This is also pretty shocking...
The Russian side of Donetsk is giving their called-up soldiers rifles designed in the 1890s. If anything should tell them that Russia doesn't give a shit about them and they're just a convenient excuse, that should be it.
Ukraine also uses a machine gun which is over 100 years old but they have a reason for that - it has a water cooling so it can shoot for extended period of time.
As for those guys - I guess time will tell if their weapons are as effective when they meet Ukrainians with their shiny new m4a1.
There are some weapons that make sense and some that don’t. A sniper with a Mosin with a good scope, sure. For untrained infantry it’s as much a death sentence now as it was in Stalingrad
