A good way to boost moral of your army.

Ukraine’s parliament has passed a law which authorizes commanding officers to use physical force against army defectors. It comes as the latest military draft has seen a lack of enthusiasm on the part of potential soldiers.


Lets see draftee army, the lack of enthusiam probably is an indication of bad leadership, and obviously there is a desertion problem or this new law would not be passed. Does not seem to be going too well for the Ukranians. Probably without US support the whole thing would collapse.

The Ukrainian government government has been making some really bad calls of late. Passing this new law won't make soldiers any more loyal than they previously were. Should they execute any deserters then they'll have more problems in their hands. Who'd want to serve tyrants?

That's not something you'd do in the midst of war. Wrong move by the Ukrainian parliament. This law will only breed ill feelings among members of the military. Easy for them to pass such a cruel law when they're not the ones on the field and dying for the country. If these are the kind of people in Ukraine's government, then no wonder the country was easily overpowered by the enemy.

Ukraine's leaders still have a shitty Soviet mentality [pardon my French]. This is definitely not a good way of conducting a war, and even more importantly, it's not a good way of maintaining good relations with Western countries they're hoping for help from.
