MOSCOW, RUSSIA: In a bizarre move that is quite natural to Russian ways of functioning, the country is punishing men by sending them to the front lines in Ukraine after they fail to pay child maintenance. As per a Kremlin mouthpiece, Sochi, one particular city that has intrigued officials after several reports have been filed by disgruntled mothers is actively ordering men to serve at the front lines. This was claimed by TV propagandist Margarita Simonyan, who also added that some women are proactively going after some of these men by "providing to enlistment officers details of their former partners" who haven’t responded to courts order in divorce settlements.

Former Army pin-up Dana Borisova has also called for her own ex-husband with whom she is in a legal dispute. The ex-Playboy model is running into a legal confrontation with her former partner in regard to support for their teenage daughter. “I have a [...] non-payer of alimony living in my neighbour's house - the father of my daughter,” alleged Borisova, now a TV presenter. She added, “Unfortunately, he did not yet receive a [military] summons. I sincerely think that it would be great if he showed responsibility, if not in relation to his daughter, then at least in relation to his country,” as reported by Daily Mail.

The 46-year-old firmly believes, “Non-payers can only be taught by being sent to the front line… If not this, then what else can fix them?” Borisova was lauded as a "national institution," a pinup for Russian soldiers at 22, and was given credit for boosting draftee morale in a TV program called Army Store that was supported by the Defense Ministry.

A staunch Putin supporter, Simonyan spoke on video about loyalist Sochi mayor Alexey Kopaygorodsky, 37, who is after defaulting fathers and enlisting them to the front lines. She said, “[The Mayor of Sochi told me that] we took a list of persistent non-payers of alimony from the bailiffs and sent them [to the front]. People who do not repay their debt even to their children will now not only do that but also will pay child support from very decent military payments.”

“And these people will repay their Motherland. The most interesting thing is that we do not see a single complaint from Sochi,” she continued. Prominent Russian music producer Iosif Prigozhin, 53, has jumped in the support as well, saying, “A man should be responsible to a woman, whom he then leaves with a child.” “It's not enough to learn how to **** - you still need to be responsible. I say this as a father of six children.”

The Russian army has suffered major setbacks in the war and Putin is trying to increase the numbers by partially mobilizing youth all over the country. The defense minister has also recently added that they are planning to recruit 300,000 troops soon.
