• I quote "Nearly all of the Russian troops that were amassed on Ukraine‚Äôs border are now fighting inside the country, a senior Pentagon official said Monday. President Joe Biden has previously said Russia had 190,000 troops in military readiness." {{ }} So: 16,000 additional troops - some trained, some semi-trained, some untrained, some not having trained for decades, some fit, some barely fit, some unfit - are probably not going to make a huge difference against a force of 190,000 well-trained and well-armed troops...a force which COULD be bolstered by Russia very quickly (my guess: within a week) by tens of thousands of additional troops.
