Any Russian or Ukrainian wizzies out there? Without delving too much into politics, how has daily life changed for you? I’m a eurofag and I’ve been curious about how all this chaos has effected regular everyday wizards.



>Without delving too much into politics,
How would this not delve into politics?


its not getting into who is right and wrong just what their daily lives are like


Shortage/price hike of some types of food, duh. Couldn't buy liquor until about a week ago, there is talk they will forbid it again. More Polish foodstuffs. My local atb-market had a bath of stale croissants and you can take them for free. Saw a slightly beat up refugee Mitsubishi with rags over windows. Street lights are off.


Wait are you Russian or Ukrainian


>had a batch


Ua. No problem. Second world problems should be irrelevant to you


It's all a distraction from the adverse effects of the jab.


Ah, okay. Are you being made to fight? Are you afraid? This time around seems increasingly relevant. Anyway, it could’ve happened to any of us. None of us chose where we were born.

Ukraine should develop weapons that shoot covid vaccines.


>Are you being made to fight?
Not yet
>Are you afraid?
My physical health has going to shit and worrying about that takes up most of the brain power, i hardly notice the war. I will if and when my town will get hit. No bottom floor in hell as they say.
>it could’ve happened to any of us.
Unless it's Russia vs Baltics i can't imagine civilized euros fighting their neighbors


>has been going
>i will notice it if and when


Shit, sorry to hear wiz. You Eastern Europeans are tough bastards. I heard that early in the war, all Ukrainian men 18-60 were made to stay in the country. Do you know how this works exactly? What if somebody is disabled, mentally or physically? Would they be allowed to flee? Do you want to leave?


Border control wont let you leave and you'll to go jail if you try to leave illegally. Disability could allow you to be an exception, but this is not a western country so they dont respect most mental illness. Even trains wouldnt let young men on since they were for evacuating succubi and children. The military are looking for people so I know some neets that are too afraid to go outside and their families and neighbours are lying saying that they dont live there


Damn, that sucks. I guess on paper they’d allow someone severely mentally ill to leave (schizophrenia etc), but in reality I imagine it’s practically impossible to prove that and convince the border guards to let you leave. I’m sorry you’re going through this shit wiz. You never asked for this. Please stay strong and stay safe. I really hope things settle down soon. Life is hard enough as it is.


Russian wizards, fighting type or not, war has now come to you as Ukrainian helicopters have just rocket struck some key oil distribution infrastructure.


that's russian propaganda


probably they fucked themselves again like with the plane.

Why is the Grembling saying Goverment of Ucraine is Nazis? sure they may descend from Nazis some of them but to me they seem very Africanized in fact sometimes I am not sure if its ucraineor fucking Somalia or France that I am watching, I really really want Africa to be Nuked…


Well, what can i say. Ukrainian army starting to conscript normal people. Every corner of the media world here is screaming about how russians are "raping" us. Everything that contradicts our nazi-machine is deemed insane and either deleted or responded with deaththreats. Internet has somewhat slowed down in my area. People from 18-28 age are getting conscripted from botom up which means people who live in suburbs are getting drafted first while citydwellers are left for the next time. (which sucks because i dont lve in a city)


Fuck the Ukrainian army and government


Wait I thought all men 18-60 have to fight already. Didn’t they announce that a while ago?


unironically break your leg. Take painkillers and get drunk and just swing at it with a bat. They can't send you to the frontlines if you can't walk.


I guess you can't get away with pretending to be a tranny? Breaking your leg if the azov faggots come knocking on your door would still be better than being their meat shield. Though this might run the risk of being dragged and taped to a lamp post for being a "traitor".


The Russians are also forcibly conscripting men from the occupied areas and sending them to the front lines. At least the Ukrainians will likely send you through some sort of training first and if you want you can refuse to fight and they will just send you to jail. In Russia they would probably rape you and torture you until you complied.



>The peculiarity of modern nazified Ukraine is in amorphousness and ambivalence, which allow Nazism to be disguised as a desire for "independence" and a "European" (Western, pro-American) path of "development" (in reality - to degradation), to assert that in Ukraine "there is no Nazism , only private individual excesses".

The term 'nazi' has basically lost all meaning, but this state-sponsored media website is claiming that the war basically is to stop western degeneracy from spreading. Everybody who isn't brainwashed by western propaganda knows what they are talking about.


