Russian commanders are slaughtering their own wounded soldiers instead of retrieving them from the battlefield for treatment, Putin's own troops have said. A lieutenant-colonel was accused of personally shooting dead multiple troops as they lay injured. [snip] ... Russians spoke out about the brutal killings of their own forces within the ranks. Captured troops recalled one commander asking a soldier if he could walk after suffering an injury, and when the man replied he could not, the officer killed him instantly.


This country is not a moral beacon. it is not upholding Christianity. It has none of the signs of being awarded religious leadership by the Almighty. Patriarch Kirill needs our prayers if he is to avoid the deepest ring of hell.

Russian soldiers are brutal. They assault everyone in their way, combatant or not. If the US acted like this, or even accidentally killed civilians, the hue and cry would be never ending. And a lot of it would come from our own citizens. Killing their own wounded is barbaric, savage. Russia doesn't have a modern army and seems to plan on brute force. Putin's ego will destroy the country. Compare the Ukrainians to the people that fought for freedom from England, making do with what they have and never giving up.

Oh that sounds plausible. How do i know? Because bidet says putin’s a war criminal and monster and for God’s sake cannot remain in power. So of course that what his generals do. That’s why we must send the $40 billion without delay!! Any delay would have only confirm to bidet that he was really really correct when he said that white people like him must become the minority!! Each point confirms the other in a seamless web of liberal thought! Rejoice, or you’ll be severely punished, with joy !!

If these everyday reports from the Ukrainian media sources and Western military intelligence are anywhere near being correct and truthful, it is clear that the Russian military is the most incompetent military force that the modern world has ever seen. It’s very evident that there is no way that the Russian military could take on the modern combined NATO military force, which is a defensive alliance, triggered by Russia attacking NATO countries, and have any thoughts of survival.

I'll withhold any opinion pending more information. Is it possible that they are shooting wounded soldiers who stand zero chance of survival? Is it possible that the story is complete bunk? It it possible that the story is true?

One of the "benefits " to wounding a enemy soldier over killing him is that the seriously wounded soldiers require two or three soldiers to carry him back. Vicious, brutal, hateful way to 'solve' that problem. Not much of a morale booster.

If this is remotely true then the Russians have much bigger problems. If true I’d think the soldiers would aggressively turn on their leadership. This is how regime change began in Czarist Russia during WWI. During WWI the Russian soldiers left their posts on the Western Front in droves.

I don't believe this story. I remember the Viet Cong displaying captured U.S. soldiers who repeated what they were told to say under the pain of torture. This is just part of the World Economic Forum's Great Reset. Putin wants no part of it. He's defending not only Russia, but the whole cannon of Western Civilization. The world is separating into two spheres; Oil based economies and Green New Deal economies. The U.S., Europe and Australia/New Zealand are all embracing "green" totalitarianism, while the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) are staying with oil. Developing countries, who have any sense in their leadership, will not be following the West's suicidal policies. I have no desire to invest my energy or emotions in support of corrupt Ukraine, who has been facilitating millions of dollars in kick-backs to our corrupt leaders.

I'll withhold my opinion on this until I see more evidence. It could be true, or it might be "disinformation" as the left likes to say. In addition to a horrific shooting war, it's also a vicious propaganda war.

Back in WWII both Hitler and Stalin issued orders that any soldier who took a step back would be shot on the spot. Throughout history armies have encouraged soldiers to fight to the death by executing anyone who didn't. Patton threaten to have soldiers seeking battle fatigue relief shot. Romans were into decimation. As Sherman said War is a Hillary.

Likely propaganda. In the previous months, I'v seen reports of the Azov soldiers shooting their wounded, the Russian shooting Ukrainian prisoners and Ukrainian shooting Russian prisoners. Now we're hearing the Russians are shooting their wounded. Either both sides are guilty of war crimes or both sides are guilty of using propaganda to sway public opinion. Who do you believe? Brings to mind the very old adage, "Believe nothing you hear and only half that you see."
