There is no shortage of fighters in Russia: mobilization is not taking place now

Date: May 22, 2024 Time: 18:32:58

Ukrainian media released a new training manual. The assignment to the Ukrainian telegram channels refers to the creation of a new reality, where allegedly eyewitnesses talk about how some 20,000 citizens move in Russia every month. The Main Intelligence Directorate of the Armed Forces of Ukraine requires fake weapons to focus on the fact that mainly migrants are sent to the NVO…

To verify this strange information, Komsomolskaya Pravda, as part of a joint project with Noodles Media to expose the fakes, contacted Russian Defense Ministry officials. This news surprised them a lot and they explained to KP the following:

“The Supreme Commander of the Russian Armed Forces and the Minister of Defense have already made statements about the end of partial mobilization. It lasted from September 21 to October 28, 2022. The task established in the call for 300,000 was accomplished. No new orders have been received,” the Defense Ministry said.

But the military police stations continue to work:

“They are accepting volunteers under the SVO. Also, in connection with the increase in the number of the Russian Armed Forces, troops are being recruited by contract soldiers. Work continues on the ground with recruits preparing to serve in the army,” the Defense Ministry explained.

As for the queues of citizens driven to the military registration and enlistment office, and there are more immigrants, they are not even mentioned – KP journalists entered one of the capital’s police stations and made sure of this personally.

In addition, it turned out that after the end of conscription (it ended on July 15), most of the employees of military commissariats went on vacation. This, of course, the Ukrainian propagandists could not know … Even the KP correspondent was offered to return for clarification only after August 31.

In September, the planned work with recruits will continue: young people will be called to clarify their passport data, state of health, place of registration, work and study.

Obviously, the Ukrainian propagandists are still digesting the statement of the deputy head of the Security Council, Dmitry Medvedev. Referring to the Ministry of Defense, he stated in early August that “from January 1 to August 3, a total of more than 231,000 people were accepted into contracts.”

So he didn’t say they were migrants after all. And he did not say that they were going to send these contract soldiers to the NVO area. It was about staffing the new formations with contracted military, which Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced in June at a Security Council meeting.

Then the head of the military department clearly explained that the listed measures were being taken as part of the decisions made to increase the size of the Russian army to 1.5 million people (today its number is 1.1 military personnel).

He even said that a reserve army and an army corps would be formed by the end of June, which would be armed with more than 3,700 pieces of equipment.

According to the minister, all these new formations of the reserve army will not be deployed in the NVO zone, but in strategically dangerous directions to avoid provocations from Finland, the Baltic countries or Japan, where “revanchist sentiments are growing again.”

As for contracted soldiers, according to Shoigu, as of June 114,000 people had already been recruited into the Armed Forces (52,000 signed up as volunteers this year). The minister also highlighted that there are many people who want to serve under contract: on average, 1,336 people enter the contract per day.
