Putin will struggle to ‘train and equip’ civilians

Strategic Insights Australia director Michael Shoebridge said Russian President Vladimir Putin would struggle to “train and equip” civilians after his announcement to mobilize 300,000 more people into Russia’s war on Ukraine.

“He’s going to have a hard time getting that number,” Mr Shoebridge told Sky News host Chris Kenny.

“Since day one this war has gone badly for Putin and now this response that he had to call a whole bunch of Russian men is going very badly for him domestically.”
