Russian reservists arrive in Ukraine
According to the Defense Ministry, Russian reservists who were forced to join Putin’s army have begun arriving in Ukraine.
A statement released yesterday said: “The first tranches of men called up as part of Russia’s partial mobilization have started to reach military bases. Many tens of thousands of draft papers have already been issued.
“Russia now faces an administrative and logistical challenge to train the troops.
“Unlike most Western armies, the Russian military provides soldiers with basic, low-level training within their designated operational units rather than at specialized training facilities.
“Typically, one battalion within each Russian brigade remains garrisoned when the other two are stationed, and can provide a cadre of instructors to train new recruits or reinforcements. However, Russia deployed many of these third battalions to Ukraine.
“Many of the conscripted troops will not have had any military experience for several years.
“The lack of military trainers and the haste with which Russia has begun mobilization suggest that many of the troops conscripted will be transferred to the front lines with minimal relevant preparation. You will likely experience a high turnover rate.”
