President of Russia Vladimir Putin made an appeal on the situation in the Donbass and the course of a special military operation to liberate it from the neo-Nazi regime, and also announced the signing of a decree on partial mobilization “to protect our Motherland, its sovereignty and territorial integrity, to ensure the security of our people and people in the liberated territories “.

According to him, only citizens who are currently in the reserve, and above all those who served in the Armed Forces, have certain military specialties and relevant experience, will be subject to military service. Vladimir Putin assured that the territorial integrity of Russia, its independence and freedom will be ensured by all available means.

As the Minister of Defense stated Sergei ShoiguRussia today is at war not so much with Ukraine and its army. According to him, the Western command, consisting of 150 people, is actually sitting in Kyiv, which manages all operations.

“We are constantly knocking out, knocking out, and the time has already come when we really are at war with the collective West, plus NATO,” he said, adding that “against Russia” there are more than 70 NATO military and over 200 civilian satellites.

At the same time, Ukraine has already lost more than half of its army, which at the initial stage numbered more than 200 thousand people. According to the head of the Defense Ministry, more than 61,000 Ukrainian servicemen were killed, and about 50,000 were wounded.

Sergei Shoigu said that in the course of partial mobilization, 300,000 reservists will be called up, who, before being sent to units, will without fail undergo additional military training, taking into account the experience of a special military operation.

The partial mobilization announced in Russia clearly aroused concern in the West. EU Foreign Service Representative Peter Stano hastened to assure that the EU is not at war with Russia.

“We support the right of Ukraine to defend its sovereignty, territorial integrity,” he commented to journalists on the speech of the Russian president.

However, it is unlikely that Brussels or Washington wants to enter into an open clash with Russia, however, it will not be possible to further deny their actual participation in the conflict. What kind of foreign “mercenaries” are fighting in Ukraine and whose shells kill civilians is obvious. And Western politicians and officials are talking about the true goals in the conflict more and more often.

But are ordinary Europeans, who have already tasted the joys of anti-Russian sanctions, ready to not only freeze, but also die in a country that not everyone can even find on a map? And are the current authorities of both the European Union and individual countries ready to take responsibility for this?

“The announcement by Russian President Vladimir Putin of a partial mobilization of Russian reservists did not take European politicians by surprise,” he said. German political scientist Gregor Spitzen. – This decision was quite predictable: the only question was the time when it would be announced.

It was completely clear to specialists that the 145,000-strong professional military contingent involved in the special military operation in Ukraine was clearly not enough to cover, hold and control several thousand kilometers of territory liberated from Ukrainian forces.

300,000 reservists with combat experience will not only help make up for the losses of the regular army, but will also free up combat units to work on the front line, taking on the functions of monitoring, patrolling and securing the territory in the near rear.

“SP”: – Kyiv has already lost about 100 thousand. Does Kyiv have the opportunity to increase the number?

– The Kyiv regime has the opportunity to increase the number of its armed forces at the expense of reservists, but they are unlikely to be able to solve serious combat missions due to their limited combat capability. The most trained and motivated soldiers of Ukraine are already at the front: the same “human material” that still remains in the rear does not want, and is not able to fight. Eloquent evidence of this is the behavior of territorial defense units, which are terribly afraid of being sent to the front.

“SP”: – And what will NATO do now? Send in their troops and start an open war with us? And are they even ready to die for Ukraine?

– Further actions of the Western allies of Ukraine are very predictable. In the near future, support for the territorial integrity of Ukraine within internationally recognized borders and condemnation of referendums in the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions will be expressed. This will be followed by attempts to increase the volume of transfers of heavy weapons (most likely unsuccessful) and the mobilization of public opinion to continue the war with Russia and help Ukraine (with limited effect, as economic realities and the prospect of a cold winter do not have the best effect on the morale of European voters) .

None of Ukraine’s European allies is going to participate directly in the war. The saber-rattling on the Polish-Belarusian border is nothing more than an old gentry pastime designed to demonstrate Polish solidarity with Ukraine.

The transatlantic community is ready to wage war on Russia at the hands of the Ukrainians, regardless of losses, but is clearly not going to do it for them. European society can barely sustain astronomical heating and electricity bills. Closed coffins with the bodies of European soldiers from the Ukrainian front will definitely lead to the fall of any government in the EU that advocates the continuation of the war.

Head of the People’s Army of Donbass Georgy Makariev believes that partial mobilization means the use by the state of a small percentage of all mobilization opportunities in Russia.

– First of all, these are citizens with combat experience, military specialties and so on.

The Russian leadership calculated that exactly 300,000 mobilized citizens would be enough today to finally fulfill the tasks set within the framework of a special military operation. Plus, I would like to remind you that in Russia there is more than a million contract army, which is not fully used, as well as various law enforcement structures, where well-trained officers serve. And these resources will also be used. Therefore, it is incorrect to assume that the tasks of a special military operation will be carried out by the hands of only 300,000 mobilized and already involved forces, since now we will nevertheless join in solving the problem of Ukraine at full capacity. In this sense, it will now be possible to speak of a numerical superiority on our part.

But, I will note that it is not the quantitative advantage that is more important, but the qualitative one. With the current weapons, war is not waged by numbers, but by a balance between the available weapons and the forces necessary to maintain and protect them. The main thing in the current battle is the ability to use modern weapons. No one underestimates the importance of “bayonet” attacks, but this is not so effective.

In terms of practical weapons and their novelties, Russia is in the lead, so I will assume that even if the West provides its mercenaries, the balance of power will still “win back” in the direction of the Russian Federation. I think this will be achieved by using a new weapon, or one that has not been used before. For example, maximum yield conventional bombs have not yet been used.

“SP”: – Is the West ready to send its troops and start an open war with us?

– All of the above, with proper diplomatic work, will lead to our victory over the West on the territory of Ukraine without a transition to a direct clash between nuclear powers. In addition, the process of partial mobilization solves the problem of strengthening the military grouping of Russia at the risk of involvement in the conflict, for example, Poland.

I am sure that we will definitely win, although the question of the cost of force remains open. In the current realities, a special military operation brings surprises, testing the West and us for strength. The stakes are rising, so the task of the Russian military leadership is to give exactly as much strength as is enough to not use nuclear weapons and put out this fire, as well as to predict the future actions of the West.