>claiming that the war basically is to stop western degeneracy
If given a choice between western degeneracy and eastern authoritarianism i will choose the former since the will more likely benefit me personally by implementing neetbux


>In Russia they would probably rape you and torture you until you complied.

they also rape you if you do comply, in their hazing system

Heard the news one couple became victims of Muscovite army. Man's phone was stolen and succubus got shot. She had the same name as our former neighbor hairdresser who relocated to that suburb town. Turned out it wasn't her and the reportedly dead succubus was wounded. Haircut was done at home by that former neighbor hairdresser who came to the city.

Internet sometimes was slow. Sometimes it was nonexistent (not mobile internet). I saw smoke from my window. The paint company warehouse was bombed. About 5 times I saw yellow shine in the distance. But usually it was just sound of explosions. Now it's just the alarm. Often I notice the alarm outside and it's faster than the app tells about it or the local TV channels become red with alarm noise.

The cat of mother's friend has been living here for a month. Became thicker, plays with toyballs, jumping like a basketball player with two front feet holding the ball. I blocked doors to my bedroom with a pillow so she wouldn't scratch and I could try to get some sleep. Uncontrollable actions still get blamed, yet controllable not done actions which are more necessary and have all evidence of being real and more necessary don't. Parents still loudly snore.

Once heard aircraft noise as if it was passing by somewhere near. It immediately woke me up in the night just like in my dream. Many national and especially news TV channels have the same war broadcast. Paw Patrol, German pro-wrestling and that broadcast were watched during the alarm time for some hours. Obviously all curtains down. All public lights are off at night. Very dark.

One kids animation TV channel decided to stop working for the time being for the mood and situation cause. The rest are working. Belsat channel where they often speak Belarusian appeared. Muscovite propagandist Nikita Mikhalkov was banned on YouTube in Ukraine. Available with VPN. He was notable for conspiracy theories about vaccines, Bill Gates and now bioweapons which can only kill people with Muscovite DNA/citizenship only and not the rest of the world including other neighboring countries.

Due to absent WiFi, I missed the last day of consecutive log in to Love Live SIF. Didn't get UR card of Shizuku Osaka for her birthday. Could've put relative's simcard for mobile internet. Actually should've. (of course, it's nothing compared to vicious tortures and other such suffering)


It happened in March. Meaning I didn't get either Ayumu-chan, Hanamaru Kunikida or Umi Sonoda.


Please stay safe wizzie. And protect that babycats, she sounds very sweet. I’m sorry you’re having to go through this. What a life. What do you think about when you hear the shelling? I can’t imagine such a thing.


Shelling was far away. However, at least twice it was stronger so that car alarm outside went on and glass in windows (including in my room) started shaking.


WiFi at that point appeared. The update was necessary to start the game past the update screen. Fail due to low speed.


why are you using gender neutral terms like people when its entirely men being conscripted


females arent people

The aforementioned plainly packaged Polish tins of turkey meaty stuff. Tastes fine. Translated sticker claims it was re-packed in Dnipropetrovsk which is further east from where i live, logistics are a fascinating thing

I dont get alot of responses in the /pol thread so ill put this here as its more relevant:

whats everyones thoughts (and especially ukranian wiz's) of these refugees who literally take planes from poland all the way to tijuana mexico of all places thinking they are going to come in easily and get free shit?



You don't get a lot of responses in the pol thread because the pol thread is a containment thread FOR A FUCKING REASON. GET THE FUCK BACK IN THERE.


>adverse effects of the jab.
Literally none


Another 90 pages of negative side effects were just released by Pfizer and even left-leaning governments likes that of GB and those in Scandinavia are now publishing headlines relating sudden cardiac and blood issues to all of the approved vaccines. It's coming from the most mainstream sources of news right now so you can easily go and look it up and get results.

90,000 pages*


usually Russia derails everyone elses' thread, now covid derails russia thread


Reversed russian reversal


As a Russian national I have to ask: dont you have any patriotic/nationalistic feels? Not even in formal sense, but purely biological-gut feeling shit aka "my land/people/tribe is under attack?" Or you are just cynical/nihilistic about whole affair? I just doomscroll mostly, physically safe, everything looks safe, nothing extraordinary but psyop thing is getting it's toll on me too, I noticed several times that retarded irrational feeling of "pride" than reading news about alleged military success and at the same time feel down, a little butthurt while reading about losses. And I am neet virgin and obv dodged mandatory military service in my days. Scary and stupid,like in Strugatsky "inhabited island" book. I envy apathetic or rational minded wizards, I got too erratic and emotional lately reading that stupid shit even perfectly knowing all that "war is a racket" staff.


