Novye Izvestia has more than once published materials about the activities of the Kuzbass businessman and opposition leader Vyacheslav Chernov, who is waging a real war with local officials. The battles are so far with varying success, but the forces are too unequal, and the civil apathy in the Russian provinces is too strong. This time, the officials decided to strike a blow in the most sensitive, family direction - to intimidate Chernov with an illegal conscription into the army of one of his sons, thereby as if testifying that serving in the Russian army is a punishment and not an act of patriotism. Here is what Chernov himself writes about this:
“Russia is often called Mordor. If we take this comparison into account, then Kuzbass is such a factory for the production of the finest orcs. Here they are born especially fat, arrogant and reckless. A well-functioning system has been created here for transforming the orcs into selected units to take control of territories and settlements.
The orcs are very offended by me and try to shit on me.
The other day they forced the local military commissar to interrupt his vacation and gave him a task - to rake my son into the army, who for the first time in two years for a month was able to come home from the Czech Republic, where he is finishing his secondary education.
Imagine, the beginning of August, the off-season, in the military registration and enlistment office, only sleepy flies break the deathly silence, a military commissar on vacation.
They call us and invite us to a conversation. The military commissar arrives at the appointed time, arranges interrogation with partiality and asks to write an explanatory note. At the same time, the son was removed from the register due to living abroad, the necessary answers were given to all requests of the military registration and enlistment office in a timely manner, all the commissions needed were passed, nothing was ever violated, there is nothing to dig into.
But ... an order!
Imagine something like this in any civilized country - a military commissar receives an order from above - as a repressive measure against an oppositionist, to try to take his son into the army in order to prevent him from completing his secondary education.
And here it is easy! So what, isn't it Mordor? Aren't they the orcs?
And this was right after the defamation was posted on an anonymous website run by employees of the Center for Countering Extremism that his son was a "chronic deviator."
For reference, not a single boy from the class where his son studied until the 9th grade is drafted into the army. Including the son of the head of the Tashtagol region. Guess for the sake of how many of them the military commissar interrupted his vacation for a personal conversation?
Orcs are hysterical, which means we are doing everything right, right?
