In the Russian army, in contrast to many western armies, it is customary to undergo initial training within operational units rather than in special training institutions.

A certain number of instructors are normally assigned within each brigade to train new recruits.

However, many of these so-called third battalions are currently deployed to Ukraine.

The lack of instructors and the rushed nature of the partial mobilization indicated that many soldiers were being sent to the front without adequate preparation.

This makes high losses likely.
