I listened to an intercepted call between a Russian soldier and his mother. The soldier is trying to explain that he’s in a terrible situation, most of his comrades are dead, wounded, or ran away. The mother explains that he deserves this because in his previous life he was a traitor to the homeland. I never thought I could feel sorry for a Russian soldier but. . . Yeah. Dying in the war will be a happy liberation for the miserable fellow.
Obviously, she’s eager to get the payout from his death but the guy refuses to bite it and tries to figure out how to stay alive, so she’s upset.
