Russian is not ashamed to Phone Number List be Russian, and if he is ashamed, he is not Russian and he is not with us," said the president's press secretary, Dmitry. But there is a vulnerable point in this tenuous contradictory reasoning: it cannot be sustained for long. No amount of draconian information control measures can shield citizens from the monstrous reality. First of all, about a third of Russians have relatives in Ukraine. No censorship can prevent millions of phone calls and messages between them. My phone is filled with the most desperate pain. "We've been Phone Number List sitting in the basement for four days." "They are bombing. We are experiencing a blockage. No one can get in or out." “Today I stood in line for 5 hours to buy bread. They didn't bring anything." I can quote those messages by the hundreds. And there are millions like me in Russia. This testimony of the catastrophe is much more persuasive than the political debates. It is dangerous for us to discuss the number Phone Number List of casualties suffered by the Russian army in the Ukraine.
It is the most sensitive issue for the Phone Number List government, which closely monitors these discussions. The government has officially acknowledged that more than 500 soldiers have died during the "operation". Even this number is monstrously high. In ten years of war in Afghanistan, the USSR lost just over 14,000 soldiers and officers. Today, death enjoys a greater harvest. The veto of this information makes people look for numbers announced by the Ukrainian side (most likely exaggerated). On March 8, the Russian Defense Phone Number List Ministry admitted that there are some conscripted soldiers for the Ukraine war, which means poorly trained 18-year-olds. The words "cannon fodder" appear more frequently in messages and conversations. Women are afraid to let their children join the army and Phone Number List on April 1 the new compulsory military service will begin. Even in official polls.
We see that middle-aged Phone Number List women are 15-20% less likely to approve of "special operation" than men. It is precisely middle-aged women who had been considered the most loyal electorate to Putin. But another category of citizens Phone Number List important to the government is significantly influenced by casualties. It's military personnel. we see that middle-aged women are between 15 and 20% less likely to pass the "special operation" than men. It is precisely middle-aged women who had been considered the most loyal Phone Number List electorate to Putin. But another category of citizens.
