On the social network X (Twitter), he wrote that the American army is not able to recruit enough troops into its ranks.

"The U.S. military that existed in 1991 is no more. We have a weak personnel reserve," the colonel added.

Earlier, former US Armed Forces intelligence officer Scott Ritter said that the United States would not have enough forces now to defeat Russia on the battlefield.
