Russia is actively restoring the combat readiness of troops that have been withdrawn for reformation. Due to heavy losses and a shortage of personnel in the army, the regions may announce a general mobilization.
It is reported by Bloomberg.
According to high-ranking European officials familiar with the situation, Russia is gathering live forces as well as serviceable equipment from all military districts, having used up most of its military potential in the first 100 days of the invasion of Ukraine.
It has been suggested that it may take several months for Russia to regroup its forces in a major way in the near future. The Kremlin may also be forced to declare a mass mobilization to address the shortage of rank-and-file personnel. But sources in Russia note that Russian President Vladimir Putin is still opposed to such a move, as starting mobilization would mean publicly acknowledging the war.
Earlier, Valery Zaluzhny, commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, said that Russia had thrown up to seven BTGs to capture Severodonetsk.
According to the GUR of the Defense Ministry, the Russian Federation has a plan for 120 days of war against Ukraine. But it has to be adjusted every month due to setbacks.
