Regarding the FSB:
"Its primary responsibilities are within the country and include counter-intelligence, internal and border security, counter-terrorism, and surveillance as well as investigating some other types of serious crimes and federal law violations."
House arrest only. OH, I am glad. House arrest only. During WW2 the punishment would have been execution.
COMRADE, I'M LOOKING RIGHT AT YOU!!

"A captured Russian soldier spoke about the use of 'execution squads' to eliminate deserters as tensions within the Russian military rise, Interfax-Ukraine reported on Saturday."
"It seems Putin does not believe in his own army and resorts to Stalinist methods of controlling soldiers"
Red Army World War Two deja vu all over again? Stalinist methods? Red Commissars. Blocking Units. Penal battalions. Smersh. Executions. Etc.
Can it really be all that bad?
