US intelligence: Putin is preparing a new wave of mobilization for 200 thousand people

Russian President Vladimir Putin is considering a new wave of mobilization to send up to 200,000 civilians into the military, CNN reported, citing US and Western officials familiar with the intelligence.

Two sources said the Kremlin has begun conducting polls to gauge possible public reactions to the mobilization.

According to him, the second wave of recruitment is expected to be “quieter” than the first, which Putin declared in a televised address as “partial”.

CNN sources say Putin is aware of the unpopular mobilization, which has sparked protests in some regions and a wave of emigration that has driven hundreds of thousands of young people out of the country.

Sources say that Putin has not taken any decision yet. At the same time, the first wave of mobilization nearly doubled the number of forces in Ukraine, albeit at the cost of poorly trained and undisciplined troops.

Now the army needed even more “cannon fodder”: Russian generals threw tens of thousands of men from the mobilized reserve into the battle for Bakhmut. As a result, in this sector of the front, Russia still has more manpower and artillery power than the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Western officials say.

According to him, Russia suffers significant losses, but the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are colossal. And given how quickly Ukraine is running out of artillery shells, the US doesn’t think this style of warfare can continue, CNN’s sources say.

The West, he says, recommends that Kyiv avoid fighting for Bakhmut and concentrate on the offensive in the south.
