Budanov answered the question whether Russia plans to announce mobilization on May 9.
“Yes, they are preparing. Now the Federal Reserve has begun to check what they actually have in stock and calculate what they can issue for mobilization orders. This is an absolutely necessary step before starting a real mobilization,” the head of the Main Intelligence Directorate said.
Budanov confirmed that Russia wants to win in eastern Ukraine before May 9.
“This is their goal, but it won’t happen, they don’t have time. They don’t have time in any way,” the head of Ukrainian intelligence emphasized.
Earlier, Aleksei Arestovich said that mobilization in Russia would accelerate the collapse of the Putin regime. Recall that in Ukraine citizens of Russia are also fighting against the occupiers . They have already formed their legion and received uniforms.
In Ukraine, mobilization will continue after May 24, if the situation requires it.
