Mobilization in Russia may have a bad effect on the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine - People's Deputy

Mobilization of Rashists may significantly complicate de-occupation of the territories of Ukraine occupied by Russian troops, because it will allow Russian troops to effectively resist the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

This opinion was expressed in an article for Ukrinform by MP from European Solidarity, First Deputy Head of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Committee on National Security, Defense and Intelligence Mikhail Zabrodsky.

According to him , the declared mobilization of 300 thousand people gives the Russian command the opportunity to additionally form from 80 to 120 armored personnel carriers.

“Such a number of troops – comparable to the size of the Russian army invasion this spring! However, thousands of people dressed in military uniforms are not yet brigades or battalions. The main question arises, oddly enough, the following. Four dozen combined arms brigades – this is up to about 1200 tanks, up to 4000 infantry fighting vehicles or armored personnel carriers, about 1600 guns and MLRS, — notes Zabrodsky, pointing out that the Russian Federation now does not have the necessary amount of equipment for this, and even more so the latest models.

Therefore, the value of such newly formed units will be of dubious benefit to the Russian army.

< p>“The most dangerous for us and, of course, justified for the enemy is only one of the so far potential results of the Russian partial mobilization. The use on the territory of Ukraine of any additional number of replenished or newly formed formations and military units will give the Russian command an expanded opportunity to apply their favorite of the principles of Clausewitz's military strategy – concentration of forces at a given point. Such massiveness can overshadow the issues of motivation, the level of training and equipment of Russian troops. The likely consequences of this could be extremely devastating for the Armed Forces of Ukraine”, — emphasizes Zabrodsky.

He also points out that the Russian command can expect the practical results of mobilization not earlier than December of this year.

“Of course, that emergency measures and neglect of preparation for this period can be shortened, but it is absolutely clear that partial mobilization in the near future is unlikely to affect the situation on the line of collision, », — adds the people's deputy.
