For the complete liberation of Ukraine, Russia will need no more than 1 million troops


Partial mobilization, announced on September 21 by President Putin, officially ended on the eve of October 28, 2022. Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu reported to the Supreme Commander that the task to call up 300 reservists had been successfully completed. However, it is curious that, from a legal point of view, mobilization is still in effect. What could this mean?


The fact that mobilization in Russia is practically inevitable began to be said six months ago. This was objectively due to the relatively modest outfit of forces allocated by the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation for the special operation, the huge length of the front line, as well as the next wave of mobilization launched by Kyiv, which more than doubled the number of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Unfortunately, the combination of these factors made itself felt already at the end of August 2022, when the Ukrainian army itself switched from defense to counteroffensive, and the Russian army had to leave the entire previously liberated territories in the Kharkiv region, as well as a number of settlements in the north of Donbass and in Kherson areas.

The forced surrender of Balakleya, Kupyansk and Izyum became that “red line”, after which the Supreme Commander simply had to take the unpopular decision to start partial mobilization. Without attracting additional reserves to the front, the problem became not only to advance further, but even to keep what had already been won back. The most interesting question is how many military personnel really need to be mobilized in order to fulfill the tasks of the special operation set by the president?

Everything will depend on what exactly the Kremlin wants. If the task of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation was set only to liberate the entire Donbass and the Sea of ​​\u300b\uXNUMXbAzov, and then go on the defensive, fencing off Ukraine with defensive ramparts and minefields, then XNUMX thousand will be enough. True, this does not remove the threat that subsequently Kyiv may further increase the number of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, having received the most modern types of shock weapons, and go on a large-scale offensive, breaking through the front, no matter how well it is fortified.

If the task is to once and for all neutralize the threat posed to Russia and its new and old regions from Ukraine, then the number of Ground Forces of the RF Armed Forces directly involved in the NMD should be increased to 1 million people. Then on the territory of union Belarus it will be possible to have a grouping with a total number of 300-400 thousand people. Somewhere near Brest, a strike should be made on Volhynia and Galicia - through Lutsk, Rivne and Lvov to Uzhgorod, which will interrupt the supply lines of the Armed Forces of Ukraine from the countries of the NATO bloc. Simultaneously with this strike, distractions can be delivered: from the territory of Belarus to Chernigov with the subsequent creation of a threat to Kyiv so that the Armed Forces of Ukraine cannot concentrate on deblocking their western border, and in the Nikolaev-Odessa direction from near Kherson, which must be kept at almost any cost. Once completely surrounded and without the supply of NATO weapons, ammunition, fuel and fuel, the Kyiv regime will be doomed.

The idea is great, but its implementation rests precisely on the lack of resources that were involved in the special operation by the Russian Ministry of Defense. So the question is, why not then call for mobilization not 300 thousand, but 1 million reservists?

The answer is simple and complex at the same time. The problem is that the mobilization system of modern Russia for the first time faced such a large-scale task and was not quite ready for it. Numerous mistakes and “excesses on the ground” began, which, to be fair to the authorities, were recognized and began to be quickly corrected. It turned out that 1,5 million sets of uniforms and ammunition for reservists had disappeared somewhere from the warehouses, and now the domestic light industry is being rebuilt for army needs. For such a mass of conscripted military personnel, experienced commanders are needed, technique.

Since partial mobilization is taking place here for the first time, 300 is objectively the ceiling of what the system can “digest” here and now. Plus, let's not forget that, in time, partial mobilization overlapped with the planned call-up of conscripts, which even had to be postponed. It should start right now, after completing the task of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, and no new one is planned, as Sergei Shoigu explained in his report to the Supreme Commander-in-Chief:

In the course of partial mobilization, more than 1300 representatives of executive authorities of various levels, over 27 entrepreneurs were called up and sent to the troops. 13 thousand citizens, without waiting for summonses, expressed a desire to fulfill their duty and were sent to the troops as volunteers. The average age of mobilized citizens was 35 years.

After completing the training, 82 people were sent to the area of ​​the special military operation, of which more than 41 operate as part of units. Those who participate in combat operations will receive the status of a combat veteran and a corresponding package of social benefits. The dispatch of citizens called for mobilization was completed today. Citizen notification has been discontinued. The task set by you - 300 thousand people - has been fulfilled. No additional tasks are planned. The military commissariats, as part of a special military operation, will continue to recruit troops only by accepting volunteers and candidates for military service under a contract.

