Russia has announced partial mobilisation. How many more people need to die?

News of people arrested at anti-mobilisation protests being served their mobilisation papers right there in the police station.

Reached out to my friends in Moscow, the mood is very very anxious...

My anxiety levels are once again through the roof today, but need to focus on getting work done and being there for the family 😬

"Classified article of mobilisation decree allows MOD to mobilise up to 1 million people" (Novaya Gazeta).

Of course, the fuckers would lie about the numbers, and why not? They lied about everything else.

News today that the government is planning to close down borders and prevent men of mobilisation age from leaving Russia.
A childhood friend made the escape today, a 48h journey combining planes and buses to a safe third country.
I’m glad he is out of danger, and I hope his family can join him soon.

While I’m relieved that my friend is out of danger, it’s hard to ignore that the distress I felt in this situation is but a tiny fraction of what Ukrainians go through every day, and that far from everyone can be certain of their loved ones being safe.

Fuck this war all the way.

The Guardian has a form asking Russian people to share how they feel about the war and mobilisation and all that. I've been trying to type into it for like an hour but all words seem inadequate.

There are now reports of mobilised men being sent to the frontlines right away, without any training whatsoever. Some telegram channels report that Putin is planning to try the old soviet ww2 tactic of drowning the opponent in blood. How is it possible to put so little value on human life? Why do they need more territory if the vast lands they already have are in such poor state? I have so much rage in me right now...

@gosha This seems like the kind of thing that is likely to result in a lot of fraggings and mass surrenders.
