Russian drafted troops without military experience: UK

'They are likely to suffer a high attrition rate'

(ANSA) - BELGRADE, SEP 26 - Many of the drafted troops in Russia "will not have had any military experience for some years," the UK Ministry of Defence said in its latest intelligence update today. "The lack of military trainers, and the haste with which Russia has started the mobilisation, suggests that many of the drafted troops will deploy to the front line with minimal relevant preparation. They are likely to suffer a high attrition rate," the ministry added. (ANSA).
