At this point, the world has been made very aware of just how poor Russia’s military truly is, as their “special military operation” in Ukraine has now outlived its original estimates by seven months and some change.
Things just simply aren’t working, as Russian troops drop their rifles and flee, backed only by the barbarians in their 70-year-old Soviet tanks.
Now, as the sovereign nation of Ukraine continues to humiliate Vladimir Putin, the Kremlin is considering something rather drastic.
Russian authorities are moving closer to announcing a general mobilization. The State Duma of the Russian Federation introduced the concepts of “mobilization,” “martial law,” and “wartime” into the Russian Criminal Code and imposed a penalty of up to 10 years in prison for voluntary surrender.
At plenary session held on Sept. 20, the Russian State Duma adopted amendments to the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation in the second and third readings. They proposed to increase liability for certain crimes against military service. New concepts have been introduced into the Criminal Code: “voluntary surrender,” “looting,” “mobilization,” “martial law” and “wartime.” The decision was taken unanimously. The parliamentary session was broadcast on the website of the Russian State Duma.
Specifically, in the article on aggravating circumstances, the deputies replaced the words “in conditions of armed conflict or hostilities” with “during the period of mobilization or martial law, in wartime or conditions of armed conflict or hostilities.”
Such a shift will almost surely conjure concerns about World War III, as any attempt to expedite the genocide of the Ukrainian people will be grounds for international intervention.
