Conscripts indeed cannon fodder the Ukraine Conflict?
Startling and greatly alarming headlines.
* "Conscripts began reporting horror stories from the front line within weeks"
From https://www.dailymail.co.uk | article by DAVID AVERRE | 22 September 2023.
Conscripts normally defined I am not sure what type of military personal they are speaking about. Raw recruits without any prior military experience? Or troops having been been previously on active duty, possessing a modicum of military skills, reservists called to active-duty?
"A report has found the average Russian conscript survived just four and half months at the front line - with one in five dying within just two months."
Average usually meaning 50 %.
"Last year Vladimir Putin signed a decree to initiate a 'partial military mobilization', drafting some 300,000 Russian citizens and shipping them off to fight in Ukraine to bolster his crumbling military force."
It was all supposed to take about two weeks max for the war to over. Wasn't it?
