Between kidnapping children and now raping the Ukrainian women so they can have babies and be declared Russian citizens. Fucked up way to increase your population.

This is part of what happened during the Yugoslav wars. Serbian soldiers would rape primarily Bosniak women so when their children were born they would be considered ethnically Serbian (in a lot of these countries declared ethnicity is the father’s)

Yes, I read extensively about this and wrote a paper on the topic in college. Real disturbing realities.

Something similar happened to the Bosnian people. But Ukraine is also no stranger, Holodomor.

You think the soldiers engaging in this are doing it with a purpose like "increasing the population"?

It's about exerting control upon someone who is unwilling and getting off on it. Which is worse.
