What influence does the Russian partial mobilization have on the course of the war? The head of the German Reservist Association sees the Russian army as "rather weakened than strengthened". In any case, it was "inhuman" to send 300,000 reservists to the front.
The President of the German Reservists Association, Patrick Sensburg, considers the partial mobilization of 300,000 reservists by Russian President Vladimir Putin for the war against Ukraine to be inhuman. "The partial mobilization will not bring Putin enough soldiers for his war," he told the editorial network Germany. "Many contracts for Russian soldiers will expire in the next few weeks, and the large number of soldiers who have died will also have to be replaced."
Sensburg added: "Sending such poorly prepared soldiers into a war is inhuman and will be a military disaster for Russia. In my view, the Russian troops will actually be weakened rather than strengthened." Because even reservists would have to be well trained and prepared.
President Vladimir Putin had previously ordered Russia's first mobilization since World War II. The mobilization is officially described as partial mobilization for the time being, in which 300,000 reservists from the largest country in the world are to be gradually drafted over a period of several months. Overall, Russia has two million reservists.
