1/6. The Russian invasion of Ukraine is also, in a sense, a Russian imperial war on its own non-Russian minorities.
2/6. In the first offensive the soldiers sent to die were largely Asians.
3/6. In the mobilisation the people forced to serve will also be largely Asians.
4/6. And so Asian men from the Russian Federation go to die in a war whose only success for Putin is the mass deportation of Ukrainian women and children.

6/6. Russia becomes "whiter," which is something Putin cares about.