It turns out that everything, partial mobilization is completed, and can 35-40-year-old men stop running crosses in the morning?
Probably yes. Or maybe not.

The nuance lies in the fact that legally the mobilization regime announced by the Presidential Decree is still in effect, and it can only be canceled by the Demobilization Decree. The Decree on the beginning of partial mobilization does not specify how many military personnel should be mobilized. On the contrary, paragraph 7, devoted to this issue, has a regime “for official use”, therefore it is impossible for mere mortals to get acquainted with it, one can only take the word of Shoigu and Peskov. Today they are talking about 300 thousand, because the situation in the South-East of Ukraine is the same, but by winter, you see, they will talk differently when the situation on the fronts changes again. And that's okay. War is a way of deceit, and nowhere do they lie as much as in war.

When and how much to call up reservists, the Supreme Commander-in-Chief will decide on the basis of reports from the Minister of Defense and based on the tasks of the special operation. If he decides to limit himself to the defense of the Donbass and the Azov region, then the mobilized 300 thousand military personnel will be enough. If the president sets the task of liberating the entire territory of Ukraine, then no more than 1 million military personnel will be required to do this. So, we will be informed in due time.

    Today is not the time of the Second World War, when the number and number of divisions are needed, today we need specialists in weapons and weapons, victories are achieved with high-precision and technological weapons. How things are with high-precision weapons does not seem to matter, bearing in mind the consumption of ammunition in 50 tons of shots per day with minimal results. Over time, such mistakes and inconsistencies are corrected, only the thousands of fighters responsible for the blood do not bear responsibility, this is already a clear danger to statehood, because the system does not work in the right way today and crashes ..

      1 million? Do not make me laugh. Campaign and think the criteria of the Second World War. This war is technological, where the success of military operations is ensured not by mass offensives, but by ultra-precise and fast operations in certain sectors of the front, which disable control systems, decision-making, supply centers, enemy support, etc. and all this is done under the control of headquarters located in general in other parts of the world, which control the troops, through satellites, special communications and the Internet. And with us, as usual, let's recruit 1 million mobile phones, which did not even hold weapons in their hands, and many of them are not "friendly" with the Internet, and they will defeat everyone. Yes, they only need to be prepared for at least half a year. And about the equipment that should be for modern warfare and which is not in the Russian troops, it is generally silent - its creation and entry into the troops in the right quantities take years!

      Let's be honest, that 1,5 million kits were never brought into warehouses, and were not even produced ...

      Why should we repeat the mantra of the thieving officials of the Moscow Region, who torn apart the cash register even at the stage of distributing funds?

    If only Donbass is liberated, then the war will not stop at all, but will continue, and having accumulated equipment and mobilized APU, it will simply switch to a powerful attack and break through all the Wagner lines and so on. they sculpted the dead for us, there are 5900-3 times more losses, if not even higher than the figure, plus the wounded and how many thousands more will be killed and maimed, God alone knows. In the spring, there will definitely be another wave of mobilization and maybe with numbers more than 4 tons.
    PS: after listening to the president's Valdai speech, Peskov promised us a historical one, I got even more questions than I had.
    And if, as he said, we haven’t started yet, then I’m even afraid to write my thoughts.

        It's good that you searched and posted! But there is one point! From 3,5 thousand, take about 30-40% of those wounded who will not return a second time. This is 1,5 thousand, maybe less, and we will get 5 thousand. + 5 \u10d 7. The total is 3,5 thousand killed with those who left. Comparable with the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine 10500-20 thousand killed and departed We get 125: 130 (1) If the Armed Forces of Ukraine lose at least 6-6,3 people per day, then it is not difficult to calculate how many per month! It is clear that everything is about me! But I don’t think that our losses will differ much from approximate calculations. In a couple of thousand, yes

    Why do we need 1 million mobilized, maybe 2 million??? If there is a question of numbers, let them take the security forces, there are 5 million of them, they will take half, it will be 2,5 million. The security forces are healthy, trained, they will drive the Nazis all over Ukraine. Seriously, without determining what the Russian Federation wants, the war cannot be won. To win one million is not enough.

      In Soviet times, there were no guards in stores, and grandmothers with berdanok guarded the warehouses ("Operation Y" showed that it was quite effective smile ). And now, in all stores, hefty boobies sit behind monitors, several people per shift. Moreover, some of them know how to handle weapons and have permission to do so. Or maybe it’s worth replacing them with women who will look better at the monitor of surveillance systems than these degenerates? And we will have a whole millionth army of their former guards.

