Ukraine’s Defense at Risk as Russia Sends 300,000 More Soldiers by June 1st

Ukraine fears attack as Russia prepares: “We risk collapse,” says Kiev

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has confirmed that Russia plans to send an additional 300,000 soldiers to Ukraine by June 1st. This move could threaten Kiev’s first defensive line as reported by senior officers of the armed forces. The Ukrainian military is preparing for a potential attack by Russia in regions such as Kharkiv, Sumy, or Odessa. There are concerns among Ukrainian officials that Russia’s advanced technologies and strategies could pose a significant threat to Ukraine’s defenses.

In an effort to increase the number of men ready to defend against the Russian military, Zelensky has signed a law lowering the age of mandatory military service to 25 years. However, this law allows for voluntary enlistment at age 18, but restricts men aged 18 to 60 from leaving Ukraine due to martial law. Senior officers who worked with former commander General Valeri Zaluzhny express concern that Russia could break through Ukraine’s front lines and cause a collapse of defenses. They emphasize the importance of having adequate technologies and resources to counter Russia’s military capabilities.

The sources point out that Russia’s military strategy goes beyond using sheer numbers of soldiers and includes advanced missile systems and continuous strategic upgrades. The strategic use of drones, missiles, and evolving tactics poses a serious challenge for Ukraine’s armed forces. As the conflict intensifies, Ukraine faces a critical juncture in its defense against Russian aggression. The situation remains volatile and unpredictable, with Russia’s military capabilities posing a significant threat to Ukrainian forces. The ongoing mobilization of troops and efforts to strengthen Ukraine’s military readiness are crucial in the face of the escalating conflict.
