Deserter Glukhov has got a mate2009-07-02 20:28
In the nearest days, the story of desertion of Dmitri Artemiev, a common soldier, is going to get proper public coloration and become the subject of further discussions. However, it is high time that the Russian military commanders answered the question why and on what grounds regular soldiers are serving their military obligations in South Ossetia, becoming the victims of non-manual relations.
On the eve of Hitlerite Germany's treacherous attack against the USSR, there were several cases of desertion on the part of the German soldiers who, having crossed the border, tried to warn the Soviet military command of the pending war. No one knows what happened to those servicemen afterwards. Perhaps, they were considered double agents with all ensuing consequences.
The truth is that those German anti-fascists ventured their lives for the sake of the communist idea.
As to Dmitri Artemiev, a common soldier having deserted to Georgia from his military unit, he never intended to warn the Georgian army of any treacherous attacks against Georgia, for the Russian army is not preparing any such attacks.
Still, the cases of the Russian servicemen deserting from their units are not singular in the Russian army. Regrettably, despite the Army command's numerous assurances of the proper level of the military personnel upbringing, the non-manual relations often force the young soldiers to desert their unit.
Up to recently, these "involuntary deserters" used to run away to their parents or "the soldiers' mothers" seeking their help.
No one has been struck by an idea to run to Estonia or Finland, not to mention Ukraine, Belarus or the republics of Middle Asia. And now we have got a country in the post-Soviet territory that is eager to receive the Russian soldiers and is ready to grant them asylum, as well as citizenship, though the newly-made deserters are not guided by any ideological reasons.
