NOTE: Oborona is reporting that it has been told by the Committee for Soldier's Mothers that Oleg Kozlovsky (pictured) has been examined at a military hospital in Ryazan and been classified as having only "limited" fitness for military duty. This "Class V" status means that he can only be called to duty in time of war. A number of Russian news outlets, including Echo of Moscow Radio and the New Times newspaper have picked up the story. We have our fingers crossed that is it true, and that is so the Kremlin will deign to follow it's own laws and discharge Oleg immediately.
NOTE: You may have noticed that we are experimenting with putting up a bit more content per day but publishing every other day so that what we publish stays on our splash page a bit longer. If you have any thoughts on this, be sure to let us know.
NOTE: Back online after (absurdly) honoring Russia's (crazy) long drunken orgy of New Year's, the mighty Moscow Times deluges us with brilliant content, as shown above.
