Russian military in turmoil as violence within the ranks escalates
The number of violent conflicts between Russian forces serving in Ukraine is rising as commanders are not satisfied with their recruits. They often go as far as murder
The Center for National Resistance reports that within the Western Military District of the Russian Armed Forces, "there is a tendency for unit commanders to commit violence against their subordinate personnel".
For example, in the Kursk region, numerous verdicts of garrison military courts on mass murders of servicemen have been recorded. When unit commanders shot their subordinates while on duty.
Such cases occurred due to "mutual hostility" or because the servicemen were under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
"As a last incident, in early February this year, the Kursk Garrison Military Court sentenced a senior warrant officer who, under heavy alcohol intoxication, shot a line of subordinates to 14 years in prison," the Center for National Resistance writes.
