What better reason to have kids than to have them sent off to die in a useless war to help a bald, thieving, midget overcome his inferiority complex.

My understanding is that's what got Trump Jr in trouble.

Putin understands demographics, Russia like most of the developed world is slowly lowering it growth rates because people are having less kids.

Putin's solution is Russians should have more babies, and the Russian government will help subsidize it.
Biden's solution is the rest of the world should cross the southern border, and the US government will probably help subsidize it.

Its really the same thing, except Russia will remain Russia, who knows what the US will become.

There's this...

Russia to increase size of military but says no mobilisation
www.hindustantimes.com

... Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree expanding the country's armed services amid his ongoing invasion of Ukraine.

The total number of armed forces will increase to 2.2 million people, of which 1.3 million will be servicemen, according to a decree published on the Kremlin's website late Friday.

That will increase the number of servicemen by 170,000 people, the Defense Ministry said in a statement on Telegram.

The ministry also said that the move was due to the ongoing war in Ukraine and the "expansion" of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, but it doesn't plan a mobilization. ...

Well, gee ...

wHo started war in Ukraine with an unprovoked invasion of a sovereign country, and then caused the resulting expansion of NATO that saw Finland requesting to join NATO and being accepted?

Who could have done those strategic blunders?

Hey Pooty, here's some advice. Quit getting into wars that kill off a big portion of your male population. Good luck surviving until 2025 Pooty.

Putin's problem with running out of troops, is having more kids takes a 17 or 18 year lead time to make soldiers. It's unlikely he'll be alive then. So that batch of cannon fodder won't be his to use. He has to deal with this war he started with what he has.

"You go to war with the army you have, not the army you might want or wish to have at a later time."
~ Donald Rumsfeld

Putin's army is now pretty much under trained and under commanded. He's lost most of his best troops and his commanders have been targeted for military assassination. He's already pulled from the prisons, he's dug into his civilian age group to make soldiers, the war is so unpopular at home that he's had to make laws against protests or even speaking against it. The civilian population is aware that their boys aren't coming back home, except as cadavers for the majority and they are not happy about it.

True, but who might replace Pres Putin, and will that person be better or worse?

Some reporting I've seen has shown that Pres Putin may be a bit less aggressive towards the West than Pres Putin's possible replacements.

So how would Russian mothers feed and clothe their brood of future cannon fodder?

Russia is done. Period.
Putin and his fiasco of a war have
seen to that.

The real question is, how hungry
is Xi for new real estate. And will
he dare to cross Russia's border?

Russia hasn't been this weak since
the middle of WWII, when Germany
was at its full extent within it.

Putin: Russian women need to make more babies because I need more soldiers to fight in Ukraine!

Too bad Russian women are becoming a collection of widows.

#13. China is already redoing maps of Russia with Chinese names.
The upside is there's going to be a great future for Russian war widows as concubines.

The right says they like Putin because he's all about defending the white race.

And they say this while they watch him start a large scale land war between two countries that are overwhelmingly White.

You want to care about a racial group? Have you tried encouraging the government to expand Medi-Cal? Because there are people that are whatever your preferred racial group are that need better Medical coverage.

All part of PoohyPants's cunning plan. He can trade the surplus Russian women to China for their dollar store electronics. Genius!
