1/ Russia's Rostec claims it is developing reconnaissance and strike quadcopters that can work in a swarm. Not a surprising revelation considering how many Ukrainian and Russian efforts are already devoted to developing a drone swarm.

1/ Mobilised Russians from Siberia are upset that their commanders lied to them about where they would be serving, say they are living in appalling conditions with little equipment or supplies, and appeal for relief after suffering heavy losses on the front line. ⬇️

2/ In the video, provided to the 'Baikal People' Telegram channel by a relative, the Novosibirsk men say they were sent "in close proximity to the front line without any training, equipment or support."

3/ They were trained for territorial defence duties but "in fact we were thrown into an assault unit" on the front line. After only two days, they say they have suffered 19 wounded and two dead. Additionally, the men's logistical support is non-existent.

4/ They say they are getting no pay, they buy food, water and medical supplies at their own expense, they "live in completely insanitary conditions", and they are only equipped with "class four bulletproof vests and B2 helmets".

5/ They appeal to their leadership to "take us out of the zone of contact and sort it out" and take action against "the people responsible for this outrage, who sent unprepared mobilised men to the front line."

6/ It's more likely though that they will be sent back to the front line individually, without anything being done to resolve their complaints. This is particularly likely considering where they are probably serving.

7/ According to relatives' accounts, mobiks from Siberia have been not been incorporated into the regular Russian army, but into the notoriously brutal and badly led 'People's Militias' of the puppet 'People's Republics' of Donetsk and Luhansk. /end

1/ Wagner Group head Yevgeny Prigozhin reportedly wants to place one of his mercenary convicts in the Russian lower house, the State Duma, to strengthen his political position. The search is on for someone so terrifying that "all the other deputies will be afraid of him". ⬇️

2/ The VChK-OGPU Telegram channel reports: "The other day Wagner veterans were asked who wants to be a deputy. Before Soledar, Prigozhin looked at deputies and politicians like shit (in the private military company they said that he was the second person in Russia after Putin).

3/ "Now it is too obvious that butting heads with everyone in a row is not only impossible, but also dangerous: many have a grudge against Prigozhin personally, and there are not many allies.

4/ "So the search is on for allies, for ways to strengthen positions and for the possibility of Wagner's entry into the political arena. Consultations have already begun with [Sergey] Mironov and party, which is interested in the electoral prospects of the 'Musicians'.

5/ "Prigozhin is now making no secret of the fact that, to spite all his critics, he will, on principle, make someone from the amnestied criminals a deputy.

Senior Russian parliamentarian Sergey Mironov brandishing Wagner’s hammer, a gift from Prigozhin and the tool of the alleged execution of soldier Yevgeny Nuzhin. This is propaganda of murder and war crimes.
