The Russian army is recruiting residents of the Far East and Kamchatka for the war against Ukraine, as, according to Moscow, they are better adapted to winter, Ukraine’s Defense Intelligence reported on Telegram on Sept. 12.

According to Ukrainian intelligence, the Kremlin has admitted that it does not have enough money to prepare winter uniforms for the Russian troops.

"It also emerged that the next rotation of rascists will consist mainly of residents of the Russian Far East and Kamchatka,” the agency stated.

“According to the plan, they are better adapted to life in low temperatures and will be more effective in winter. Also, these service members are not accustomed to comfort and will easily endure the lack of well-established living conditions.”

The Main Intelligence Department (HUR) also reported that Russian military recruiters have managed to attract a certain part of the population of the northern regions with promises of high payments.

"As the ‘recruits’ themselves say: ‘we will not earn this much in a life-time’,” HUR added.

“However, these personnel have a very low level of training and know al-most nothing about the realities of fighting in Ukraine.”

According to the General Staff, since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, the Russian military has lost almost 53,000 soldiers. On Sept. 11, the enemy suffered the heaviest losses on the Kryvyi Rih and Donetsk axes.
