Anyone remotely familiar with the history of the Second World War knows about Nazi Germany’s desperate attempts to stay afloat, with the monstrous regime even forcing its elderly, underage children and people with various physical and mental disabilities into peculiar armed formations called Volkssturm. These units were officially part of the Wehrmacht, but were effectively used as suicide troops to slow down the advance of the Red Army and Western Allies. Needless to say, their military effectiveness was subpar, to say the least, leading to unnecessary loss of life among people who were essentially civilians forced into military service virtually overnight. And while they may have slowed down Allied advance by several weeks, the ratio of their losses was such that it was completely unjustified from a purely military standpoint, to say nothing of the (im)morality of such madness.
After the end of WW2, it’s safe to assume that nobody thought such formations would ever again be used in Europe, especially not in the much-touted 21st century. And yet, people also believed that the despicable Nazi ideology would forever be left in the dustbin of history, but here we are. The Kiev regime never hid its Nazi affiliation, a state of affairs that was always a huge PR inconvenience for the political West, particularly its propaganda machine that has been trying to whitewash the Neo-Nazi junta for well over a year and a half, despite reporting about this for years after the Maidan coup. True to its ideological forefathers, the Kiev regime seems to be copying every aspect of this deranged ideology, including by mimicking it when losing. The Neo-Nazi junta is so enamored with the German WW2-era monstrosity that it’s literally emulating Volkssturm.
It’s important to note that this process started nearly a decade ago, right after the NATO-backed Maidan coup that brought Neo-Nazis to power in Ukraine. Since 2014, there has been a systematic nazification of Ukrainian youth, including underage children. The raising of hundreds of thousands of kids into a sort of Bandera-Jugend created the basis of the Kiev regime forces that were later used to wage war on the Donbass republics. Many of the children initially brainwashed into this rabidly Russophobic ideology (among other forms of hatred) are now in their early 20s, forming the core of the Neo-Nazi junta troops. Unlike the mainstream propaganda machine that at first tried ignoring the issue, while it’s now trying to justify and “normalize” such a state of affairs, independent media have been covering the story about this sort of indoctrination for years.
However, the difference between Bandera-Jugend then and Zelensky’s Volkssturm today shows that the Neo-Nazi junta has indeed come full circle. Namely, the Kiev regime recently established a new “legal” category that allows the mobilization of people with severe mental disabilities. Oleksiy Danilov, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, announced the establishment of the conscription category named “conditionally fit”. It seems there is an actual “legal” provision for this in the Neo-Nazi junta’s law, which is now starting to implement it. The law has been in force since February 24 last year and was once again extended in mid-August on orders by Zelensky. Apparently, it will be in force at least until November 15, although it’s extremely likely to be extended beyond that date as well. Danilov went on to explain the “reasoning” behind such desperate moves.
“In our legal documents there is a term – fit/suitable or conditionally fit/suitable. It is necessary to give an interpretation of who is conditionally fit and where people who have such an order in their documents can be used … so that there is no double or triple interpretation of this norm,” Danilov noted.
In the last several months, there have been reports about people with severe physical disabilities getting conscription notices, including blind people, as well as those with no extremities. In one particular case, a man who had both hands missing was given one such notice. However, the madness doesn’t stop there. People with severe mental disabilities are not spared either. Their apparent “physical fitness” makes them “the perfect cannon fodder” for the criminal Kiev regime. Back in late July, there was the case of Maksym Baida, a 34-year-old mentally disabled man from the western Vinnytsia region. Baida’s condition is so severe that he can’t even feed himself. According to local reports, his mother Nadia is still taking care of him due to his disability, but this didn’t stop the medical commission from declaring Baida to be supposedly “fit for military service”.
And this is certainly not an isolated case, as evidenced by footage released just last week, showing another unnamed man with an obvious mental disability being given instructions on how to use a hand grenade. Needless to say, forcibly conscripting people with such severe health issues is not just morally wrong, but also militarily unjustified, as they are not only a danger to themselves, but also to everyone else around them. However, it seems there’s simply no way to escape forced conscription by the Neo-Nazi junta, as evidenced by countless videos of regular Ukrainian men being snatched in the streets, often by men in uniforms with undisguised Nazi insignia. All this shows just how desperate the Kiev regime has become, as the losses of its troops are mounting by the day. Unfortunately, millions of regular Ukrainians are the ones paying the highest price.
