Putin's Ukraine War mobilization a step too

[Every man Putin drafts into his “Special Operation” is a man who is no longer engaged at a productive job and another man to be paid on the government’s dime. Can Putin/Russia afford it?]

Is Vladimir Putin’s ‘partial’ Ukraine War mobilization a step too far for Russians?

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s “partial mobilization” of some 300,000 reservists to bolster withering Russian forces in Ukraine was not a popular move.

Cities around Russia saw their biggest anti-war protests since Putin launched his invasion in late February, and panicked Russian men rushed to the border or scrambled to buy the remaining exorbitantly priced airplane tickets to the few destinations still welcoming Russians.
