Ukraine fears attack as Russia prepares: “We risk collapse,” says Kiev


Apr 3, 2024

Russia is preparing to mobilize an additional 300,000 soldiers in a vital phase of the war in Ukraine, which could threaten Kiev’s first defensive line, as reported by senior officers of the armed forces. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky confirmed during a press conference with his Finnish counterpart Alexander Stubb that Russia plans to send more troops to Ukraine by June 1st. Zelensky also signed a law lowering the age of mandatory military service to 25 years, in an effort to increase the number of men ready to defend against the Russian military.

The Ukrainian military is preparing for a potential attack by Russia between late spring and early summer in regions such as Kharkiv, Sumy, or Odessa. There is concern among Ukrainian officials that Russia’s advanced technologies and strategies could pose a significant threat to Ukraine’s defenses. The new military law allows for voluntary enlistment at age 18, but restricts men aged 18 to 60 from leaving Ukraine due to martial law.

Senior officers who worked with former commander General Valeri Zaluzhny express concern that Russia could break through Ukraine’s front lines and cause a collapse of defenses. They emphasize the importance of having adequate technologies and resources to counter Russia’s military capabilities. Russia’s strategic use of drones, missiles, and evolving tactics poses a serious challenge for Ukraine’s armed forces. The sources point out that Russia’s military strategy goes beyond using sheer numbers of soldiers and includes advanced missile systems and continuous strategic upgrades.

As the conflict intensifies, Ukraine faces a critical juncture in its defense against Russian aggression. The situation remains volatile and unpredictable, with Russia’s military capabilities posing a significant threat to Ukrainian forces. The ongoing mobilization of troops and efforts to strengthen Ukraine’s military readiness are crucial in the face of the escalating conflict.
