Vladamir Putin Announces "Partial Military Mobilisation"

Valdamir Putin Announces Partial military mobilisation

 Moscow 21.09.2022 

In a Pre recorded televised speech, Russian President Vladimir Putin declared a partial mobilisation in Ukraine as his war in Ukraine approaches its seventh month. Over the months, Moscow has been losing ground on the battlefield. Putin also warned the West that Russia would protect its borders using "all available tools." The overall number of reservists to be called up, according to officials, is 3,000,000. 

This move comes as separatist regions in Ukraine seek for a referendum on joining Russia. The referendums, which have been scheduled since the beginning of the war, are set to begin on Friday in Luhansk, Kherson, and parts of Zaporizhzhia and Donetsk under Russian control.

In the televised speech, the Russian President repeatedly call the Kyiv regime Nazis and accused them of killing civilians in the separatist regions of Donetsk and Luhansk, forcing many to become refugees. 

President Putin further accused the West of attempting to destroy Russia in the same way that it had brought down the Soviet Union. Putin accused the West of "nuclear blackmail," citing "statements made by various senior representatives of the key Nato nations concerning the possibility of using nuclear weapons of mass destruction against Russia."

“To those who allow themselves such statements regarding Russia, I want to remind you that our country also has various means of destruction, and for separate components and more modern than those of Nato countries and when the territorial integrity of our country is threatened, to protect Russia and our people, we will certainly use all the means at our disposal,” Putin said.

The Russian president, on the other hand, insists that this is simply a partial military mobilisation and that no citizens will be drafted; only the existing military reserves will be called up to fight.

Earlier on Wednesday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy referred to the referendum plans as "noise" and applauded Ukraine's allies for criticising the vote, which is scheduled to begin on Friday. Zelenskyy added in his evening address that the declarations created many questions, but that they would not change Ukraine's determination to retake territories occupied by the Russian military. 

President Vladamir Putin's pre-recorded Wednesday speech was his most impassioned and passionate speech to date. Not only did Putin threaten to react against any type of attack by the West with all of Russia's force, but he also made explicit Russia's nuclear capabilities and emphasised Russia's independence and freedom.

It is unclear what this partial military mobilisation signifies, but male Russian nationals aged 18 to 60 are believed to be barred from leaving the country. However, it is apparent that Russia currently requires more military forces to achieve its objectives in Ukraine and has taken the current crisis in Ukraine to a new trajectory.