I read in an article somewhere many years ago about this pacifist british guy who saw the effects of war on his dad and whatnot and shunned all that shit. One day he saw a military parade and described how even him could not help feeling pride and beligerant and explained how easy it is to let your emotions overwhelm reason.

I can understand those feelings but it's absolutely retarded to become a soldier. A small group of powerful people using idiotic youngsters on a powergrab against another powerful group of people. Imagine ruining your life over this. You get nothing out of it but ending up psychologically and physically mangled or death if you're lucky.

There's a reason they go for young people and it's not just because they're generally healthier. They're also a lot more stupid.


if you are an officer, you could rise through the ranks yourself


i know that one guy is russian but it's not that bad in the united states. it's a glorified babysitting service, your entire life is 'on rails' with a totally structured lifestyle where everything is provided for you. and when you finish you can continue being babysit by the gov by being paid to go to college for x years. and you have medical benefits for the rest of your life. the majority of jobs arent combat related. and the overwhelming majority of combat related jobs dont even see combat. if you get an injured somehow while serving, you can even claim disability benefits and get payouts every month for the rest of your life

Damn that sucks. Can't even order computer stuff from germany no more. Russians can suck my dick, this is all because of them



how about you explain yourself and speak your mind instead of regurgitating inflammatory buzzwords?


Wonder what all the homelessness is about then. Either way, living life "on rails" can be achieved just as easily with a different retarded full time job and you'll actually get to preserve a shred of your dignity in a handful of those.


the army doesn't have 0 standards, its not a homeless shelter


great opportunity to make money smuggling goods, although organized crime probably got that covered already i guess


i highly doubt there is anything that structures your life more so than the us military. the military bases are basically islands that never require leaving, you are housed and fed there, herded around like sheep, and explicitly told what to do at all times. for every action you do, there is a technical order detailing the exact steps and procedures required


Walking back home from grocery store
all of a sudden police comes up to me out of nowhere/
Asks my phone for inspection
I give it to them (don't want create any discord or extra problems)
They check everything for 10 minutes
(pictures, photos, YouTube history)
Then they ask my about what do I think about war?
Say a lot of patriotic words, blame everything on Russia…
Check my passport, they keep asking a lot of personal questions.
WTF? am i being questioned my the police in the middle of the street?
Say whatever I can.
They finish questioning , nod silently, give me back my phone and passport, and walk away.

WTF? I heard it happened to some people, never thought it would happen to me…

What if they found some Russian e-books that i`ve been reading? Or some memes? What then? Russian spy accusations?

STFU about Ukraine being democratic, and respectful of human personal rights. It never was. Freedom exists only for the rich.


Why is this concerning to you? You gave them permission to search through your shit so why are you surprised when they do it? I can't see any violation of your rights here.


>They check everything for 10 minutes
(pictures, photos, YouTube history)
That's scary. I'd be terrified of the police checking my saved pics. I have some questionable, though still totally legal, stuff there.

Wouldn't say they were asking for permission.


Gonzalo Lira, or Coach Red Pill basically puts out Russian propaganda, about how Ukraine is run by Nazi criminals who will be justly hung when Russia inevitably wins. And he is still in freedom in Kharkov putting out more propaganda. He was detained and interviewed by the SBU but they let him go.


>Coach Red Pill
I don't need to know anything else to know this guy is a fucking retard.

>In mid-February 2022, Lira said that "no one over the age of 12 or with an IQ over 90 seriously believes that the Russians are going to invade [Ukraine] anytime soon".[15] After they did in fact invade just over a week later

top lel


>"no one over the age of 12 or with an IQ over 90 seriously believes that the Russians are going to invade [Ukraine] anytime soon".[15]
He wasn't really incorrect in this. Western Kremlinologists were more or less aligned with that opinion, and all preparations for invasion in Ukraine were done with the notion that the invasion would be one or more years down the road. The blyatskrieg did catch the NATO diplomats, and Ukraine militias and military, and even Russian military underprepared; the siloviks in Moscow knew, but not the civilian intelligentsia.


so thats who all the recent posters are parroting? can the site even recover at this point? :(


NATO and the US Govt were providing you photographic proof daily, and you called it propaganda then. Now that your pants are down "oh everyone was wrong, no one could have seen this"


dude thats why i say just let ukraine fall already does russia do that to random people on the street? If not fuck kike puppet zelensky and him making people suffer to keep him in power


wasnt he murdered? good riddance


I think it will. I've been reading about how Russia handled its wars in the past and their main method is not giving a shit about its citizens. They just keep sending wave after wave of soldiers, losing hundreds of thousands in the process. Life is cheap in Russia, they don't give a fuck. If you destroy all their tanks and planes they'll just walk to Kyiv, barefooted if needed. Seems like it's going to be a pyrrhic victory, we'll see.


