  1. Imagine a world where politicians fight first, before civilians!

    What an entire different world we’d all live… 🤔

  2. “**Russian politicians shouldn’t be drafted to fight in Ukraine because they need to stay and explain the war to citizens**, a lawmaker said Wednesday, according to multiple reports.
    At a meeting of Russia’s State Duma on Wednesday, **Dmitry Vyatkin explained why lawmakers like him were exempt from the partial military mobilization announced by Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier in the day,** the BBC reported.
    “Sometimes it seems that it is probably the easiest decision to walk away from solving problems here in the Duma and … go to the front,” Vyatkin, a lawmaker with pro-Putin political party United Russia, said at the meeting, according to the Russian news site Kommersant.
    “But behind us, behind each of us, behind all our parties, are citizens. Who are living seemingly ordinary peaceful lives,” he said.
    Vyatkin added that **it is a politician’s “duty and responsibility to convey the importance of today’s situation in Russia to everyone we can talk to, to whom we can reach.”**
    His speech came after another member of the State Duma, who has a military background, said he wanted to join the fighting in Ukraine, Kommersant reported.

    So, let’s force civilians to become cannon fodder and risk their lives in Ukraine to please the lunatic bloated dictator Putin but “lawmakers like hime” are privileged because they need to “talk to the people”…

  3. I remember those tiktok influencers making paid propaganda for the “operation”. I hope many of them get hit by karma now

  4. HA. HAHAHAHAH. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Spineless cowards need to stay home and “explain the war” how bout you say what u mean. “We are too scared to go and fight for the stupid war we started. While your husbands and sons go and fight our war we need to stay and help you people realize the war is a good thing and that we should continue to kill and rape the world of its newfound peace for Russian sovereignty that we lost.” I fucking hate American politics but fuck do I hate Russian politics more. Like y’all think our government is corrupt? How bout y’all go live in other parts of the world.

  6. You’re going to need a lot more people to explain this war ad it makes absolutely no sense. Not a single thing about the war is in Russia’s interests.

  7. Well at least they’re painting a big red target on themselves for when surviving veterans get back after losing.

  8. Some folks are born made to wave the flag
    Hoo, they’re red, white and blue
    And when the band plays “Hail to the chief”
    Ooh, they point the cannon at you, Lord

    It ain’t me, it ain’t me
    I ain’t no senator’s son, son
    It ain’t me, it ain’t me
    I ain’t no furtunate one, no

    Some folks are born silver spoon in hand
    Lord, don’t they help themselves, Lord?
    But when the taxman come to the door
    Lord, the house lookin’ like a rummage sale, yeah

    It ain’t me, it ain’t me
    I ain’t no millionaire’s son, no, no
    It ain’t me, it ain’t me
    I ain’t no fortunate one, no

    Yeah-yeah, some folks inherit star-spangled eyes
    Hoo, they send you down to war, Lord
    And when you ask ’em, “How much should we give?”
    Hoo, they only answer, “More, more, more, more”

    It ain’t me, it ain’t me
    I ain’t no military son, son, Lord
    It ain’t me, it ain’t me
    I ain’t no fortunate one, one

    It ain’t me, it ain’t me
    I ain’t no fortunate one, no, no, no
    It ain’t me, it ain’t me
    I ain’t no fortunate son, no, no, no
    It ain’t me, it ain’t me…

  9. Tbh, elected officials should be exempt during a draft bc they government needs them to run. Their kids can go in their place.
