Why Russian Army Is Built on Dehumanization

Dehumanization is not only widely used by the Kremlin against Ukrainians but is an inherent part of the Russian army. To make sure the ever-shrinking ranks of Russian soldiers (thanks to the outstanding defense of the AFU) are constantly replenished with fresh cannon fodder, Russia resorts to:

  • stepping up mobilization in depressive regions of Russia;
  • providing ridiculous compensation for the families of the mobilized, which is just food in some areas;
  • delaying or even canceling payments for injuries.
