Russia Calls Up More Troops

by Peter Zeihan on September 21, 2022

Russian president Vladimir Putin has called up some 300,000 Russian troops in a “partial mobilization” to assist Russian forces in Moscow’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine. Ukrainian forces have had some recent successes on the battlefield against Russian troops in the roughly 7-month-old conflict. Putin’s move reflects a classic Russian tactic (throwing more bodies at a problem), but is as likely a move to refresh troops on the ground as it is in reaction to recent losses.