    The number of fronts that liberated Ukraine in the Second World War was approximately 3 million soldiers and officers. What a hell of a million. We need at least another 100 thousand trained soldiers every month. Officers must be taken from combat soldiers who distinguished themselves in battles. soldiers and sergeants were also given officer shoulder straps. Unlike the Supreme, the majority of the population understood that they were not brothers to us

      Officers must be taken from combat soldiers who have distinguished themselves in battle

      The officer of the modern army is a specialty that requires higher education in the field of modern combat management, as well as knowledge and skills in many special areas that determine success and survival in all types of modern combat, and which, of course, soldiers do not own. You can really send such soldiers to train in the specialty of an officer.
      BUT
      The quality of an officer and the success in combat of the units he will command are directly dependent on the time and effort that was spent on his training and internship in the troops. You can't go around the laws of life on a "crooked goat". Accelerated training and graduation is in any case months, and at the same time, due to the low qualification of commanders on the battlefield, the losses of officers, soldiers and their equipment will increase significantly, maybe several times. Russia will bleed even faster.
      It will no longer be possible to directly compensate for the damage to Russia's defense capability from the Putin-Serdyukov reform for this war - there is no time. Another way is needed.
      He is. This is forcing the Anglo-Saxons to retreat in all positions by the threat of a nuclear war to their own home. Exactly what it was necessary to start a conversation with the Anglo-Saxons immediately after their refusal to fulfill our Ultimatum.

            The selection of commanders of all units must be thorough. Admission to military schools is only for deep special selection. Later promotion based on personal qualities. Now it has been replaced by admission to a higher educational institution according to marks (as in accounting courses), service with nepotism, corruption, nepotism, which is why we have the Lapin generals, who are well acquainted with the NGSh ... The son of a general, as a rule, is corporately promoted to general positions, although according to professional often does not correspond to the level and qualities. (as well as senior officials). In terms of junior staff, the recruitment of distinguished soldiers and sergeants, even after training, has always been fueled by enterprising and competent junior officers, which is a systematic phenomenon in all armies. . With the collapse of the former SA system by Serdyukovshchina (the main goal is to defeat the patriotic officer corps of the RF Armed Forces, as the last danger to the liberal colonial rule of the state), they created a castrated irresponsible swamp of service for money. The money is not very large and the contingent of the RF Armed Forces is weak and does not meet the high requirements for the armed forces of the state, which we see at the WZO - the RF Armed Forces do not even pull such a local war, they are looking for a way out by appealing to the Russian state and people, Conclusion: The system of the RF Ministry of Defense and the construction of the RF Armed Forces does not meet the requirements of the time and requests for state security. Fundamental changes are needed.

        Aleksey Davydov, are you sure that modern military universities train officers to be able to manage combat units in modern warfare, and not just on a headquarters map or on a training ground.
        Everyone was convinced that in Ryazan officers-paratroopers are perfectly trained when they received information about operations near Gostomel and near Kherson ....
        It is still difficult to say how tank officers and motorized riflemen are trained, there are no bright victories, but there are insulting retreats ...
        Frankly disappointed gunners and intelligence.
        The artillery of the Russian Federation, with multiple numerical superiority, turned out to be completely unprepared to conduct counter-battery combat, either technically or tactically.
        Intelligence seems to be completely absent in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, especially in the first months of the NMD, the army fought "blind", and where the vaunted 8 brigades of the GRU special forces were, only God knows and possibly even Shoigu ....
        Aerospace Forces showed themselves very poorly, there is no space satellite constellation from the word AT ALL (the merit of Mr. Rogozin)
        Aviation, having practically no opposition from the Ukrainian Air Force, was never able to suppress the outdated Soviet air defense, therefore it “presses close to the ground” and operates with small forces without having a significant impact on the course of hostilities.
        The Aerospace Forces during the NMD did not conduct a single major air operation to destroy groups of troops of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, military and transport infrastructure.
        The participation of the electronic warfare forces is virtually zero, except for the loss of modern technology, they did not distinguish themselves in anything else.
        Well done rocket and anti-aircraft gunners!
        I completely disappointed the Black Sea Fleet, it’s hard to even imagine a more mediocre use with zero "exhaust" and the loss of ships.

        The sergeants and foremen who received officer epaulettes proved in practice that they know how to fight themselves and know how to manage their subordinates, many of them replaced the dead and wounded commanders, saved people and completed combat missions.

