The military commissariat of the Apastovsky and Kaybitsky districts of the Republic of Tatarstan sent a document to the administrations of settlements, which states that contracts will be concluded with men who are in the reserve for recruiting military units. This is reported by Sirena with reference to documents received from one of the readers.
“In order to fulfill the instructions of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin to increase the number of servicemen who served under the contract, the Ministry of Defense organized work on the recruitment of individual formations, military units and other military formations by citizens who are in the reserve, under the age of 60, by concluding with them contracts,” one of the documents says.
The military registration and enlistment office asked the administrations of settlements to take measures to notify citizens “born in 1965-1973 and younger” about the need to come to the military registration and enlistment office “to clarify documents.”
In addition, Sirena’s interlocutor showed an ad stating that all men liable for military service from the city of Bugulma under the age of 60 must appear at the military enlistment office by March 24. For what purpose, the announcement did not specify.
Telegram channel “Bloody Lady” published a letter from the military commissar of the Bugulma region, addressed to the heads of local enterprises. The document states that citizens under 60 years of age who are in reserve should come to the military registration and enlistment office to “clarify the data.”
Channel “Mobilization. News” published document of the military commissar of the Kamsko-Ustyinsky district of Tatarstan, which stated that men born in 1974-1984 should appear at the military registration and enlistment office. For what purpose, the document does not specify.
In mid-March, in more than 40 regions of Russia, military enlistment offices started send out summonses “to clarify military registration documents” and invitations to military training camps. In particular, such events were reported in the Republic of Mari El, Voronezh, Lipetsk, Yaroslavl, Tyumen and Penza areas, as well as in Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug. The authorities of the Russian Federation insist that this is a “common practice”.
