Reservists mobilized by Russia, forced to carry their own first aid kit

Part of the reservists called up in recent days by Russia received orders to join the Armed Forces with your own first aid kitgiven the apparent lack of resources on the part of the Russian authorities, according to the UK Intelligence services.

The men summoned within the framework of the partial mobilization decreed by the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, barely receive training to respond to emergencies and they arrive at the combat front sometimes carrying their own resources.

The authorities even recommend that supplies menstrual hygiene products as a cheap option in the face of possible medical needs, collects British military intelligence in a report published this Friday.

Some military have obtained "Western-type" tourniquet straps, but they would be tying them to their equipment with cables, instead of the usual Velcro, for fear that other teammates could steal them. British experts warn that these shortcomings delay and even make urgent action impossible.

London sees as "almost certain" that the problems in the supply of medicines and equipment to the Russian troops “are contributing to a declining mood and an unwillingness (on the part of the military) to take offensive action.”

The Russian government hardly gives data on casualties in its ranks, but last week, after the announcement of the mobilization, he acknowledged that it had already lost almost 6,000 troops in the Ukraine. The Ukrainian Armed Forces, on the other hand, have raised this Friday to more than 59 thousand Russian casualties since February, with more than 500 deaths in the last day.

Last September 21, Vladimir Putin ordered the first mobilization of Russia since World War II, warning the West that if it continued its “nuclear blackmail”, Moscow would respond with the power of its vast arsenal.

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that partial mobilization entails the call for 300 thousand reservists and that it applies to those who have previous military experience.
