Putin may soon mobilise another two million soldiers – including 300,000 women – in a desperate attempt to fight Ukrainian forces.
Dmitry Peskov, one of the Russian president’s spokespeople, denied the Kremlin war-mongerer would conscript more troops to the front.
But Putin still refuses to sign the necessary decree which will end this current wave of mobilisation, fuelling rumours more is to come.
Russian sources have speculated up the huge numbers will be drafted as Russia continues to suffer humiliating defeats in Ukraine.
The General SVR Telegram channel alleged: ‘Putin considers it “sufficient” to call up another two million people, of which about 300,000 women.
‘A large number of victims among those mobilised, according to the president, will only rally Russian society and strengthen the current regime, and regardless of whether the result will be victory or defeat.’
Valery Solovey, former professor at Moscow’s prestigious Institute of International Relations, said: ‘The intention [is] to mobilise not 300,000, 400,000, or 500,000 but, with luck, up to two million people, including 300,000 women after the New Year celebrations.
‘Moreover, it is planned to conduct mobilisation at the same time as introducing martial law.’

He warned: ‘It is supposed to extend the martial law either to the entire Russia or to a significant part of its territory including the Russian capitals – the cities of Moscow and St Petersburg.’
It comes as Russian convicts are being forced to fight in Ukraine, with authorities threatening them with longer sentences and beatings if they refuse, The Mirror reports.

Some 500 prisoners have been killed fighting in Ukraine, having ‘volunteered’ themselves in exchange for freedom after the war.
A source said: ‘According to information gathered from what is being said by relatives it is impossible to refuse, as if prisoners do, they might disappear.’
Meanwhile new civilians or reservists mobilised may work in factories supporting the war effort.
‘You can be sent to work strengthening the defence capability of the country,’ the source added.
