I think the topic means to say that the Russian Army is bullying its own soldiers

but the Topic title is not so well structured and so led to misinterpretating it as the Russian Army is bullying people

Well this is the Army, not a summer camp for boys.

Has one of yours?



All of you get it together, if you do not have something productive or informed to say, do not feel the need to make off-the-cuff comments.

None of mine, PLA treats its soldiers very well.

How is my comment off-topic?
Some ppl here think "bullying" mede-soliders is OKAY, I say whenever their family member is involved in the mistreatment, then they will say different words towards this "bullying".

What's your point?

My point is that I do not want to see you telling other members that their opinions are not acceptable, and that if a member is not willing to put some thought and research into what they post, they should reconsider posting it.

If you have any further questions, use the PM system.

Perhaps the Russians should make their military smaller? Perhaps just enough to protect the borders. Would be easier to enforce order.

Though I would think they should try to halt most military operations, like for instance, Russian soldiers are deployed in Chechnyna, right?

Why do they even need to be there? Oh never mind, for another topic.

But it's too bad Russia must use conscription, I thought most well-to-do countries had switched to volunteer. Unless it is an emergency, I don't quite approve of forcing it on someone.

Well, so long as they're treating their soldiers like that, they're not going to get many volunteers. Some hazing and some similar things have there place, but within limits. I think Russia's going way past the limit.

The United States should really help Russia out. They help us out, and Iím pretty sure that the reason our operations have been going so smoothly in Afghanistan is due to the intelligence that Russia gave to us. We donít have to let Russia get away with human rightís abuse, but we must understand their position. If weíre going to criticize them, we might as well give aid to show our good intentions.

Maybe I am treating you boys too harshly.

The average Russian soldier is not well looked after. Pay is terrible or non-existent. A poorly run army can easily degenerate into the doing the bad stuff. Abuse of young recruits cannot help the situation.
