So this story is about a Wagner mercenary that died in Syria and was given 5M rubles in insurance money. It seems to make a big deal about recognition etc. I think its all nonsense. Soldiers have been asked too long to die and have their bodies broken for a piece of tin and parades. Some hard cash is better. They brought his body back, and compensated his family. I don't see how this is not MUCH BETTER then the traditional deal where you get a flag and a "the nations gratitude"

Dost it mean you need to shoot thousand defenseless civilians before you are called guard?

bombs can suffocate the vermin by consuming the oxygen in confined spaces while at the same time leveling the buildings. Nice to
see the SAA not wasting soldiers and ammunition by trying to dislodge the vermin with old style approaches.
But what about masses of civilians? We know that terrorists are using them as shield.
