Russian Officials Suggest 5 MILLION Troops Needed to Fight Ukraine

Linkedin Share

It should come as no surprise to anyone that Russia is turning rather desperate in Ukraine, but some of the latest assessments coming out of the Kremlin are just plain kooky.

The invasion of Ukraine hasn’t been going Moscow’s way at all, with continual and humiliating defeats, desertions, and destruction raining down on Russian soldiers from the start.  This had forced the Kremlin to forcibly conscript 300,000 citizens this week, despite the fact that they didn’t appear able to actually arm and train them.

Now, almost unbelievably, at least one Russian official is calling for more citizens to draft…and a whole of them.

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reports that the military and political command of Russia is spreading a document called “Conclusions of the war with NATO in Ukraine” among the military. It is stated in the document that 5 million Russian troops must be deployed in order for Russia to win.

Quote: “A part of this ‘masterpiece’ [‘Conclusions of the war with NATO in Ukraine’ – ed.] among other things focuses of the main problems of the Russian occupying forces such as the commanders’ inability to command troops, low level of discipline and military training, obsolescence of armament and military equipment, commanders’ inability to make decisions without obligatorily coordinating them with higher command etc. Meanwhile it is stated in every document that the Defence Forces of Ukraine have a quite high level of equipment, and commanders on all levels can make decisions in combat conditions themselves.

There wasn’t much “wiggle room” in the statement.

It is also stated in the document that there has not been such a war in the previous 80 years, and Russia needs its army to consist of nearly 5 million troops in order to win.”

Of course, given how quickly these latest Russian conscripts surrendered and/or mutinied, there may not really be a number at which Ukraine would be overwhelmed.
