Jamestown Analyst Kseniya Kirillova quoted by G-Zero on Putin’s ‘partial mobilization’

Jamestown Foundation Analyst Kseniya Kirillova offered her expert analysis on Putin’s “partial mobilization” announcement to G-Zero.

“The Kremlin calls it ‘partial’ so as not to cause panic among the population, but in practice, we are dealing with the first wave of general mobilization.”

In early September, Kirillova correctly predicted that the referenda—which aim to induct some 15 percent of Ukrainian territory into Russia—and the mobilization would go hand-in-hand.
