Spiegel: Moscow is able to mobilize another million people

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. It is very significant that at the same time, quite unexpectedly, China came up with a peacekeeping initiative, which diligently tried to distance itself from the war on the territory of the former Independent.

    mobilization will be needed for territorial defense if significant territories are liberated. Perhaps now the military-industrial complex + the economy is not able to support a large army

      If we hit the back of the neck of the fifth column and the oligarchy with a shovel, then we will not even pull it!

    Mobilization is needed to replace the last Russian-speaking men in the Russian Federation with immigrants from S.A. who received citizenship thanks to the wise policy of the helmsman and turning the Russian Federation into an Oriental bazaar, selling off the remaining resources at a low price ... The IMF does not need Russia, it needs a stall in the bazaar ready to reduce the price at the snap of your fingers...

    Then you will have to arm everyone with mosquitoes, tar, PPSh and revolvers and T-34s ... Uniforms at your own expense)) Well, to justify, they will play cool videos about cool mosquitoes.
    You are aware that equipment is being transferred from storage warehouses with non-working autoloaders, non-working ventilation, old walkie-talkies, no heating ... in general, without maintenance, bringing it to a normal state ... in general, it’s called so. Volunteers supply the army with armor and everything else. In general, you can call on a lot ... but only without supplies ... but is it necessary ???? If Wagner is begging for shells on the LBS, then what will happen to the territorial defense)))???? In the know about machine guns with bent barrels - like it will do, you still might not need it ????

    Spiegel: Moscow is able to mobilize another million people

    And what would the bourgeoisie say to the fact that Russia will completely pull at least another five million volunteers?! I think they would take a break to change their underwear!

      Firstly, it’s not a fact that it will pull.
      In the main - the herds of poorly trained infantry armed with Kalash alone will not give anything on the battlefield.

      The question is to saturate the troops with planning bombs, drones and thermal imagers, and not "meat" ..