I think it's even dumber considering there has been conflict for 8 years. News just started talking about it all day suddenly.


isn't this revisionist history a little too early? it was only 3 months ago, i'm sure we all remember the lead up. the media were claiming the exercises on the borders of ukraine were configured for invasion, but nobody took it seriously because nobody believes the media, and i think most people were honestly surprised when it happened. but we also see from this the standards have dropped significantly, because now you're having to defend NATO and the US government and not just an institution like the media (probably a lost cause)


>, but nobody took it seriously because nobody believes the media, and i think most people were honestly surprised when it happened

Well Score 1 for the bad guys over the know it all skeptics


hello my fellow wizards, i am enjoying my day being unskeptical of the media, military, and government. i hope you are enjoying your day too


>know it all skeptics
>know it all
Wait what? Isn't that the opposition of the definition of a skeptic?


It should be. But most people who think of themselves as skeptics have their own dogma, and take everything uncritically as long as its not mainstream.


I knew the invasion was going to happen even before the government announced it simply because of Russia's negotiating posture. I said the same in posts I made at the time and people called me dumb. All you have to do is actually follow the news closely and certain patterns become easy to figure out. Please don't assume everyone is as willfully ignorant as you.


for clarity i wasn't writing about myself, but about most people. geopolitics spergs would've already known what was going on in the east, along with the gayops in kazakhstan and karabakh where russia had to intervene in the months/years prior


I was debating the war with my dad, and he was saying that while the USA invasions were also bad, they were generally against unpopular governments hated by their people, and you saw people in the streets celebrating in the early days. And I said maybe on RT you see the same. But actually I haven't really seen much on RT.

But I was just wondering if from alt sources, there are pics vids of Ukraine welcoming Russia as liberators?


The heavily populated seperatist regions welcomed Russia back at the dawn of the conflict, but Ukrainian administration retconned those areas as being of Russia from the start to invalidate claims that many Ukraine citizens welcomed Russian troops. Liberating these regions from Zelesnky was a driving goal behind the invasion because even after following the "democratic process", Ukraine still denied the seperatists any change, and then cut off services and support for those communities, throwing them in to poverty.


Received 5 packs of Oreos (16 cookies each) as part of the humanitarian aid. Ukrainian plant which was making it was bombed so maybe that's the reason.

While inspecting it, I found out that almost everything is written in Hebrew language. Haven't eaten them yet so can't testify.


>But I was just wondering if from alt sources, there are pics vids of Ukraine welcoming Russia as liberators?
besides the fireworks at the start there's lots of footage of locals giving passing BMPs bread and pallets of eggs, and you may remember in kiev the footage of paranoid neighbors reporting each other in case they were out placing markers for cruise missiles


any footage of NEW areas of liberated Ukraine cheering in the streets?


Russia is a oil & gas company with a country attached to it


So I hear a lot about Russia's longterm mistakes IE having a crappy army.

But what about its short-term mistakes? Starting from 2021. With the army it actually has, what did it do wrong? Should it have concentrated in one sector? Thrown everything at Kiev? Or just give up on Kiev and only focus on Donbas?


it was a political miscalculation that the zelensky regime would surrender, but it's apparently an easy decision for him to sacrifice ukrainians. the special operation was entirely a success, the ukrainian air force, radar sites, and airports were either destroyed or captured on day 1. it's not a victory to have a column of vehicles sitting outside your capital


The entire Russian Kiev front collapsed. At most it could be called a diversion from Donbas, but it didn't even do that successfully, it didn't help Russia make breakthroughs on other fronts


your mistake is in presuming it was a military front, when it was intended to put political pressure on the kiev government to surrender. there was no collapse, they just drove off after sitting there unopposed for weeks


Putin beat ukraine soon and find zelensky please sk we can the markets back to normal


According to the international law, it's the occupant who should service the occupied territories. Despite this Ukrainian government provided pensions which led to situation when the same people had been receiving two pensions: one from Russia and one from Ukraine.


