Putin called talks about a new mobilization meaningless

7 декабря 2022, 16:30
Russian President Vladimir Putin said that talk of additional mobilization in the country does not make sense.

Answering questions from members of the Human Rights Council (HRC) about the progress of the military special operation on the territory of Ukraine and the possibility of additional mobilization, Putin said that today out of 300,000 mobilized 150,000 are in the SMO zone, of which only 77,000 are in combat units, the rest in the Territorial Defense Forces.

Another 150 thousand mobilized so far are at the training grounds of the Ministry of Defense - in fact, in reserve, RIA Novosti notes.

From this, the president called for the conclusion that in the near future there will be no additional mobilization of citizens in Russia.

Earlier, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov denied information about the possible start of a new wave of mobilization in the country. Recall that the reason for the mass concern of citizens regarding the possibility of a new wave of mobilization in the country was the absence of an official decree of the President of the Russian Federation on the completion of mobilization.
