WorldRussiaRussia to increase military recruitment to include older citizens as well
Russian legislators on Friday have finalised several steps to increase its military recruitment to include older citizens as its forces have taken major hits and had been pushed out of several primary areas in Ukraine.
As per reports, an amendment was introduced in Russia’s Parliament that would eliminate the need for first-time military enlistments between the age group of 18 to 40.
The measure would allow older Russian citizens to join the war effort. The reports revealed a statement from the lower house of Parliament, “highly professional specialists are required” to operate military equipment. The statement also mentioned that the medical workers and engineers were among the specialists needed.
The legislators did not mention the need for additional ground troops in Ukraine. However, last week, the UK’s Ministry of Defense said that Russia has likely lost a third of its ground combat force since invading in February.
The Russian military has been dealt a series of setbacks in the war, including failing to capture the capital city of Kyiv and then Kharkiv, Ukrainian second-largest city. After getting pushed out of the latter last week, some Russian forces were redeployed to the eastern Donbas region.
As per the statement released by the NATO’s secretary-general, Jens Stoltenberg, earlier this week, that, Russian efforts in the Donbas had also stalled, adding that “Russia is not achieving its strategic objectives.”
