Moscow to mobilize an additional 400,000 recruits… and Ukraine is preparing for a counterattack
Yesterday, Moscow said that it would have to penetrate deep into Ukraine, towards the capital, Kiev, and the city of Lviv in the west, in order to achieve the goals of the “special military operation” that it launched more than a year ago in Ukraine.
“We need to protect the territory of the Russian Federation,” said Deputy Chairman of the National Security Council Dmitry Medvedev, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, through demilitarized corridors around the Ukrainian regions that Russia annexed last September, adding: “We need to get rid of all The foreigners who are there, in every sense of the word, and the establishment of a buffer zone in which the use of any type of medium and short-range weapons is prohibited; Any area from 70 to 100 kilometers will be demilitarized. And he stressed that “if necessary,” the Russian army would arrive in Kiev or Lviv in order to eradicate the “disease,” according to RIA Novosti.
The Kremlin says it is about to launch a campaign aimed at strengthening field conditions on the front by recruiting more than 400,000 people, according to Bloomberg, citing well-informed official sources who declined to be identified. With this kind of recruitment, the sources said, the Kremlin is avoiding launching a controversial general mobilization, as happened last fall.
Ukraine, in turn, says it will never accept Russian control of any of its territory, and plans to launch a counterattack soon, at a time when the Russian offensive in Bakhmut appears to be faltering. There has been no immediate comment from Moscow on suggestions that its forces in Bakhmut are retreating, but Yevgeny Prigozhin, head of the Wagner Group, has made statements in the past few days warning of a Ukrainian counterattack. Correspondents near the front line, north of Bakhmut, monitored indications consistent with what was said about the possibility of a retreat of the Russian attack in the region.
