UA: *Immediately* bans exit for every male between 16 and 60, immediately starts recruiting prisoners (including notorious war criminals such as "Tornado"), places conscription officers at entries/exits to all major cities, eventually starts handing out conscription notices AT GUNPOINT to literally anyone they find, now even including those previously exempt due to family commitments, disabilities etc. Wrestling down and dragging away those who resist.Russia started war with:
* 1 million regular army
* 340 K Rosgvardiya
* 40 K so called LDNR regular force
* 200 K so called LDNR mobiks
Then they also started creating "volunteer" brigades in each region, sent Nazi "Rusich", tens of thousands Wagner, Redut, Patriot and other mercenaries..
Finally they mobilized another 320 K.
Yet you somehow claim that poor Russians are always outnumbered.
"No mobilization, it's all fine and dandy"
RU: Standard small-scale mobilization *half a year in* of people who are in the pool, ie people with prior legit military experience. Paper notice, no physical coercion. Some people leave the country (1) but nobody tries to stop them. Some return later and face no issues. Some mistakes are made (some people not suitable are called up) because the law they went by is 20+ year old and some registries hadn't been adequately updated, but these mistakes are immediately acknowledged even by the top brass and subsequently rectified.
"Literal Volksturm-esque Nazi last stand"
So far, far less than the U.S. dodgers during Vietnam. My only concern at this point is if Ukraine gets minuteman ICBM nuclear warheads or Poland gets involved. You already saw it yourself 300k got involved in the operation which lasted for 2 months, withdrew and left 80k in the special operation zone. 320k reservists get involved but they have not been used yet while we see them get trained on T-90s, some T-14s, etc while we see Soledar get taken until it will be a matter of time for Ugledar, Seversk, bakhmut and kherson to be taken. There is no magical powers AFAIK for western tanks saving them other than making it clear if they need western tanks now than before than they must have alot of destroyed equipment. You are going to cry to me again that its bullshit, so I will show a western source that shows a map of what amount of Ukrainian troops and russian troops are involved the special operation zone but of course you will go ignore that as well. So I will leave you happy that Ukraine is winning.
