I would imagine this is true across many utilities and industries….

People across Russia are freezing in their homes in temperatures as low as -38°C because essential utility workers have been mobilised – even after the supposed end of mobilisation – and sent to Ukraine, hindering repair and maintenance work at home.…

Russian war propaganda has reached new heights,
According to Ria Novosti Ukrainian nazis are welding crews within their armored vehicles to be sent to suicide missions.

Wagner mercenary boss Yevgeny Prigozhin has promised to send former Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin home "in a plastic bag" if he goes near Wagner positions while wearing and carrying mostly NATO military clothing and equipment.




Dmitry Rogozin, Russia's former Deputy Prime Minister for Defence and Space Industry, is taking heavy criticism from Russian milbloggers for posing in an occupied region of Ukraine carrying and wearing NATO military clothing and weapons.

I'll just translate a headline of today's Russian newspaper for you:

"Media: because of price increases Britons have to eat their pets' leftovers. British families have to choose between heating and food".

From CNN today:
There have been 17 cases of embassies receiving either letter bombs, false bomb letters or letters containing animals parts, like the eyes of cows and pigs, according to Kuleba.“This campaign is aimed at sowing fear,” Kuleba told CNN in an exclusive interview in Kyiv on Friday.

When asked who he thought was behind the letters, Kuleba told CNN, “I feel tempted to say, to name Russia straight away, because first of all you have to answer the question, 'who benefits?'"

“Maybe this terror response is the Russian answer to the diplomatic horror that we created for Russia on the international arena, and this is how they try to fight back while they are losing the real diplomatic battles one after another,” he added.

Unfortunately they are just picking up on reporting from the BBC - which typically for the BBC relies on hearsay from one person - so it is not really propaganda, rather reporting international news from their perspective.

The BBC report is the almost verbatim source for the independent article above

Excellent explanatory thread.

Some people have been wondering why Russians have concentrated several brigades near a tiny town called Vuhledar, which approximately occupies only 5 square kilometers, and what makes Russians so obsessed with the idea to take it?

Indirect confirmation if large scale Russian loses due to hypothermia. “Fell asleep and didn’t wake up again”….

Early on in the chat, the comment that a lot are coming home in Zinc is referring to the coffins the Russians use to transport bodies, I remember a post from Belogrod of locals complaining about dumped zinc Coffins turning up in the garbage.

So Putrid is basically admitting that previous attacks were random attacks against civilians with no military targets in mind. Interesting!

Wow.

was interested to do a mind map of how you get from reality to Vlads frontal lobes. Found it had already been mapped out accurately.

"... consciousness of guilt... "

Evidentiary rules allow a prosecutor to introduce testimony that tends to show that the defendants actions prove he knew he was Russian guilty (at least of something).
