Specifically, Putin asked for those “who are currently in the reserve and . . . those who have served in the army, who have certain professions and have necessary experience,” will be recruited for his special military operation.
Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky mobilized in February, at the beginning of this conflict, all males between the age of 18 to 60 to fight the Russian invasion. Without question, it’s an uphill battle. But, with the help of West support in arms, supplies, sanctions, and here is an important point, its will to fight, Ukraine is holding its own.
Will the pendulum of support swing against Putin with additional Russian families involved? Will the cold harsh winter change their will to fight? Will the protracted conflict diminish the Russian military moral? When adding them all up, it does not bode well for Putin.
How long do you think Putin will last in this conflict?
