Regional ombudsmen told journalists about the content of complaints from citizens mobilized in Russia.

According to RBC, most appeals from reservists and their relatives were provoked by the arbitrariness of the authorities when calling people without the necessary medical examinations, the mobilization of sick people, large families and the only guardians of orphans.

“Complaints are also received about problems with uniforms, equipment and conditions for the mobilized”, - notes Forbes.

In total, reporters interviewed 21 human rights commissioners from different regions of the country. The picture looks the same everywhere.

According to the Russians, many military registration and enlistment offices in the regions do not comply with the priority recruitment criteria, calling people without any combat experience; not appropriate for age and health status; the medical examination of conscripts is carried out formally or its necessity is generally ignored.

And those who have already been called up are not provided with priority items and equipment. Complaints about uniforms come from the Omsk, Chelyabinsk, and Novosibirsk regions.

Boris Podolny, deputy head of the executive committee of the ONF, noted that, based on the results of the consideration of complaints, more than 1,300 people who had been illegally mobilized had already been returned home.

The largest number of complaints about poor-quality medical examinations came from reservists in Primorye: more than half of those who applied faced such a problem. They pointed out that some were called up despite exceeding the age limit for being in the reserve, others despite the deplorable state of health. Similar problems were revealed in the Penza, Volgograd, Chelyabinsk, Ulyanovsk, Amur, Astrakhan regions.

Earlier it was reported that for some reservists, mobilization turned out to be fatal: in only one recruiting center in the Sverdlovsk region, three reservists have died in recent days, and another conscripted into the army with the last stage of liver cirrhosis was sent home, where he immediately died.