    All this uniform, if it was so, was sold out a long time ago. They could easily sell it through the military departments or through commerce. A friend, when he served under a contract somewhere for 14-15 years, they give them a uniform of size 60, they say in the studio, give it back and sew it in, he sent it in three letters and to him they said, well, go to the voentorg buy there all sizes are there. ))) There are no warehouses, but they sold for grandmas.

    To win, it is necessary to change the strategy and, first of all, destroy the system of state administration at all levels, the communications system, the land water and air transport network, cut off the unhindered supply of Western military equipment, disable the most important industrial enterprises, etc., etc., and most importantly - no gas talk about negotiations that undermine faith in the armed forces of the Russian Federation and the possibility of denationalization and demilitarization of Ukraine

    This war will be a "black hole" of the Anglo-Saxons, devouring our people and equipment, WITH ANY VOLUME OF MOBILIZATION, because. the Anglo-Saxons, possessing the world's financial resources and the world's reservoir of manpower, can practically unlimitedly (from the point of view of our capabilities) increase both the number of mercenaries and the length and area of ​​​​the territories of hostilities, expanding the existing theater and opening new theaters.
    At the same time, they spend the money of the world (including ours) on expanding the production of military equipment and new jobs, becoming stronger and richer. Russia, on the contrary, has been put into a situation of exhaustion and exsanguination by them. Its defeat and surrender in such conditions is a matter of time.
    As a result of the Putin-Serdyukov reforms, the rejection of the traditional structure of the army for us with the abolition of regiments and divisions, led to the zeroing of the entire array of tactical and strategic plans developed earlier, the skills in command and control received by senior officers and generals in educational institutions, the experience of our victories in all previous wars. The size of the reduced army is clearly insufficient to confront NATO.
    There is only one way out of the situation - forcing the Anglo-Saxons by the threat of a nuclear war to their own territories to recall their gang and retreat in all positions

      In this case, there should always be two clearly differentiated steps (which the Russian leadership has never properly explained), first, the use of tactical weapons inside Ukraine to disarm and immobilize its army (NATO Article 5 will not apply because it is not NATO ). ) and, secondly, only as a strategic reserve in case NATO reacts to this first step.
      If this order were not very clear, then the tactical and strategic nuclear deterrence of Russia would not exist, because the protection of the Russian state would always be equivalent to argamedon (mutually assured destruction), that is, the destruction of the Russian state.

    Does the author suggest simply additionally calling up to a million office hamsters, merchants and hard workers from not very numerous enterprises into the trenches? That is, the number and not the skill? Without improving anything in the organization of hostilities?
    With this approach, the result is predictable. The West will proportionately increase the supply of modern high-precision weapons and ammunition to the Ukrainian front, the mercenaries who use it, will use as many resources of satellite combat support systems as necessary. The called million will be killed and maimed. Ukraine will not be taken, which in itself, alas, will not be the worst consequence for Russia.
    --
    Judging by the comments on the VO, what is missing in the organization of the NWO?
    First, classical military science orders to interrupt the logistics of the enemy army in the first place. In our case, the impact on Western Ukraine, through which the Armed Forces of Ukraine are supplied today, is insufficient:
    1) No work on tunnels, bridges, railway depots, etc.;
    2) The impact on Western Ukraine of the allied Belarusian army, which for the Western Ukrainians would objectively be an alternative to the Polish influence, and the Russian one too, is not organized. Aside from the Polish perspective espoused by Zelensky, Western Ukraine sees no other so far.
    Secondly, high-precision Western weapons without satellite constellations (reconnaissance, communications, positional) will turn into an analogue of Soviet weapons, if not worse. Therefore, to begin with (it will be seen later), it is necessary to make every possible effort to jam enemy satellites selectively over the territory of Ukraine. Obviously, among other things, this will require a sufficient number of controlled Russian jamming satellites.
    Thirdly, naturally, the Russian army needs a large number of modern high-precision weapons, drones of various classes. Why is it necessary to increase its own production and development using mobilization methods, and not spare money for imports. To massively train personnel in the use of these weapons, and in the corresponding tactics of military operations. Due to the insufficiency of the Russian satellite constellation and the predicted opposition to it by the enemy, to accelerate the development of primarily ground and air (via drones) systems for positioning and guiding high-precision weapons, the widespread introduction of ammunition with airborne AI, guided by terrain marks.
    Fourth, even more natural, the supply on OWN territory should work like clockwork. For nothing really interferes with him, except for individual episodes of the mess, the overcoming of which must be accelerated.

