The President announced the mobilization of troops.
Vladimir Putin delivered an emergency address to the citizens of Russia. The President of the country announced a partial mobilization, which is necessary to protect the Donbass. We tell you who will be taken into the army first.
Vladimir Putin and Sergei Shoigu noted that more than 300,000 reservists would be called up for service. “In accordance with federal laws of May 31, 1996 No. 61-FZ “On Defense”, of February 26, 1997 No. 31-FZ “On mobilization training and mobilization in the Russian Federation” and of March 28, 1998 No. 53 -FZ “On military duty and military service” I decide: 1. To announce partial mobilization in the Russian Federation from September 21, 2022. 2. To carry out the call of citizens for military service for mobilization in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. Citizens called up for military service by mobilization have the status of military personnel serving in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation under a contract,” the head of state said live.
Thus, military personnel in the reserve from 25 to 40 years old will go to the army – these are fighters of the first and second stage (private, sergeant, warrant officer, midshipman).
“Not everyone will be eligible. Only those specialties that were not part of the Russian army. These are, most likely, motorized riflemen, artillerymen, gunners, paratroopers, scouts. Reservists are people who have already served in the army. Everyone who is engaged in studies is in some special government jobs, for example, employees of the metro, defense plants – they will not be subject to conscription“, – explained retired colonel Anatoly Matviychuk.
The head of the State Duma Committee on Defense Andrei Kartapolov also told who should be sent to the service. According to him, first we are talking about those liable for military service of the first category – soldiers under 35 years old and officers under 45. Then graduates of military departments are mobilized if their specialties are in demand.
“According to part 2 of Art. 21 of the law “On mobilization training”, citizens who are registered with the military, from the moment the mobilization is announced, “it is forbidden to leave their place of residence without the permission of the military commissariats“, – said Kartapolov.
Perhaps the army will touch the second category, but this is unlikely.
The bill proposes to provide citizens with three or more children with the opportunity to enter the mobilization human reserve, if they have such a desire. Currently, this category of citizens is subject to unconditional exemption from conscription for military training.
In addition, in accordance with the amendments, “a mobilization deferment from military service is granted to citizens who have four or more dependent children under the age of 16, with the exception of those who are in the mobilization manpower reserve.
The mobilization manpower reserve is understood as citizens who are in the reserve and who have duly concluded a contract on staying in the mobilization manpower reserve.
The mobilization human resource refers to citizens who are in the reserve and are not part of the reserve, that is, everyone else.
