Putin says ‘no sense’ in mobilizing additional troops for service in Ukraine

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday there was no need to conduct an additional call-up of Russian reservists to fight in the so-called "special military operation" in Ukraine at the moment. Putin said of the more than 300,000 Russian reservists who were drafted in what Moscow called a "partial mobilization" in September and October, 150,000 were deployed in the zone of what Moscow calls its "special military operation" in Ukraine.
