Putin’s 300,000 new recruits face horror carb-filled diet on the frontline

As Russia's despotic President Vladimir Putin demands a further 300,000 reservist are forced into the army to fight his losing war in Ukraine, those are the ground will be there to initiate them into the hell they are about to face.

And one of the aspects the new recruits will face is a less-than-appealing carb-filled diet.

When Russia's invasion first start in February, Ukrainian soldiers took great delight in filming – and posting online – about captured Russian vehicles.

One of those captured as a battlefield kitchen.

A video taken by Ukrainian soldiers and posted on Reddit at the time showed a huge KamAZ armoured vehicle kitted out with a professional kitchen onboard.

But it's the contents of the cupboards – and floor – which has shocked internet users.

The footage gave a tour of the vehicle, captured in Ukraine, which was seemingly left in a shocking state during fighting.

The storage unit part of the truck showed bags upon bags of potatoes and onions, while the kitchen itself – seemingly ransacked by locals – showed more bags of potatoes and onions.

The soldier, speaking in Ukrainian over the tour, also found more and more bags of the same two vegetables on the floor, piled high.

He then opened a few drawers to find crockery and one other food item – such as jars of pickles.

The large jars were actually smashed, so the pickles could not be eaten or re-used in any way.

There was also a plastic box filled with different seasoning and spices, to presumably provide some variety to the very basic meals the Russian soldiers were, and still are, apparently being given.

The variety, or lack thereof, was a source of amusement for those on Reddit.

One user, Dlec1, wrote: “Bubba gumps potato restaurant – we got fried taters, baked taters, boiled taters, cajun taters…”

And another user, Squirrel-bear, pointed out that the contents of the truck might not be all the food the soldiers were being given.

Taking a more pragmatic approach to the video, he wrote: “The ingredients are most likely stored in another truck.

“Pretty weird there were potatoes on the floor, maybe it was on today's menu.

“Soldiers might also eat combat rations and potatoes might be just supplement for it.”

The shocking food choice came at the same time a Russian soldier posted a video of his rations online, which showed that they went out of date in 2015.

The new recruits might want to stock up on food before they arrive . . .
