Putin still dreams of this: are the Russians able to reach the administrative borders of the Donetsk region
Bloomberg reports that Russia is going to recruit another 400,000 contract soldiers for the war against Ukraine. So he will try to solve one of his strategic tasks.
This was told to Channel 24 by a military expert, Colonel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Vladislav Seleznev. According to him, Russia really has a significant mobilization potential. But it is very doubtful that ordinary Russians will agree to voluntarily go to die for the whims of dictator Vladimir Putin.
Almost 170 thousand “200” Russians. A big number. Experts say that closer to May there will already be 200,000 destroyed invaders. It is obvious that Putin is dreaming of implementing a plan to enter the administrative borders of the Donetsk region,” Seleznev said.
According to Seleznev, Putin does not have the strength and means to completely seize the territories of the Donetsk region, where active battles are now continuing.
Will Russia be able to recruit another 400,000 contract soldiers?
As Seleznev noted, the question here is not only the desire of the Russians to go to war, but also the ability of the Russian economy and the military-industrial complex to provide for all the needs of the occupying troops.
When they say the figure of 400 thousand people who must voluntarily go on a contract, then there are questions … But where did the regular army of 200 thousand people go first? And then 320 thousand mobilized. Won't another 400,000 ask themselves this question? Seleznev noted.
According to some reports, Russia has the ability to simultaneously provide training for 100-110 thousand people, including training grounds in Belarus. This is a pretty significant number. And it should be understood that the occupiers still have a certain potential. Therefore, you need to work hard to win the war.
