Russian president vladimir putin announced a partial mobilization. The leader of the rashists voiced the relevant information during his appeal to citizens.
"I consider it necessary to make the following decision. It is fully adequate to the threats we face. Namely, to protect our fatherland, protect its sovereignty and territorial integrity, to ensure the security of our people and people in the liberated territories, I consider it necessary to support the proposal of the Ministry of Defense and the General Staff on the conduct of partial mobilization in the Russian Federation", - putin stated.
He also stressed that only citizens who are now in the reserve and, above all, those who served in the Armed Forces, have certain military specialties and experience, will be subject to military service.
Those mobilized for military service before being sent to units will be required to undergo additional military training, taking into account the experience of a "special military operation".
Mobilization activities will begin today.
As previously reported, putin's appeal was planned on the evening of September 20, but it was postponed without explanation.
