This is coolbert:
From thebarentsobserver.com yet one more slideshow. Indeed, hard to view I must imagine for some including myself!
Russian men from the Russian far north as mobilized for the Ukraine Conflict awaiting departure for destinations unknown.
Captions as extracted from some images:
"Mobilization along border to Finland and Norway. Drafted men from the Pechenga rayon"
"Drafted men from Murmansk"
"Young indigenous Nenets men from the Yamal-Nenets region going to war"
"Mobilization in Murmansk"
"Governor Dmitry Artyukhov speaks to young men from the Yamal-Nenets region head of their departure to the battlefield"
Don’t expect any of these personnel to be properly equipped, kitted and trained for combat but with a minimum of six months of preparation and training that is my opinion. Vlad however might think very much differently as well the Russian army commanders. Too bad for those young men.
Not hard to have sympathy for these young men they are caught between the proverbial rock and hard place as I have said before and there is no way out.
