Russians break limbs to avoid war
Video has emerged on social media of a man trying to break the arm of a Russian reservist with a sledgehammer



Some young Russian men are breaking their limbs on purpose and posting video of their efforts online to avoid going to war in Ukraine, according to reports.


Video has emerged on social media of a man trying to break the arm of a Russian reservist with a sledgehammer, the Telegraph reported.


In the video, the man raises the sledgehammer up and onto the other man’s arm, before covering his eyes and running away.

The Telegraph reported the man then stands up with his arm hanging limply by his side.

Another video shows a man trying to break a friend’s leg while it rests on a stairwell. The one man jumps on the other’s leg in the video.

This trend is a dramatic version of the attempted draft-dodging many Russians have tried to do by fleeing the country following Vladimir Putin’s mobilization order.

This has flummoxed me a little. I mean the russian air force is nothing to sneeze at and they're ALL about the bombing and you'd THINK they'd have little trouble knocking out a few bridges and crossing areas, but it seems like they can't even slow the ukraines down. I get that there's a decent amount of forward anti aircraft missile systems and such but still.
The Russian airforce has a severe shortage of smart and guided munitions. That's why they failed to gain the air dominance they should have had in the first few days of the war. Trying to destroy bridges with "dumb" bombs is hard to do, especially when your enemy's anti-air defences are still relatively intact.
