Drunk Russian Troops Gets into Barroom Shootout with One Another in Ukraine

Things are not going ostensibly well for Russia in Ukraine, and you can tell by the sheer brutality that they’ve displayed.  No competent and winning army commits rape and genocide, after all.

The morale among Russian troops has been low, and obviously so, with mass desertions marking the early moments of the fighting, and a whole heck of a lot of surrendering after that.  The Kremlin has lost a vast number of rather prominent military commanders, and their out-of-date equipment continues to fail at every turn.

Now, in one of the more embarrassing instances of Russian incompetence thus far, a drunken bar brawl between Kremlin stooges turned into a deadly shootout in Kherson.

Russia has been struggling to rally the support of its own troops, according to internal government documents obtained exclusively by Yahoo News that detail drunken acts of insubordination six months into Putin’s invasion.

The documents include an incident and homicide report by the Russian Investigative Committee’s Military Investigations Department for the Black Sea Fleet regarding a June 19 incident in which three Russian soldiers were shot and killed and two others wounded in a gun battle with officers of the Federal Security Service (FSB), the successor agency to the KGB, at a bar in Kherson City, on the banks of the Dnieper River.
