Where will the Kremlin get the money for the war?

18:33 21 September Kyiv, Ukraine

Well, Vladimir Putin collapsed Russian securities and stock indices with his statement about partial mobilization for the sake of continuing the war (the so-called "special military operation") in Ukraine.

The impoverishment and actual zeroing of the savings of Russian citizens is already a fait accompli. Of course, due to high energy prices (gas and oil), the budget of the aggressor country still has a fairly strong and long-term "safety cushion". But it has nothing to do with the well-being of ordinary Russian citizens, which will fly into the abyss of poverty.

All the money will be spent on ensuring partial mobilization, training and uniforming of those mobilized, as well as covering the needs of the occupied regions. Putin himself said that the financial support of those mobilized in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions will be at the same level as the provision of the military personnel of the Russian army.

This money will have to come from somewhere.. They will be taken from the pockets of residents of St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, Tyumen, Kazan and other cities.

Partial mobilization will inevitably lead to another massive blow to the Russian economy.
