The main problem with mobilization in the Russian Federation is the shortage of non-commissioned officers - commanders of departments.

The ex-speaker of the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, a participant in numerous peacekeeping operations in various countries, military expert Vladyslav Voloshyn told the "Obozrevatel" publication about this.

"Junior officers are platoon and company commanders. And there is a huge shortage of them in Russia, it is very difficult to mobilize them and fill these positions. Because they are sergeants and officers, they must have military training, military education, must be ready to command and to manage these parts. And this will be a problem. Getting cannon fodder is not a matter of sorting out enterprises and up to the point that they will be caught on the streets and sent to the army. But this is a very risky path - there may be social explosions," he noted expert.

It will be recalled that on September 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on partial mobilization.

According to Shoigu, it is planned to recruit 300,000 people to the army as part of the mobilization.
