Remember when America toppled the governments of Iraq and Afghanistan in a matter of weeks, and still lost those wars during the occupation?
Russia hasn't completed phase 1 yet...
Good luck with the occupation if they ever get there.


You’re underestimating Russian brutality. The US worries about public scrutiny somewhat, while Russia would systematically massacre every Ukrainian that stood in their way

Russia’s labour shortage has been in part caused by the mobilisation of working age soldiers being called up to fight in the war in Ukraine.

In its latest intelligence update, the UK’s Ministry of Defence said Russian parliamentarians are now considering changing the labour code so that “excess labour force” could be moved to places that are short of workers.

Russia is currently experiencing a labour shortage that is becoming a significant problem in some sectors. According to estimates by the independent Russian media outlet Izvestia, Russia had a 4.8 million shortage of workers in 2023. As an example, the Russian transport and logistics industry was unable to fill 25% of its truck driver vacancies during 2023.

The labour shortage has at least in part been caused by Russia's war in Ukraine, which has led to mobilisation of parts of the working population and emigration by some skilled professionals seeking to avoid the call-up. More recently, the labour shortage has been exacerbated by restrictions on migrant employment implemented following the 22nd March 2024 ISIS-K terrorist incident in Moscow.

As a result of the labour shortages, a group of Russian parliamentarians are looking at possible amendments to the Russian labour code. If enacted, it would mean that excess labour force could be moved under state supervision to a place of work which lacks sufficient labour. The moves will be temporary and workers will only be transferred with their consent. However, although not coercive, it is a potential move towards the mobilisation of labour.
