    Literally give them back for trade. Ukraine is still net negative since the start of the war where the Russians took Mariupol.

      So was Vietnam. So was Afghanistan. Wars of attrition don’t tend to work out for the invading force, especially when they’re facing net negative losses as well.

        vietnam and afghanistan have absolutely nothing to do with the current massive conventional war in eastern europe. the tactics are different, equipment different, cultures different, terrain. whatever. but it sounds cool to say "past war is like new war hahaaa" so i get it

          He's right though, simply killing enough of the enemy is no kind of strategy at all
          The Americans believed this and lost to Vietnam, and America. The russians believed it and they haven't been farther from Kyiv in nearly an entire year

          An attacker winning a stalemate war by attrition would be really historically unusual. If they were consistently taking enough loot to pay for the war it might work, but Russia isn't.

            this situation is so unique there isnt really enough historical precedence to draw a conclusion. like iran iraq is similar but ukraine and russia are so different demographically/economically while iraq and iran were much similar. am i missing a war here?

                yeah korea works i guess. probably same result too dmz around the same staring positions or something. but even still the comp doesnt work very well on the economic front

                >this situation is so unique

                It's literally exactly the same as every other bungled Russian invasion in the last 200 years. The only time Russia didn't catastrophically fuck up an invasion was when the U.S. was bankrolling them. If you get your history from books intead of tiktok it's obvious.

                history doesn't repeat itself like everyone thinks it does. this line of thinking is why the germans were so sure the ussr would collapse and exactly why putin thought ukraine would crumble in days. this war is the first of its kind and cant be solved with equating the russian federation to the russian empire

          Just think, If Russia somehow gets its shit together, if they somehow win, if they manage to occupy Ukraine despite all the arms and sanctions and so on.
          Then Afghanistan or Vietnam style occupation is what they can look forward to.

        I get what you mean, but the reality is neither side has been taking that many prisoners, and the surprise rush at the start, a lot of Ukrainian military and civilians were captured, so they have a lot to trade back for.

      They still give them back. Like they fucked the Wagnerite who professed his loyalty to Okraina, then they gave him back where he promptly got 'hammered'.

        He fucked himself. He failed the lie detector test trying to join the Russian legion, then said nothing when he was told he was going to be exchanged. He honestly thought he'd get a pat on the back for trying to 'infiltrate' the legion after the video where he shit-talked wagner.

    Do you think i could buy one?
    Probably not from the army, but there are still independant volunteer battalions. And they need money for drones, optics, etc as they are mostly equiped by themselves and through donations or deals with other units.
    How much do you think i could try to offer for a russian pow, between 20 and 30 yo, not wounded, brougth to the border with Poland?

        I though i would offer 30k euros + whatever ask the smugglers on the polish border. I know there’s a bunch of them, and polish boder guards look the other way, as there are thousands of ukrainian males that need smugglers to leave the country.
        You think a vatnik is that cheap? Basically the price of a drone.

          I don't think it would be that cheap really. Maybe an untradable POW that Russia won't trade back, but any normally prisoner is basically worth the cost of a Ukrainian in a prisoner transfer, so probably a lot more in those cases.

              Yeah, and Okraina traded an opposition politician as well.
              Not to mention there were numerous times in the past where DNR or LNR complained the piggers were traiding bums and drunks off the street.

        While all of that is true, you can't expect soldiers on the frontline to always act rational and weigh the overall pros and cons of their actions. If they're fucking pissed at the enemy and get their hands on one, he might have a bad time. Shit happens in every war.

    apparently a wagner ”commander” fled last friday to norway after the mercs tried to force him to extend his contract after he finished his time (including 4 months in ukraine). Apparently not a former inmate, and he claimed to be in the same unit as the guy that got hammered.
    I wish that guy would make an interview with medias, he’s got to have a nice insight about Wagner inner workings.

    Trading them back as others have said, but if they ever do manage to have more captures than the Russians have, I think pressing them into service might be a smart idea. Giving them better equipment, better food, and not raping them is probably enough to secure their loyalty as it is. If the end of that service comes with citizenship then they'd be even more enticed into it as they don't need to get their head smacked in with a hammer after the war's end.

      That's what the Free Russia Legion is for, but it takes quite a bit of vetting. It's volunteer only and afaik pressing random POWs into service would be a war crime anyway.

    The difficulty in understanding the Russian is that we do not take cognizance of the fact that he is not a European but an Asiatic and therefore thinks deviously. We can no more understand a Russian than a Chinaman or a Japanese and, from what I’ve seen of them, I have no particular desire to understand them except to ascertain how much lead or iron it takes to kill them. In addition to his other amiable characteristics, the Russian has no regard for human life and is an all out son of a bitch, a barbarian, and a chronic drunk.
