NEW – September 24, 2022
Think again, gentlemen, before it’s too late – otherwise there will be a big war!
Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a decree on partial mobilisation in the country. In accordance with this Decree, 300,000 reservists will be drafted into the army from among those who have already served in the armed forces and have experience in conducting military operations.
As soon as the Russian president finished his address to the citizens, analysts and experts in various parts of the world immediately began to wonder what “really” was behind the Decree on partial mobilisation, and in particular, what the term “partial” meant. In this regard, I would like to remind you that there are two types of conscription into the Russian army: partial conscription, that is, what is already happening, and universal conscription, which applies to all reservists.
According to a statement made on September 21 by Russian Defence Minister Sergey Shoigu, the number of those affected by partial mobilisation will be only 1% of the total number of reservists. According to the Minister, Russia has huge mobilisation resources at its disposal. We are talking, first and foremost, about people who have completed military service and have combat experience. And there are about 25 million such people in Russia.
The Defence Minister also explained that the partial mobilisation was caused by the need to establish control over the contact line with a length of more than 1,000 kilometres, and over territories previously liberated during a special military operation.
An extremely important circumstance, in my opinion, is the fact that partial mobilisation is carried out almost simultaneously with the referendums that will be held from September 23 to 27 in four areas under the control of the Russian armed forces (we are talking about the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, as well as the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions). I would like to remind you in this regard that President Putin, in his address to citizens, said that “we cannot, and have no moral right to, let people close to us be torn to pieces by the executioners of the Kiev regime, who are pursuing a policy of genocide, repression, terror and persecution against these people, we cannot but respond to a sincere the desire of these people to determine their own destiny”.
If, as a result of referendums, the people return to their native harbour, to their native land, as happened a few years ago on the Crimean peninsula, special responsibility will fall on the shoulders of the civil-military administration bodies in these areas. Their primary task will be to ensure security, solve the entire complex of military and socio-economic issues. Therefore, I firmly believe that Russia has taken the absolutely right step by announcing partial mobilisation. Conscripted reservists will be able to ensure the security of Russian borders and new Russian regions.
I would like to remind you that the number of personnel of the current Russian army is about 900,000 military personnel. As a result of partial mobilisation, this figure will increase to 2 million. It will take two or three weeks to retrain the mobilised. We are talking about military personnel with combat experience and military accounting specialties. Naturally, during the training camp they will acquire the necessary skills in the use of modern weapons and military equipment. In addition, a second wave of mobilisation may begin, as a result of which the number of personnel of the Russian army will reach 6 million military personnel who will be armed with modern weapons and military equipment. If a general mobilisation is announced, the number of personnel will increase, as was stated by Russian Defence Minister Sergey Shoigu, to 25 million. In this case, all males from among those who previously served in the army will be called up for military service. Recall that the maximum age of conscription is 60 years. Civilian industrial enterprises will also fall under the general mobilisation, which will work around the clock to meet all the military-civilian needs of Russia.
In his address to citizens, President Putin focused on “the aggressive policy of some of the Western elites, who are striving with all their might to maintain their dominance, and for this they are trying to block and suppress any sovereign independent development centres in order to continue to rudely impose their will on other countries and peoples, to impose their pseudo-values”.
The Russian President also said that “the goal of the West is to weaken, divide and ultimately destroy our country”. According to Vladimir Putin, “they are already directly saying that in 1991 they were able to split the Soviet Union, and now it’s time for Russia itself that it should break up into many deadly warring regions and regions”. “And such plans,” the Russian president noted, “they have been hatching for a long time. They encouraged gangs of international terrorists in the Caucasus, promoted the offensive infrastructure of NATO close to our borders. They have made total Russophobia their weapon.”
