V. Putin has announced the mobilisation of Russias reserves. According to Putin, this will be a deliberate, unhurried, process.
Comment: Col. Lang was right. The Russians appear to have bitten off more than they can chew. Conventional wisdom is that the Russian plan B is now being executed – the Donbas will be absorbed into Russia after a referendum in the next few days.
The outcome of that, from a Russian perspective, is that any further Ukrainian attacks will be construed as attacks on Russia herself. That allegedly leaves them free to interdict NATO resupply operations in NATO countries.
As for a calm unhurried mobilization, I suspect not. I am reminded of the opening scene in ”Enemy At The Gates”
Where does this stop?
