The German magazine Spiegel reports that Russia could mobilize another million soldiers. The publication refers to data from the Federal Intelligence Service (BND).
In fact, the publication argues, Moscow has "tremendous resources" that have not yet been put to use in Ukraine.
Some 300 people were mobilized and recruited last fall, some of whom are still in training and some are already in combat
- the newspaper quotes the words of the head of the BND Bruno Kahl.
He noted that today the mobilization potential of Russia is up to a million people.
Russia's further mobilization potential is a reserve of up to a million people, if the Kremlin deems it necessary
- concluded the head of German intelligence.
In January, the British Times reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin expects to mobilize another 500 people. The newspaper refers to Western intelligence data, according to which the Russian authorities can train and send those mobilized to the front line by April.
Earlier it was reported that US President Joe Biden during his one-day visit to Kyiv on February 20 He pledged supply Ukraine with a huge amount of offensive weapons.
