Putin Orders Conscription of 134k Troops

Putin Orders Conscription of 134k Troops

(AbsoluteNews.com) – Russia invaded Ukraine more than a month ago, putting tens of thousands of civilians and troops in danger. Recent reports indicate the Russian military’s death toll passed 7,000 but the Kremlin only has it listed at 1,351. It seems President Vladimir Putin plans to replenish his forces with fresh new faces.

On March 31, Putin signed an order to force 134,500 conscripts to join the military. The soldiers are between the ages of 18 and 27. The Russian conscription, essentially a draft, runs from April 1 to July 15.

The country’s Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu promised none of the new military members will be deployed to “hot spots.” However, if the country is lying about its death toll, how can people believe their promises about keeping the conscripts out of Ukraine? According to Axios, at the beginning of March, Putin promised new soldiers they would not be participating in the war. But the Russian Defense Ministry has contradicted the president.

Putin’s regime has been negotiating a peace deal with Ukraine. So far, there haven’t been any breakthroughs, but there’s still hope the senseless conflict will come to an end soon in spite of his recent order to induct a massive number of new troops.

Do you believe Russia when it claims the conscripts won’t be sent to Ukraine?
