Vladimir Putin has initiated the largest conscription drive in nearly a decade, summoning 150,000 Russian men to join the army amid growing tensions with Ukraine and uncertain support from Western nations.

The decree signed by Putin outlines a spring conscription campaign targeting citizens aged 18 to 30, who will be compelled to serve in the military between April and July, The Sun reported.

This move is widely seen as a preparation for potential hostilities against Ukraine.

In an effort to replenish dwindling ranks due to casualties in previous conflicts, Putin extended the maximum age for enlistment to 30. This amendment has facilitated the recruitment of a significant number of individuals into military service.

Despite assurances from the Russian government that conscripts won't be deployed to the Ukrainian conflict zone, past instances have shown otherwise.

There's concern that these new recruits could be sent to areas facing heavy Ukrainian assaults, such as Belgorod and Kursk, and coerced into signing contracts as regular soldiers against their will.

The timing of this mass conscription coincides with expectations of a spring offensive by Putin's forces against Ukraine, exploiting the nation's vulnerabilities and wavering support from Western allies.

Such a move could potentially escalate the conflict and further strain relations between Russia and NATO.

Furthermore, Putin's recent threats against NATO regarding the supply of F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine add to the escalating tensions. He warned of targeting any airfields housing these jets, highlighting the potential for a dangerous escalation if such aircraft were to be deployed against Russian interests.

Despite diplomatic efforts to de-escalate the situation, Putin's actions and rhetoric indicate a willingness to confront Western powers and assert Russia's dominance in the region, raising concerns about the potential for further instability and conflict.
