The President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, issued a decree on the call-up of citizens who are in reserve for military training.

The BBC reports this with reference to a document published on March 1 on the Official Internet Portal of Legal Information.

According to the decree of the president of the aggressor state, in 2024, citizens who are in reserve will be called up for military training in the armed forces, Russian Guard troops, rescue military formations of the Ministry of Emergency Situations, state security agencies, and the FSB.

On the basis of the decree, the mobilization department of the Ministry of Defense prepares the corresponding directive, which is sent to the military committees of the regions, after which summonses begin to be sent to citizens who are in reserve.

Russian propagandists assure that this draft of reservists is a planned event.

It will be recalled that at the end of last year 2023, the President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, said that during the announced "partial mobilization", 300,000 people were drafted into the army.

There is no need for a new wave of mobilization.
