A very desperate Vladimir Putin is now “locking conscripts in a hot room without any water” until they sign up to fight on the front line in Ukraine to fill the so-called “volunteer battalions.”

Reports from a Russian news agency has said that only contract soldiers can legally be sent to the front lines in Ukraine as Putin has not declared war and has called the invasion a “special military operation.

The brutal tactics which are being applied by Kremlin recruiters is a clear sign that the Russian Army is failing.

A mother of a conscript in the Tver region told the Ridus news agency, “Guys in this military unit, on the orders of the political officer, are gathered in the club in enormous heat and with the windows closed.

‘No one wants to die for Putin’ as Russian troops are surrendering ‘en masse’ and are ‘fleeing from Kherson’

Russia rocked by airstrikes with hundreds of Russian citizens seen with suitcases ‘trying to flee inland’

“They don’t let them leave and they don’t let them drink water.”

The Kremlin are using these desperate tactics a more than 75,000 Russian troops are reported to have been killed or injured in last six months of the war.

In Russia’s second largest city, St Petersburg, the Russian army are also sending messages broadcast over loudspeakers, announcing, “Two volunteer artillery battalions are being formed. We invite men from 18 to 60-years old to join.”

In a desperate attempt to recruit officials are offering large sums of money and land to children who are at elite schools to try and get them to sign up, but in a snub to Putin they are refusing.

Speaking to the BBC, Nina Chubarina, from northern Russia, said her son Yevgeny was persuaded, and signed up for a volunteer battalion.

The mother tried to prevent him from joining because he had no military training, Chubarina said, “I tried to talk him out of it.

“I cried. I said, “There’s a war, you’ll be killed!”

He said, “Mum, everything will be fine.”

“They just send them in like dumb little chickens! They’d hardly even held a gun before.

“They’re cannon fodder. The generals think, ‘We’ve got a volunteer: great, in you go!’”

Investigative journalist Roman Dobrokhotov said this is evidence that this latest attempt to recruit shows the Russian army are desperate.
