Russia plans to mobilize an additional 300,000 servicemen by June 1, says President Volodymyr Zelenskyy at a joint press conference with his Finnish counterpart Alexander Stubb, reports RBC-Ukraine correspondent.

"We don't need half a million. The corresponding number of those who were not on the front line will be sent to the front. As for the specific number of how many will be mobilized - I'm not ready to say yet. I can say that Russia is preparing to mobilize an additional 300,000 military personnel by June 1," the president said.

Mobilization in Russia

According to the General Staff of the Armed Forces, Ukrainian soldiers eliminated another 710 occupiers on April 2. Since the start of the full-scale Russian invasion, Russia has lost 444,370 military personnel.

As British intelligence reports, the terrorist state recruits about 30,000 new soldiers to its army each month. This allows it to continue the aggressive war against Ukraine.

At the end of March, dictator Vladimir Putin signed a decree for spring conscription into the Russian army, planning to recruit 150,000 soldiers.

According to intelligence, the Kremlin regime will use the terrorist attack at the Crocus City Hall near Moscow to strengthen mobilization efforts.
