Russian soldiers reveal own command criminal acts: They shoot at us

MOSCOW, RUSSIA — Russian mobilized soldiers recorded a video message to the Russian President Mr. Vladimir Putin. They posted it on the Telegram social channel. Naturally, the Russian media did not mention the “video letter”. The faces of the military in the video are obscured, which is understandable.

The mobilized are from the Irkutsk Region, Russia, Regiment 1439 of the Russian Army. They were sent to the First Slavic Brigade [FSB] of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic [DNR]. Those mobilized say that sending them to the FSB is the first illegal action of the Russian command.

The soldiers believe that the actions of FSB command acted inadequately after an assault unit of mobilized was formed in one day. I.e. the fears of a part of the mobilized Russians that they will be used as “fodder” are justified.

‘You are expendable material’

The revelations in the letter continued. The newly formed assault unit was thrown into battle with no artillery, ground, air, or reconnaissance support. Moreover, the mobilized were thrown as the first wave of the attack, and from behind, from the rear of their own FSB, they were shelled with artillery.

“All of you [the mobilized – ed.] are expendable material. The only chance to return to Russia is to be wounded,” the Russian soldier explains the situation in his letter.

He says his colleagues do not know the name or ranks of their FSB commanders. Their FSB commanders even refuse to talk to them. “FSB commanders are firing machine guns and BMPs at our mobilized soldiers…, our lives are unimportant to the FSB command…, our command does not even know the real combat situation at the front, we are losing every day,” the letter added.

The incompetence of the command

According to the Russian mobilized, the command of the FSB has already replenished its human staff with soldiers for the sixth time. This is proof of the incompetence of the command, say the mobilized.

According to senior Russian military officials, the decree cannot be revoked. The reason – the mobilized and their families will remain without salaries and promises.

2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine

On 21 February 2022, Russia claimed that Ukrainian shelling had destroyed an FSB border facility. Russia claimed that it had killed 5 Ukrainian soldiers. They tried to cross into Russian territory. Ukraine denied being involved in both incidents and called them a false flag.

On the same day, the Russian government formally recognized the self-proclaimed DPR and LPR. According to Putin not only in their de-facto controlled areas, but the Ukrainian Oblasts as a whole. Putin ordered Russian troops, including tanks, to enter the regions.

On 24 February 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an invasion of Ukraine by Russian Armed Forces previously concentrated along the border. The invasion followed by targeted airstrikes of military buildings in the country, as well as tanks entering via the Belarus border.

Russia has so far not recognized the invasion of Ukraine as a “war”, although that is exactly what it is, claiming that it is a “special military operation”. According to the UN, a “special military operation” can only take place after a UN resolution. There is no such resolution. So this is an invasion and war against Ukraine.
