Russian President Vladimir Putin is going to send more troops to Ukraine to protect the country. For this, he has ordered the partial army members who are in reserve to join.
In a televised address on Wednesday (September 21), Putin gave the order. This is the first such order from Moscow since World War II.
Putin said that if the territorial integrity of our country is threatened, we will use all our forces to protect our people. This is not intimidation.
Russia’s defense minister said 300,000 troops would be mobilized from the reserves and sent to Ukraine.
Putin’s announcement of the troop increase comes as Russia loses control of several areas in Ukraine’s Kharkiv region.
Pointing out that the West does not want peace in Ukraine, Putin said that part of the 200,000 troops in reserve will be deployed to protect Russia and its territorial integrity.
Meanwhile, British Foreign Minister Gillian Keegan has expressed concern that Putin’s announcement will intensify the war in Ukraine.
After Putin’s comments, the price of the Russian currency, the ruble, fell in the world and the price of oil also increased.
