Vladimir Putin has told his military chiefs that the Russian Army needs “5 million troops” to be mobilised in “order to win” the war with NATO in Ukraine.”
A document which has been seen in Moscow is entitled “Conclusions of the war with NATO in Ukraine” which also stated there “has not been such a war in the previous 80 years.”
The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine highlighted that the Russian Army have “commanders” who do not have the ability to “command troops.”
Oleksii Hromov, the deputy head of the Main Operative Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, said, “A part of this ‘masterpiece’ among other things focuses of the main problems of the Russian occupying forces such as the commanders’ inability to command troops, low level of discipline and military training, obsolescence of armament and military equipment, commanders’ inability to make decisions without obligatorily coordinating them with higher command etc.
