Occupiers in Ukraine are suffering significant losses in personnel, so mobilization may be announced in Russia. But, most likely, Vladimir Putin will not dare to do this.

This was told by Advisor to the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, head of the Lazar BO Rostislav Smirnov. In his opinion, Russia will not take such a step for several reasons.

Why won't mobilization be announced in Russia

According to Smirnov, mobilization is war. It is not for nothing that Russia calls a full-scale attack on Ukraine a “special operation”. If Russians are asked if they support, a significant number of people give an affirmative answer. However, if we talk specifically about the wording “war”, then for their understanding it is different.

Help.According to the results of a poll by the Levada Center, as of the end of April, after 2 months of war with Ukraine, 74% of Russians support Russia's attack on Ukraine and the actions of the occupying forces. 19% of respondents do not support such actions.

The second reason is that if mobilization is announced, this may have negative consequences in Russian society. People will begin to doubt the effectiveness of the actions of the Russian military, because now they are sure that the losses of their army personnel in Ukraine are not great.

Mobilization will probably be the last thing Putin will do, – said the adviser to the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

According to Smirnov, partial mobilization is possible in Russia, but hidden. We are talking about the spring call for military service. Contracts are either voluntarily or involuntarily signed with them.

However, it should be understood that the quality of such mobilization will be quite low, because these are conscripts who do not have serious training and motivation.

“They see the losses, they will also know about it. Perhaps the society does not always know this, because television does not talk about this. However, the military themselves know everything very well, because they see” 200 “, – added the adviser to the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
