Leader of the "DNR" Denis Pushilin has promised that a general conscription into illegal armed groups would be held in the occupied territory of Donetsk oblast. He announced this at his press conference on Wednesday.
He explained the need for general "military conscription" by the inevitability of war with Ukraine.
"A belligerent state cannot but focus on the next generation. It is necessary that the male population has military specialties. As the experience of 2014 has shown, it is thanks to the men who have gone through the army and Afghanistan and who is able to hold weapons in their hands that The Republic has stayed out at the very beginning. The call is trial. Voluntary. Perhaps, there will be a general call when everything is ready", - local media quoted Pushilin.
As previously reported, the "DNR" and "LNR" leaders signed "decrees" on the first conscription for military service for 200 young men under the age of 27 years.
