  1. I don't think you can be prepared for this in advance. And I don't think that the older generation was ready to pay this price, especially in the end, they were not asked whether they were ready or not. And modern conscripts will also not be asked too much, and they don't ask (well, someone asked Pskov paratroopers, do they want to end up in unmarked graves that they don't even dare to recognize?).�

    And the main lesson of that terrible war and one of the main values of that terrible sacrifice is the need to prevent a repeat of the great war. Because in the next one, the civilization may simply die and no sacrifice will be enough.

  2. The question does not lie in the “ready – not ready”plane. Individuals voluntarily climb a tank with a grenade, and the state sends all the others to fight together (and in the army, state representatives are commanders who indicate where to run and whom to shoot). Given that humans are conformists, almost everyone involved in the battles will run and shoot. Without particularly bothering to think about the willingness to sacrifice and the number of victims.

  3. If we hypothetically imagine such a fantastic situation that there are no nuclear weapons in the world, and our country was attacked, say, by China: I think that our people would also show valor and heroism, and feats of valor. The casualties would certainly have been enormous, especially in the first stages of such a war, but people are always people. When the enemy tramples the land at war, destroys and kills everyone around them-people are fighting not for the government, but for the Motherland. And in 1812 and 1941-45, this was the case. So I think it would be the same now, people haven't changed so much since then that anything has changed.

  4. First, is there a threat? I, for example, do not see it even on very distant approaches. And it would be good to set the following task for the elected and regularly re-elected authorities: not to allow a situation where such a threat appears somewhere on the horizon. In today's world, this goal is achieved quite easily – through cooperation, trust, and openness.�

    And secondly, the destruction of a generation, especially a young one , is not a price, it is the destruction of the country.

  5. Such a war is no longer possible. It will end too quickly with nuclear weapons. Generations do not decide anything,but I can tell you that the fighting fervor in Russia is one of the most powerful in the world,as it was,and remains, but it has been encouraging pieces of meat to run to their deaths for 40 years. This is not something that the combat readiness of the United States or Germany, our relatives, throws up a cancer of patriotism inside.�

    “If we looked more often at how similar we are than how different we are,we wouldn't be caught up in this damn war in the first place!” David Draiman at the music as a weapon concert. I will refrain from saying anything about the military affairs of our country, because I have already said and argued about it a thousand times.

  6. Then people were no different from today. Everyone had plans, dreams. No one wanted to fight and die.
    It was just a pointless question. Or some of them will die(those who will fight)”or all of them.
    In our village in Karelia, half of the inhabitants were killed in a day because they were Russian.�
    The rest, seeing the situation, abandoned everything and went to war. My grandfather told me how the political commissar expelled boys under the age of 14 from the military registration and enlistment office. Women and children were asked to go to factories to make weapons.
    If something like this starts now, mama's boys will see their mother's guts on the ruins of their house – how cute, pacifists will cut off their dreadlocks, wash off their makeup and go to war. Yes, so to fight that our grandfathers did not even dream of.
