Another New Low in Russian Humiliation
Meet Valentin Yudaskhin. A so-called Russian “fashion designer,” Mr. Yudaskin was hired by Vladimir Putin to design fashionable new Russian Army uniforms after Putin heard complaints that Russian recruits thought they looked like third-world idiots. In doing so, Yudaskin boldly declared he was creating a “uniform for victors.”
Take a look at him. Think about the fact that he’s Russian, working for a neo-Soviet regime run by a proud KGB spy. Now we ask you: How do you think this scheme worked out?
If you didn’t guess that people started dying, shame on you.
That’s right, dying. One parent reports: ”They gave our lads army boots made from fake leather with cardboard inner soles, socks, and light clothing clearly not suitable for winter. On the street they literally felt naked.” An entire barracks was struck down with pneumonia, and the army’s Chief of the General Staff General Nikolai Makarov attempted to defend the uniforms by arguing that they weren’t to blame, but rather the fact that the soldiers live like pigs: ”It seems that all this happened because of our slovenliness,” he claimed.
What kind of country can possibly imagine it has millions of dollars to squander on the services of a “fashion designer” for soldiers’ uniforms when those very same soldiers are being struck down by brutal dedovshchina hazing rituals, are being paid pennies for their service, and are being rounded up like cattle in an illegal manner and forced to serve against their will, as we document in today’s issue?
A country that is not long for this world.
