According to Ukraine's armed forces, Russia's military is circulating a document called "Conclusions of the war with NATO in Ukraine," which declares that 5 million Russian troops must be deployed in order for Russia to win, Ukrayinska Pravda reports.
Full article with links to the report at: https://www.rawstory.com/russia-says-it ... n-ukraine/During a briefing, deputy head of the Main Operative Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Oleksii Hromov, said that the document says the main problems of the Russian occupying forces are "the commanders’ inability to command troops, low level of discipline and military training, obsolescence of armament and military equipment, commanders’ inability to make decisions without obligatorily coordinating them with higher command etc."
To put this in perspective, total number of US military troops fighting in Europe/North Africa was 1.5 million in WWII, that was to defeat the German military forces. Granted we weren't the only country fighting in WWII. But the Russians are saying they need 5 million to defeat the much smaller country of the Ukraine.
