According to TASS, first of all, we are talking about the mobilization of the first-class conscripts - soldiers under 35 years old and officers under 45 years old. Kartapolov has already indicated that new units will be formed to strengthen the protection of the state border. Meanwhile, in St. Petersburg, the first commission in Russia for the partial mobilization of the population was created. The start of mobilization in Russia was announced by President Putin in an address to the nation on September 21.
On the same day, a corresponding decree was published on the Kremlin website, which took effect immediately. In accordance with the presidential decree, the government sends the funds necessary for mobilization activities to the regions.
It is expected that about 300,000 reservists will be drafted into the ranks of the Russian Armed Forces.
