>Wagner has more recruits than they need currently

Wagner tactics literally involve sending waves of people to their death to deplete Ukrainians of ammunition and locate their soldiers. There's probably over a hundred videos demonstrating this just at Bakhmut alone. The idea that Wagner doesn't need new recruits is laughable.

But then again, most things tankies say are laughable

BBC themselves found Russia has suffered only 12k casualties (potentially 60% more) by mid Jan, so worst case it's around 20k. We had Ursula herself confirm 100k Ukrainian soldier deaths way back in November.

So either those "suicide squads" are really damn effective or maybe, just maybe, listening only to Ukraine propaganda doesn't really fully explain how shock troops that identify targets to shell really work. Because as it turns out its really damn effective and a whole lot better than Ukraines tactic of sending waves of troops to sit in trenches to eat shells.