    Russia has an army of more than a million!!!!! And also the National Guard of three hundred thousand !!! And Wagner, mercenaries, volunteers, convicts from prisons, this is another hundred thousand !!! More mobiles from the DNR and LNR another hundred thousand!!! That's half a million! Half to send is 750 thousand!!! Died as Shoigu said in September 6 thousand. Okay now let's say 10 thousand!!

    Where is another 740 thousand?
    Why is mobilization necessary? Why drag mechanics and lawyers to the front taxi drivers?

    This is not about mobilizing a million and throwing them into a meat grinder. The fact is that people are wounded and killed in war, people get tired mentally and physically, weapons tend to break and wear out. People must be changed, weapons must be changed. For this, reserves are needed - people and weapons. People need to be educated. I hope we have enough instructors. So a million people just right. Moreover, we do not know what lies ahead for us after we have gained the upper hand in this war.

    And no one answered the question - why should we liberate this hostile territory ??? To then restore it, feed it, issue housing certificates???
    It is necessary to build defensive structures on the border, arm the border guards, build satellites to monitor the "Banderostan" around the clock, build drill aircraft. It is necessary to create a combat-ready army. But this is not all at the cost of the lives of our citizens !!!

    If he decides to limit himself to the defense of the Donbass and the Azov region, then the mobilized 300 thousand military personnel will be enough. If the president sets the task of liberating the entire territory of Ukraine, then no more than 1 million military personnel will be required to do this.

    And if it is decided to liberate the entire left-bank Ukraine, how many troops will be required?
    And if the left bank + Nikolaev and Odessa?
    On February 24, from the mouth of the GDP, one of the most terrible threats to Russia was the deployment of medium-range missiles near Kharkov, respectively, in order to stop this threat, Chernihiv, Sumy, Kharkov, Poltava, Dnepropetrovsk and Zaporozhye must be liberated.
    This operation will require at least another 300 thousand people, i.е. the second wave of mobilization, which most likely will begin immediately after the New Year holidays ....

      I completely agree with you, the best way to ensure that those parts of northwestern Ukraine never have NATO weapons directed at Moscow is to capture them, even if they are later granted neutral status. In addition, the Dnieper may become a completely viable and safe natural border in the future, sharing hydraulic sovereignty with it. But the city of Dnipro would be better if it were all on the Russian side, so that the territory would function.

    In 2000, the Russian leadership opted for tactical nuclear deterrence to defend the country cheaply against a conventional NATO army that has far more resources. It was something logical and reasonable, but a big problem arose, at a critical moment the Russian leadership did not dare and does not dare to use this force of deterrence. The threat that V.V. was used to protect the “Special Operation” (if NATO had helped Ukraine), but which turned out to be a “bluff”: then NATO consistently tested the red lines of Russia and almost completely lost respect for it, until today.

    Then, hastily thrown into the thick of war, the hesitant Russian leadership completely changes its defensive doctrine, returning to the need for a large conventional army ... but again hesitating and skimping on numbers.

    Because if you do it (the war is no longer for jokes), then at least do it for real, with intelligence, courage and determination, (A MILLION WELL-EQUIPPED TROOPS), with a very clear strategic task: to hold Kherson and to overwhelm and defeat the enemy’s defenses IN THE EAST OF UKRAINE (the Dnieper River as a natural border can be of great help at this stage), encircle, isolate and take Kharkiv and Donbass in a reasonable time. This is the only way to achieve strategic wins and a safe and short frontier for the next phase.

    At this point, you can stop the “negotiations” (you will already have a big and irreversible victory in your hands) or, after a reorganization pause, move on to the next stage, that is, try to take Odessa, Nikolaev and surround the Dnieper. from the West.

    If you succeed, then the third phase will come on its own, because with those Russian conquests, (smartly and additionally offering some territories for Moldavia, (western Dniester, former Bessarabia), for Poland, (Flag territories, with the condition of ending support on Ukraine and then this strip was demilitarized and left NATO) as well as Belarus for its great help, (part of the Chernihiv region) the Zelensky regime would crumble on its own.

    PS: If Russia loses Kherson and agrees with NATO on a Pyrrhic victory (Minsk 3), this will undoubtedly be the end of the current Russian leadership. United Russia would lose the elections and perhaps (there is no evil in the world) a new social democratic and patriotic leadership (more like the Chinese, with a strong leader like Pavel Drubinin rather than the cowardly and useless Zyuganov) could return Russia honor and strength.

    But Maidan-Navalny could also come, although this seems unlikely to me, because it would be the end of Russia as a nation.
