    Gorbachev's temporary removal also in 1991 also had been described as "vacation"... Very Happy

    Not sure if you have watched that statement. scratch
    He said that just realized being the longest ruling head of a region in Russian Federation.
    So maybe he should reconsider that fact, as he is getting older and older, and some things should be made by the younger ones.
    For me, it was some kind of reflection more than a political declaration.

    Possibly. It's hard to tell with these TikTok statements.

    It did appear to me that between all his video blogging, state duties in Chechnya and participation in the military operation that he was being swarmed with work. At least, he frequently seemed tired (albeit not always) on some of his vids.

    At first glance it might seem strange why he might want to leave his post as head of Chechnya at the height of his popularity and prominence, but it makes sense to do so and be remembered fondly, while also being able to cut-down on workload.
    Or it could just be a long break and he'll be back later.

    Maybe it is a kind of securing the space for federal presidential elections. scratch

    ... and in a case you have mossed that, he already explained what he meaned Laughing
    He wanted to "check reaction of the people" Laughing Laughing
    And according to the reaction, and after determining that he is not the longest ruling head, as someone is there for 27 years, he decided to beat that record Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

    Can anyone give some details why there are so many russians trying to cross into hostile georgia? AFAIK, the letters calling to go to the army were already sent. Nobody's getting more letters. Were the guys trying to leave actually called to mobilize or are they some liberal retards who are panicking due to false info and fearing that they'll get randomly drafted?

    About the letters, I don't know, mobilization is probably an ongoing process or at least no-one knows if it will be or won't be.

    And yeah, they're liberal retards or just panickers.

    Or maybe the claims of men trying to cross international borders to escape Russia is the bullshit made up by some sweaty cock sucker in a troll farm in the US.

    I am in some russian TG groups and there we could observe people who joined channels to cause panic and of course a lot of young folks and many women just naively believe everything. Calming them down is also almost impossible. It works for some, but there is always some part that are headless chickens and try to spread panic like wild fire.

    The coordinated paid panic/doomers are evident from the influx of new members on russian TG channels and all over the internet.

    Indeed. Russia needs to fight fire with fire. It needs a new gov funded outlet focusing specifically on combating misinfo and discuss shit many in the west dont understand or know. It is highly important for people to know of the maidan color revolution. The attempted color revolution in Kazakhstan and other locations. The regime changes. Even go back to the original actual color revolutions and arab springs. Bring up the Wolfowitz doctrine and who actually controls the foreign policy in US/UK.

    It is sad. So many say putinbot or paid actor, not realizing that western NGOs and governments spend up to twenty times more in propaganda, infowar, and subversion activities. People need to wake up to what is happening. Especially Russians. This is legit a war where Russians have just and moral cause to fight. This is rare as we know most wars in history are for less than noble purposes.
