Manning the Occupation Military Formation in the East of Ukraine Is Up to 80 Percent
Giving comments on the conducting an inspection of mobilization readiness by Russian occupation administration, Vadym Skibitskyi noted that logistics units and support units are the most manned.
– Problem connected with the mobilization resource was identified in the course of inspections of the 1st and 2nd Army Corps by a commission of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces. Shortcomings are currently being eliminated as a matter of urgency, – the representative of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine said.
According to the military intelligence of Ukraine, manning strength of the Russian occupation troops is 35,5 thousand people. About 3 thousand of career servicemen of the Russian Armed Forces have been serving at the 1st and 2nd Army Corps.
However, by the information of the military intelligence of Ukraine, there is an outflow of the servicemen from units of the 1st and 2nd Army Corps and decreasing mobilization resource. The reason for this is that a great number of the population of the so-called “republics” is leaving for Russia as a result of difficult socio-economic conditions. As a consequence of this, the Russian occupation administration has been blocking departure of citizens at the ages from 18 to 50 out of the quasi-republics at every possible way.
