I say go but as soon as you leave for a mission raise white flags and surrender to Ukraine. Thats a double loss for Putin and his generals.

That's assuming everyone in the same squad also wants to surrender. Russia just made desertion and surrendering illegal (punishment is death) so anyone trying to surrender will be killed by people who are actually pro-Russia.

Shoot the traitors that dont want to surrender. Then Surrender.

Im joking i know it doesn’t work like that. Im just baffled how sending thousands who dont want to go in the first place is a good strategy

But it does work like that, they kill the squad leader/commander. Happened in Vietnam, which had conscription.

Fragging is the deliberate or attempted killing by a soldier of a fellow soldier, usually a superior. U.S. military personnel coined the word during the Vietnam War, when such killings were most often attempted with a fragmentation grenade,[2] sometimes making it appear that the killing was accidental or during combat with the enemy. The term fragging now encompasses any deliberate killing of military colleagues.
