The Kremlin is not discussing the issue of mobilization of those liable for military service: there is no talk of this now, said the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov.

As Forbes notes with reference to the statement of the Kremlin representative, the country's leadership is not currently discussing the issue of full or partial mobilization of those liable for military service.

“At the moment, no, this is out of the question,” Peskov said.

The need for mobilization in the country on the eve of the State Duma meeting on September 13 was announced by the head of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation Gennady Zyuganov, and the day before, Mikhail Sheremet, a member of the State Duma Committee on Security and Anti-Corruption, spoke in the same vein, noting that “without full mobilization, transfer to a military footing, including including the economy, we will not achieve the desired results.”

“First of all, maximum mobilization of forces and resources is required. We need to unite society and clearly define the main priorities,” Zyuganov said.

A day earlier, amid news of a "regrouping" of Russian troops in Ukraine, journalists also asked Peskov about the Kremlin's plans to announce a general mobilization. But then Peskov evaded a direct answer, redirecting the requests of representatives in the media to the Ministry of Defense. At the same time, Senator Andrei Klimov stressed that there is no need in the country to announce an additional recruitment of reservists for the troops. According to him, now Russia does not need either the announcement of a general mobilization or the introduction of martial law.

Meanwhile, the Nara learned that the North Atlantic Alliance (NATO) intends to deploy additional forces on the eastern border in order to protect its territory. This was announced by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. He added that the alliance will defend "every inch of its territory." The deployment of new forces should send a signal to Russia that the bloc is ready for defense and a protracted conflict.
