  • Up to half a million new troops are on the way from Russia, according to the Ukrainian military.

  • According to the Ukrainian Military Intelligence Service, the mobilize will take place on January 15.

  • Ukraine's deputy military intelligence chief said that if Russia lost this time around, Putin would fall.

According to the Ukrainian military, Putin is planning to send up to half a million new troops to prepare for a new offensive.

The Ukrainian Military Intelligence Service representative told T-Online that they believe the deployment will be announced on January 15.

Half a million people would be mobilized and most of them would be in cities such as Moscow and St Petersburg.

The recruits will be used in attacks in the east and south of the country in the spring, according to the Evening Standard.

The number of men they will need to defend in Kherson and Crimea is what we expect them to do.

Skibitsky predicted that Putin would collapse if Russia lost this time around.

There will be a huge increase in the number of Russian soldiers in occupied Ukraine.

There are more than two hundred thousand troops on the ground in Ukraine according to an official.

There has been discussion for months.

Russian regional leaders wrote to Putin in November asking him to stop sending reserve soldiers to fight in Ukraine.

According to the Institute of War, pro-Kremlin military websites in Russia have been spreading rumors of another deployment.

According to The Guardian, Putin claimed last month that the reports of a second wave of Mobilization were not true.

Many of the 300,000 soldiers who were Mobilized in October were untrained, elderly, or too young to fight.

One recent incident resulted in the murder of a Russian military commander, and there have been reports of drunken brawls.
