Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that mobilization in Russia would not turn a “military special operation” on Ukrainian territory into a war.
Peskov stressed that the decision to change the status of a “military special operation” had not been made.
Mobilization, according to the Kremlin spokesman, is a necessary measure, since Russia, having sent its troops to the territory of Ukraine, faced the military potential of NATO and a number of other countries unfriendly to Russia.
At the same time, the authorities promise to provide some training for the mobilized before they go to fight against the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which are not only armed with weapons from NATO countries, but are also trained by NATO instructors.
Russia has been conducting a “military special operation” on the territory of Ukraine since February 24. On September 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the mobilization. She has no deadlines, so it is possible that the mobilization will be extended until the end of the “military special operation”, the terms of which are also not indicated.
