible to have compulsory conscription in a developed country.
It’s like a social experiment.
I think we’re about to have a riot that’s going to be on the level of a military mobilization.
And then the military will be dead and it will turn into a democratic uprising.
Let’s see if Putin will suppress it like Stalin did.
If it goes something like the Russian Revolution, then the Russian Civil War, then the breakup of Russia, then the formation of the Soviet Union, I’ll rethink my opinion of Russian citizens.”
You can’t ask the Russian people, who are fleeing the country to escape the draft to spare their lives, to speak out against the invasion of Ukraine or to start a revolution.
You supported them a while ago.
It’s funny how the draft has increased the number of pacifists.
Anti-war protests have been happening all the time since the war started.
I guess you don’t act until it happens to you.
Just because 2,500 people demonstrated in Russia doesn’t mean anything to Putin’s regime.
If you demonstrate against them, they’re going to suppress you and detain you, so you’re going to have to come out in at least 100,000 units.
Putin: “If you use Instagram and Facebook, you’re an extremist who has a negative impact on Russian society, you’re under arrest.
It looks like they’re really arresting them.
So much so that the military says they don’t have enough people to control the country.
All you pro-Russians who are on the internet, go help Putin as a volunteer soldier.
No one is going to stop you.
The first group of draftees is about to start dying, and I’m wondering if that will start to get through to them, and they’ll start to get rough from the region.
It’s not mistrust. It’s terrorism.
The draft is the beginning of the end.
Patriotism-less Russian citizens will riot and the government will suppress it with force, which will further damage the image of the country.
If Nawarinuy was a more dynamic guy, he could have been a leader, but he’s just an anti-government.
Putin: “I see, this guy is going to Ukraine.
“See, I don’t think he thought the U.S. would support him militarily this far.
We’re not under attack.
No one’s going to go along with a mass conscription…
You’re going to arrest them, you’re going to conscript them.
And then finally put weapons in their hands?
I think it’s just going to create a rebel army.
A ‘conscript bus’ is now cruising through Russian cities.
When they find a man, they push him into the bus and take him away.
In many cases, men have been taken away while refueling at gas stations.
I see. So you’d rather go to jail than be drafted.
The problem is that if you go to jail, you’ll be sent to the front lines without question.
We need to purge the local governments that are working against Vladimir Putin’s wishes.
Do they have gun control in Russia?
If so, it’s gonna be hard to stage a coup.
When you’re kidnapped, you’re given a rusty, inoperable rifle.
When they get to Ukraine, they’ll be fodder for America’s high-tech long-range artillery guns.
A coup d’état and a democratic government! That’s the thinking of the flower garden in the Western brain. Russia is a country that will only become a more authoritarian dictatorship.
All over the place, heads of conscription offices are being shot at.
My country’s war is a just war, but I don’t want to be in it.
In the war zone, on the other hand, Russian fighter planes, forced to penetrate at low altitudes by the Ukrainian military’s enhanced air defenses, have been shot down with javelins and shotguns (!).
I hear that there have been cases where Russian fighters have been shot down by Javelins and shotguns.
Even if you put these people on the front lines, they’re not going to be able to blow up ammunition depots and food depots.
Russian stocks plunged 8.62% yesterday.
The Russian economy is in trouble.
You guys are talking about starting a coup.
I don’t know what kind of a coup you’re talking about in a country like Russia that has so many nuclear weapons.
If nuclear weapons were to fall into the hands of people who have no idea who they are, the world would become even more dangerously chaotic.
And if those nuclear weapons fall into the hands of unknown people, the whole world will be plunged into a chaotic and dangerous situation.
The people who started the coup would never act in the West’s favor.
Even if we mobilize 300,000 people, we won’t have enough time to train and we won’t have enough armaments.
There’s no way they can conduct operations, and they’re no match for Ukrainian soldiers with U.S.-style training.
I hear the draft list is a paper list, not an electronic file, and Molotov cocktails are being thrown at it. If you burn it, they said, you can’t draft.
I thought they were saying that in Russia, resident information isn’t digitized, so if they burn the documents, they can’t draft you.
It doesn’t matter if you’re shoving them under the bus from one end to the other.