I would like to remind you in this regard that President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky in his speech on February 19 this year stated that Ukraine might revise the provisions of the Budapest Memorandum on Nuclear Disarmament signed on December 5, 1994. This statement surprisingly coincided with the demands of a number of high-ranking Ukrainian figures about the need to “have their own nuclear weapons” and about the “deployment of Ukrainian armed forces (according to some estimates, it was about half of the entire personnel of the Ukrainian army) on the border with Donbass”. Therefore, as Vladimir Putin said, “Russia inevitably had to intervene in the situation, protecting the Russian-speaking population of Donbass, which had been subjected to genocide for 8 years (we note, by the way, that German Chancellor Olaf Scholz once said that talk of genocide in Donbass is “ridiculous”), repression, violence and daily shelling.”
Today, as Vladimir Putin and Sergey Shoigu noted, we are no longer talking only about joint exercises of NATO and Ukraine forces on the territory of the latter, a few kilometres from the Russian borders. Ukraine, having lost, according to the Russian Ministry of Defence, about half of the personnel of its army (over 100,000 people, including 61,207 killed and 49,638 wounded), is fighting with the help of NATO weapons and finances. 150 advisers of the North Atlantic Alliance participate in the planning of military operations of the Ukrainian army. About 70 military artificial satellites of NATO and 200 civilian satellites of Western countries provide the Ukrainian army with all the necessary intelligence information in real time. In addition, about 2,000 foreign mercenaries who fought in the Ukrainian army and as part of nationalist extremist Ukrainian detachments were killed. Another 1,000 mercenaries continue to fight on the territory of Ukraine. Therefore, as Sergey Shoigu said, the war is no longer with Ukraine, but with the West, which supplies Ukraine with modern weapons. Meanwhile, the Kiev regime announces one mobilisation after another, sending its citizens to certain death.
Relations between Russia and Ukraine have worsened because of the stupid policy of the West, which still cannot and does not want to understand that it has been defeated in Ukraine. This became clear from the very beginning of the special military operation, after the entire military infrastructure that NATO and the Pentagon had been creating in Ukraine for a number of years was destroyed. As a result, the Ukrainian people were, in fact, “divided” into people living in the western, eastern and southern parts of the country. The results of this “division” will be visible according to the results of referendums held in four regions of Ukraine.
The entry of these regions into the Russian Federation will mean that the war between Ukraine and the Lugansk and Donetsk People’s Republics, whose independence Russia recognised in February this year, will become a war between Russia and Ukraine. Accordingly, any aggression against Russian territory will lead to the fact that it will be not only a special military operation, but also a war against the aggressor state. The reason for this situation is the policy of the Ukrainian leadership receiving instructions from the US Embassy in Kiev.
Kiev has refused and continues to refuse negotiations, not because it does not like the terms or format of negotiations, but because the Kiev regime does not make independent decisions. This regime is under the absolute authority of those who finance it and provide it with all the necessary military assistance to achieve their own goals, to pursue their own interests, radically different from the goals and interests of the Ukrainian people. The Ukrainian people and the Ukrainian army have become a kind of American “glove” receiving modern weapons. This leads to an expansion of the scale of hostilities. Kiev is doing all the dirty work on behalf of Washington. We are talking about a hybrid war, like all previous wars involving the United States. The only difference is that the scale of the fighting has expanded significantly. We are practically talking about a confrontation between two nuclear powers. This is where the danger lies.
Some analysts and political “figures” called President Putin’s decision to declare partial mobilisation a sign of “Moscow’s weakness”, “a reaction to the successful counteroffensive of the Ukrainian army”, “a decision to resort to scorched earth tactics”. It seems to me that this step means the beginning of the end of Russia’s special military operation and the transition to a new stage when Putin will dot all the dots and give the North Atlantic Alliance and Europe the last chance to avoid a large-scale war. After all, Washington, apparently, is ready to throw a huge number of people into the furnace of war, to involve new countries in it, such as Poland and the Baltic states, for example. However, the United States should not forget that Russia has participated in such wars in the past and won them. There is no doubt that Russia will win again this time.
