There is that.

Although if Russia is anticipating a replay of the Battle of Kursk, the end result would be the elimination of the Russian Army. Marshall Zhukov's forces at Kursk suffered over 800,000 casualties in that battle.

Even with Putin's partial mobilization casualties on that scale would end every regular military formation Russia has anywhere near the Ukrainian theater of operations.
