Skriv løs

… og se nu at få det sagt ordentligt

Hvem har lyst til at være kanonføde?

Undskyld mig hvis denne post overskrift og indhold stitter i alle retninger.

Jeg er forvirret her, for skrækken for at blive soldat i en krig som jeg ikke har nogen interesse i sidder dybt i mig.

Derfor påvirker det mig meget at høre en Ukrainsk russer fortælle at han bandede og skældte ud da han blev kontaktet af tidligere kollega i Rusland om at han kunne blive noget stort, hvis han støttede de russiske invasionstropper.

Dér hvor krigene i virkeligheden udspilles: i baglokalerne, ikke sandt? Det er ikke soldaterne, som vinder krigene, eller er det? Det er de døde, der taber, så meget er sikkert og vist.

NYTimes:

KRYVYI RIH, Ukraine — The solicitation to commit treason came to Oleksandr Vilkul on the second day of the war, in a phone call from an old colleague.

Mr. Vilkul, the scion of a powerful political family in southeastern Ukraine that was long seen as harboring pro-Russian views, took the call as Russian troops were advancing to within a few miles of his hometown, Kryvyi Rih.

“He said, ‘Oleksandr Yurivich, you are looking at the map, you see the situation is predetermined,’” Mr. Vilkul said, recalling the conversation with a fellow minister in a former, pro-Russian Ukrainian government.

“Sign an agreement of friendship, cooperation and defense with Russia and they will have good relations with you,” the former colleague said. “You will be a big person in the new Ukraine.”

The offer failed spectacularly. Once war had begun, Mr. Vilkul said, the gray area seeped out of Ukrainian politics for him. Missiles striking his hometown made the choice obvious: He would fight back.

“I responded with profanity,” Mr. Vilkul said in an interview.
