This is coolbert:

“You have let down our country and our Red Army. You have the nerve not to manufacture Il-2s until now. Our Red Army now needs Il-2 aircraft like the air it breathes, like the bread it eats. (This plant) now produces one Il-2 a day….It is a mockery of the Red Army….I ask you not to try the government’s patience, and demand that you manufacture more Il-2s. This is my final warning. Stalin.” 

As it is in 2022 so it was during the days of Joseph Stalin and World War Two?

From the Internet web site Strategy Page and thanks to same.

"Russia: Cornered And Coerced"

First paragraph of article as copied in entirety without alteration: [underlines courtesy your friendly blogger.]

"August 16, 2022: President-for-Life Vladimir Putin is trying to enforce a law he had had enacted a month ago that allows the government to impose wartime conditions on military suppliers who are not fulfilling their contracts. Sanctions on Russia from its invasion of Ukraine have cut off supplies of key components. The new law is vague on what the government can do other than order changes to working conditions and how managers operate. These are Soviet-era rules. Putin is thinking World War II while the rest of the world sees the 1980s."

Final warning as during WW2 meaning the Gulag or downright immediate execution!

Vlad between the rock and hard spot in not being willing to declare a general mobilization. Those suppliers and managers they also!
