Seems like it would be more prudent to draft the police, then draft civvys to replace the police.

Haha, the “police” are basically Putin’s loyal lapdogs in Russia’s mafia-like power structure. There’s no point not biting the hand that feeds you if that hand is trying to turn you into ground meat. Russia will do what Russia does best, forcibly conscript a bunch of peasants, poor people and “undesirables” and send them to die. Rinse and repeat until Russia’s goal is met while also constantly moving back the goalpost until it’s back where this all started, which means that the entire war was pointless and then blame it on some nebulous enemy like NATO, The West, Russian citizen’s lack of conviction, etc.

It’s funny/horrible seeing Russian Tik-tok personalities who were pro-war get drafted and then realize the sheer magnitude of their decisions.

Got any links of those personalities? Is there a subreddit for pro-war Tik Tok personalities going to war?

Wait so he was bluffing and then they basically conscripted him on the spot?

It looks like he was at a protest and got mistaken for a protester and was arrested not drafted
