And your life. If you're lucky and don't get thrown in the torture chambers.

By all accounts, Russian military training involves hazing and abuse that's tantamount to torture, after which you'll die in Ukraine.

Ah yes...a month of torture...I mean...training.

Real quality military Putin has there.

No wonder they get slaughtered by the hundreds daily.

This really tells you all you need to know about the condition their military is in.

Stuff like this would happen in a prison colony if you took away all their entertainment and punished them mercilessly. To get some semblence of control they would then torture somebody else.

That's the difference between a well trained career soldier and a war serf who has to go to war or his family and he get executed. There's no way you can train engineers, doctors and computer scientists in that environment. You'll only be able to recruit idiots who have no other options.

Jesus fuck...they don't train soldiers, they train serial killers.

Lol what kind of culture is this? How does that make soldiers obey their officers? If anything the first thing I look for in a war is to kill the senior officers.
