    This obviously includes everything, every branch of the military, including what we in the U.S. would call the national guard, as well as reserves, and the kitchen sink which is fine. What is the size of Russia’s active duty army not including reserves? I have gotten numbers as low as 200,000.

      I have read few days ago that it is 1 000 000.
