Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that partial mobilization will be announced in Russia. He made such a statement during an address to the Russians, shown on the morning of September 21.
“In order to protect our homeland and integrity, I consider it necessary to support partial mobilization,” the president said (quoted by TV channel REN).
Only those citizens who are in the reserve and, above all, those who served in the armed forces, have certain military specialties and relevant experience, will be subject to conscription for military service. Those called up for military service before being sent to the units will necessarily undergo additional military training.
