New parts to protect the state border and create “operational depth” will be formed in the directions of the special military operation in Ukraine. This was stated by the head of the State Duma Defense Committee Andrei Kartapolov, TASS reports.
He also recalled that “we are talking about conscription for military service a little more than 1% of the total number of those liable for military service in the country.” In this case, we are talking about those people who have in-demand military specialties, combat experience and served in the armed forces. According to Kartapolov, we are not talking about conscripts, students and other citizens who have the right “not to be called up under the mobilization law.”
On September 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on holding a partial mobilization. According to Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, during the mobilization, 300,000 reservists will be called up, who will be trained before being sent to the special operation zone. The draft will not affect students and conscripts.
Earlier, Andrey Kartapolov said that graduates of the military departments of Russian universities can be called up for mobilization if their military specialties are in demand.
