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.

Meet Angelica Ana Rose Pratt of Kingman, Arizona.
Angelica is not the most stable person you could come across, and apparently the Arizona sun has short-circuited her brain. Thankfully, Angelica has an answer to her symptoms… cocktails!
The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office arrested 36-year-old Angelica Ana Rose Pratt after video footage shows Pratt purchasing the glass jar used in the incident. Deputies responded to a possible arson call on Thursday around 8:30 a.m. The victim told police three different Molotov cocktails were thrown at his home and cars.
Angelica allegedly stalked the victim’s house through the night and apparently started throwing the Molotovs shortly after daybreak. What a way to start your day!
Two of the victim’s cars were damaged by the bombs. The total cost of damages was around $8,000, according to the victim. Witnesses said a silver SUV had been sitting outside the victim’s house multiple times early in the morning.
Pratt’s SUV was traced back to a home near Thompson and Lum avenues, where she was found. She was arrested and admitted to starting all three fires, MCSO said.
That’s a shame, because Angelica is such a beautiful woman. /eyeroll