As a (western) eurofag:
It's so tiresome. I didn't understand this virus thing, but it was comfy most of the time. As a NEET I could avoid most the most state-induced repercussions. But now, this worldwide-crisis thing is getting too far. The old saying: "Avoid news!" - I feel more and more unable to apply it, since I'm an internets addict but too dumb and lazy for places which completely ignore it because they have some high iq things to do, or a least a time-consuming hobby. Bad time for fucked up attention span.


I followed the war closely when it first started, but now its just background noise, maybe its not the same in EU


>The old saying: "Avoid news!"
This is an old saying? Man, I wish it was said more often, because I've only realized this recently.

as someone who might have OCD, knowing I can minutely map out the area where I (would)live,makes me see commiblock cities as comfy.
house-based neighborhoods seem so extrovertely imposing and threatening


i actually like the housing


>being stuck in a tiny cube that is surrounded by other cubes full of people at all times

what the fuck are you smoking? Russia seems similarly crazy to live in these towers when they have literally the most land of any country on Earth.


beats the way the us does things

-rural, nowhere near anything
-suburb, in a bullshit rat maze housing zone that still manages to somehow be near no stores
-city, where the cost of everything is so insane

although it's still full of problems. like old guys paying their life savings just to get an apartment only to end up with a half finished apartment where nothing works. some kind of compromise between western quality and russian utility would be best


I like my suburb. No housing tracts here, and things are close enough to walk or bike ride.


is forced military "service" still a thing in russia?
how do russian wizzies avoid it?


Ask them yourself (better to use /nsfw/ board since politics and politic related topics tend to be deleted on the other ones)



I used to think they were superior to wizchan because they never talked about succubi, politics or sex at all, that they ascended to full monkhood, but now it turns out it was all in the NSFW


you can avoid anything in Russia if you pay the right bribes to the right people.


Depending on the region, it can be quite nice. Moscow is a fucking hellhole full of normies, but as you move away from it, you will find hundreds of nice towns and cities.


Was it easy to dodge military service? Did you get any trouble for it afterwards, like are you on some record that makes things harder for you? I'm just curious.
Good job doing it anyway, it's not worth it to become a slave to a government that doesn't really give a shit about you. And this applies to every single country.


do people really do krokodil in bug numbers over there?or is it just usa propanda about le ebil russians?


Not really, no. Krokodil is a big thing in US media because it produces a shocking picture and generates clicks, but almost no one uses it anymore. Although, to be honest, there are now drugs in circulation that make krokodil look tame.


> there are now drugs in circulation that make krokodil look tame.
do you have any more info on this?even on russian language, I can google-translate it.
I cant imagine something that makes a literal flesh eating demon look "tame"


Alpha-pvp. Does to your soul what krokodil does to your flesh.


I haven't watched or read RT in awhile but I think if they had it they would be showing it off.


Russia expected the east of Ukraine to welcome them with open arms and support and supply them. It didn't happen though, east of Ukraine is less pro-Russia than it was in 2014. I think this war is also driving more anti-Russian sentiment in the east, if your house or someone you know gets bombed by an invader it usually turns the person against the invader, which is what has happened in places like Mariupol and Kharkov, Russia has just hammered them, Mariupol specifically because they wanted some land corridor and to block some trading from Ukraine, they are just a piece in a game to Russia.

are there any battle of nations/HEMA clubs in moscow that are tougher than in evurope?
im asking because the few events i seen from russia seem more full-contact,and less point-based


Yes, it was pretty easy. Just forged medical documents. No problems becouse NEETing.


I noticed only food (and other everyday stuff) variety changes in stores; that's because I'm poor and rarely buy anything else. Good products slowly disappear and get replaced by lower quality analogs. From what I've heard things are pretty bad with everything high-tech and electronics, car industry is fucked. And all prices pretty much skyrocketed.
Russian Wiz


Mondelez International had a factory in Ukraine destroyed. Instead of milk chocolate Корона (lit. Crown; brand originated in Ukraine), I've eaten the same Karuna made in Lithuania. No Ukrainian language on the package, only Lithuanian, Estonian and Latvian. Same package design (except for letters) and taste.

Krasnodar sauce of one company was renamed into Ukrainian sauce. They claim the recipe also improved. Similar sauces have other names like Kherson, Dnistrianskyi, etc. Should've changed to that.

Russian cheese shouldn't be called Banderite cheese. Moscow stole that cheese after stealing Koenigsberg from their Nazi buddies. It should be called Tilsit cheese like in the majority of civilized countries.


so what is it like in russia right now? are you guys afraid you might get drafted?


A starving holocaust survivor died because you ate her oreo allocation! I hope you're happy, hitler!
