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.
