Russia will face logistical and administrative problems in recruiting 300,000 people in the announced partial mobilization.
This was stated in a daily summary of British intelligence.
"It is likely that Russia will try to create new formations with these troops, which are unlikely to be combat-ready for several months," the report said.
It is predicted that this limited mobilization is likely to be highly unpopular with parts of the Russian population.
"Putin is taking a significant political risk in the hope of creating much-needed combat power. The move is effectively an admission that Russia has exhausted its supply of volunteers willing to fight in Ukraine," the report notes.-
