The Moscow army has begun the process of recruiting volunteers for its war in Ukraine, as per the British secret service, which mentions that men up to 50 years old with at least high school diplomas are being offered lucrative bonuses to sign up.
The headquarter of this new unit will be Moelino, a town near Nizhny Novgorod, east of Moscow.
As per the information shared by the British secret service, it is unlikely that this new army unit will have a decisive impact on the war. Russia is not expected to get 15,000 to 20,000 Russians, the usual size of such a unit, to go and fight in Ukraine, states note.
Currently, the Russians are hassling to make their progress in their offensive in eastern Ukraine’s Donbas region, while also repelling counterattacks in the south by the Ukrainians, helped in this by arms deliveries to Kyiv from the West.
For several months now, the British government has been publishing regular updates on the war based on intelligence from the secret services. However, Moscow blames London of disinformation.
