Military expert Oleg Zhdanov believes that the war in Ukraine will not last for several years.
He notes that even a new human resource of Russia won’t help her win this war. According to him, mobilization in the Russian Federation will only make things worse internal political situation in the country.
This is the forecast of Oleg Zhdanov gave on his YouTube channel.
“Indeed, the Russian Federation has a lot of reserves, but they are a thing of the past. Even now, we are recording echelons of Russian military equipment in Rostov. There are KrAZ trucks, removed from storage, which were stored in the USSR. They are deconserving them so that they can be used to fight in Ukraine. They will form 1 million 200 thousand reservists. Now a scheme was already emerging, according to which they want to carry out the mobilization. By the end of the year, the Kremlin wants to collect half a million reservists, next year – another 700,000. The newly mobilized do not put up much resistance. They live in terrible conditions, they are settled in sports halls in cities, they are given Soviet mattresses. No one rebels, they agree with their slavish participation. Someone has already been sent to the front, someone is already dying in Ukraine, and someone is being captured. As it turns out, there is a resource in the Russian Federation. Maybe the motivation is not so high, but the resources are there. Likewise in technology. Despite the fact that it is old, they will try to fight on it. Yes, old, Soviet ones, but they will be,” Zhdanov said.
The expert emphasized that the Russian economy, which began to “suffocate” against the backdrop of mobilization, also plays a major role in Russia’s ability to wage a long war in Ukraine. It will only get worse, Zhdanov believes.
“Will this war last 2-3 years – I think not. Even with all these positive moments, there is still such a concept as economy and finance. Yes, the Russian economy is already “suffocating” because of the wave they raised through the mobilized. They no longer have anything to dress and equip them with. I think, the further, the more problems there will be in the Russian Federation. Let’s see where they will settle them, because there is nowhere for today. Everything will depend on the domestic political situation in Russia itself,” he emphasized.
We will remind, the US ambassador warned world about disaster which can happen due to Putin’s nuclear blackmail.
