Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said Wednesday, Sep, 21, that Russia would mobilise 300,000 reservists, after President Vladimir Putin announced a partial military mobilisation over the conflict in Ukraine.

“Three hundred thousand reservists will be called up,” Shoigu said on state television, noting that this is only a fraction of Russia’s troops available to be called up.

Shoigu said  5,937 Russian soldiers have died in Ukraine since the February military intervention, in a rare admission of military losses from Moscow.
