Russian governors need to ensure partial mobilization in full compliance with the announced recruitment criteria and not make mistakes, Speaker of the Federation Council Valentina Matvienko said in her telegram channel.

“Once again I ask each of you— consider that I am addressing personally— if necessary, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, be in constant contact with the military commissars, in direct communication with regional ombudsmen and members of the public, but ensure that partial mobilization is carried out in full and absolute compliance with the announced criteria. Without a single mistake!»— politician wrote.

According to her, information about incorrect cases of mobilization of citizens, “obviously not falling under the selection rules declared earlier by the Russian military leadership,” is already appearing and actively discussed in society and social networks. “It seems that somewhere it is admitted that a quick report is more important than a qualitatively fulfilling an important state task. Such excesses are absolutely unacceptable. And I think, quite rightly, they cause a sharp reaction in society,»,— the speaker of the Federation Council emphasized.

She pointed out that at present the country has an incredibly high level of patriotism, cohesion and support for the goals of a special military operation, so there should be no such cases of incorrect conscription. “People should see the responsibility of the government and feel the openness and fairness of all its actions,” — concluded Matvienko.

Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a partial mobilization in Russia on 21 September. Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that it would cover 300,000 people, or 1% of the country's mobilization reserve. According to the presidential decree, those called up for partial mobilization will have the status of military servicemen under contract and will receive payments and social guarantees as military personnel.

The Ministry of Defense explained that privates and sergeants under 35 years old, junior officers under 50 years old, senior officers are subject to partial mobilization. up to 55 years old. One of the main factors for conscription, the department calls the presence of combat experience among those called up from the reserve.
