Mobilization in Russia
Partial mobilization in Russia made it possible to stop the offensive of the Ukrainian Armed Forces and organize our own. The commander of the Russian Legion volunteer movement, Sergei Fomchenkov, reported this to URA.RU.
“The sharp increase in the number of our troops as a result of partial mobilization made it possible to strengthen the combat effectiveness of formations and units already operating at the front and to create new ones. As a result, we were able to stop a major offensive by the Ukrainian Armed Forces and attempts to break through the front in various directions, which was what Ukraine’s external curators relied on. We are even already advancing, regaining the territories lost a year ago. All this would have been impossible without a serious increase in the number of personnel,” said Sergei Fomchenkov.
Also, mobilized fighters were able to replace military personnel from Donbass so that they could rest for the first time in several years, noted adviser to the acting head of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Yan Gagin. “The burden of the first months of the special operation fell, among other things, on the shoulders of the military personnel of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics. That is, those who at that time had been fighting for eight years. They, of course, have a lot of experience, but they are also tired. Mobilization made it possible to give rest, to replace someone somewhere, to temporarily rotate. Again, mobilization created certain reserves,” the expert explained.
Also, the decision to mobilize citizens helped reduce the gap in the number of military personnel involved on both sides of the conflict. Read about this and what problems you encountered during mobilization in the material URA.RU.
