Russia’s Putin orders formation of new military reserve force

Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered the creation of a new reserve armed force as part of steps to improve training and military readiness at a time of international tensions with the West over Ukraine. The new reserve force has been discussed for several years and was first ordered by Putin in 2012 shortly after his re-election as President. It will be distinct from Russia’s existing military reserves because the part-time personnel will be paid a monthly sum and train regularly.
