Mobilization / military draft / recruitment in Russia

Memes invoking the mobilization or recruitment of Russian soldiers for the war against Ukraine typically imply that the state apparatus does not care about the people it is sending into war. Memes of this content type will occasionally invoke Soviet-style propaganda posters. Memes about mobilization orders will often point to the ubiquity of the summonses, appearing on cigarette packages, for example. Memes of this type, too, will usually point to the eventual outcome of being sent to Russia's war against Ukraine — death for the soldier and a car or fur coat for his family.
