A group of young Russians have been not-so-peacefully protesting the war in Ukraine; and by that, I mean they are hitting military recruiting offices… with Molotov cocktails.
As many as five Russian military enlistment offices have been set on fire since the start of the invasion of Ukraine, independent Russian media reported Thursday.
The latest incident took place in the remote Mordovia region Monday, according to the 7×7 news website. Molotov cocktails destroyed several computers and a database of conscripts in the Zubova Polyana settlement.
Well, it’s a start. Now begin hitting the Kremlin.
“The recruitment campaign in the [local] districts was put on pause,” media outlet iStories reported.
In March, local residents damaged military enlistment offices in the Voronezh, Sverdlovsk and Ivanovo regions with Molotov cocktails. Young men subsequently detained in Sverdlovsk and Ivanovo said they sought to disrupt the recruitment campaign in protest of Russia’s war in Ukraine.
It would seem to me the only person on Earth who approves of the Ukraine war is Vladimir Putin.
