Propagandist Margarita Simonyan suggested that “wealthy people” in Russia arrange a “flash mob”: choose 100 Russians who were called up as part of the mobilization, and, in fact, buy them: pay them monthly as much as the rich “can afford”.
“Prosperous people, join!” she urged in her Telegram channel.
As an example, she cited ex-Minister of Agriculture Alexander Tkachev, who, according to her, "is already ready to pay 25,000 rubles a month to 300 mobilized Kuban fellow countrymen."
Simonyan herself said that she also "invested" in the idea. True, she did not specify how much people who will be mobilized for the war in Ukraine will be paid.
At the same time, the Ministry of Defense earlier stated that within the framework of mobilization they would not call on “full-time employees” of backbone media with higher education: war propagandists avoided it.
Neither deputies, nor officials, nor their children will go to war. The host of the Popular Politics program, created by supporters of Alexei Navalny, Dmitry Nizovtsev got through on the air to the son of the press secretary of Russian President Dmitry Peskov, Nikolai. Under the guise of a military commissar, he informed Nikolai Choles about the sent summons and offered to appear for a medical examination. Peskov's son replied to this: “You must understand, if you know that I am Mr. Peskov, how not entirely correct it is for me to be there. In short, I will solve it on a different level.”
