Recruits were given the firearms at a military store in Primorsky, eastern Russia, as president Vladimir Putin’s surprise draft became a reality.
One conscript said in a video: ‘It’s the tank boys who were given this c*** [rusty Kalashnikovs].
‘They said, “You’ve got tanks, so don’t give a **** about the Kalashnikovs”.’
Another added: ‘These are the machine guns we’re getting.
‘F***** up, I’m f****** up…. I won’t comment on anything…. I’m shocked.’
As part of a tank crew, the men were told by commanders the Kalashnikovs were good enough.
Kalashnikovs, named after Soviet general Mikhail Kalashnikov, were introduced by the Soviet Union as a replacement for the AK-47.
Yeah, it's really starting to get real.
I miss Boroda's bullshit, but now I think that he's seeing his own lies laid bare first-hand.
