Russia admits it sent young conscripts into its Ukraine war after Putin denied those troops were involved

Russia's military admitted on Wednesday that young draftees were sent to fight in its war against Ukraine after Russian President Vladimir Putin denied that conscripts were involved in the attack. "Unfortunately, some facts have come to light about the presence of conscript servicemen among the Russian armed forces conducting the special military operation on Ukrainian territory," said Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov. "Practically all of the conscripts have been returned to the territory of the Russian Federation," Konashenkov added. Konashenkov said, however, that some of the conscripts have been captured. Konashenkov continued, "Effective immediately, exhaustive measures have been taken to prevent conscripts from entering any and all combat zones, and to free captured personnel. Earlier this week, Putin said that only "professional" Russian soldiers were sent in to invade Ukraine and that he would not send conscripts to fight.


The Russian Ministry of Defense would have never admitted this if Russian conscripts had not been captured by Ukrainian forces.

Russian military conscripts serve an active duty term of one year. Depending on when they were inducted, some conscripts could have only very rudimentary training. Canon fodder.

Many Russian conscripts are also subjected to traditional and brutal hazing known as "dedovshchina" and have very little love of the Russian military.

All Russian forces that had surrounded Ukraine have been committed to the Ukraine invasion.

The Russians may ultimately win strategic victories over Ukraine, but it will cost him the anemic flower of Russian youth. Ukraine is going to bleed Russia white before this is all over, and Putin will be known as the Russian leader who mortgaged his country to China in order to restore some semblance of the Russian Empire.

Putin's Russia had to tell the truth, not just because conscripts have been captured, but because the families of 100K to 190K soldiers know it's a damn lie. Losing credibility with so many spouses, children, and parents of conscripts isn't worth it - so then they pretend Putin was unaware.

Sending the young and poor to the front lines? Who could have guessed Putin would do that? /s
