President of Czechia, Petr Pavel, believes that Russia could fully restore its combat readiness within six years, according to Ceske Noviny.

According to him, the final deadlines for Russia's restoration will depend on the outcome of the war in Ukraine. However, based on his data, Russia may need at least five to seven years to restore its combat capability.

“On the other hand, there are many variables that can change the situation. It really depends on the outcome of the conflict in Ukraine,” he said.

He notes that NATO currently perceives Russia as the biggest threat in Europe. Meanwhile, the EU is preparing for a possible "high-intensity conflict" on the continent.

It's worth noting that German analysts previously mentioned similar timelines. According to their opinion, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin may need up to six years to rebuild the army and attack NATO.

Mobilization in Russia

As previously clarified by the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Russians continued to mobilize for war against Ukraine. Currently, their pace exceeds 20,000 people per month. Additionally, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Oleksiy Danilov previously reported that Russia was trying to recruit mercenaries from Central Asian countries for the war against Ukraine.

Moreover, the occupiers are actively mobilizing in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine. In particular, in the occupied Luhansk region, miners and prisoners are being mobilized.

Earlier, a representative of the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine said that Russia could launch a new wave of public mobilization as early as that fall. At the same time, the Kremlin was considering how to increase the population's readiness to go into battle.
