    Is there ANY mention of actual, useful number of russian army reserve? Not the nominal 2 million obliged under law to be called upon into reserve units but a figure that actually gets at least a week of training per year? What sort of figure might one realistically expect here? Tens of thousands? Hundreds?

    Very few. There were plans to have a 100,000 active reserve but not sure how many or if it ever was put into action.
