A new beginning of war
It should be noted that this incident has come to the fore at a time when Russia Ukraine 3 million people have been asked to enlist in the army against Ukraine as the war resumes. In simple words, 300,000 men will be mobilized into the army. These people will be mobilized who already have military experience. Russia says the move is necessary to ensure the safety of people living in Russian-occupied territories.
President Putin recently addressed the country on TV and warned the West that Russia will take all possible measures to defend its territory and this is not just rhetoric. Putin said the expansion of the border line, continued shelling of Russian border areas by Ukrainian forces, and the withdrawal of troops from reserves were necessary for attacks on liberated areas. A day before the Russian president’s speech, the Russian-held regions of southern and eastern Ukraine announced that they would hold a referendum between September 23 and 27 to become an integral part of Russia.
After Putin’s speech, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said 300,000 reservists would be called up for a partial deployment. A reservist is a person who is a member of the ‘Military Reserve Force’. It is the civilian who is given military training and can be deployed anywhere when needed.
