Mobilized Russians are being taken to the front without prior preparation.
This is reported by the Russian human rights project “The First Department”.
It is noted that men who are called up as part of partial mobilization do not undergo a medical examination and are not engaged in preparation for service.
Human rights activists publish a video of a Russian serviceman from the 1st Tank Regiment being transferred to the Kherson region.
“We were officially told that there would be no preparation before being sent to the combat zone. The regiment’s official commanders confirmed this information: we will be sent to Kherson on the 29th,” the occupant said.
He stressed that “no training, no shooting, no theoretical training – nothing.”
Mobilization in Russia
On September 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin, in response to the defeat in the Kharkov region, announced a partial mobilization in Russia.
According to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, up to 300,000 people who already have combat experience should be drafted. However, the media points to the secret clause of Putin’s decree, which makes it possible to mobilize up to a million people.
There are already facts of mobilization of students, people with obvious health problems and the like. Also in Moscow, they started talking about a ban on leaving the country for men of military age.
Anti-war protests in Moscow have been going on for several days. During September 24, the security forces detained up to a thousand citizens in 32 cities. On September 25, residents of Dagestan came out to protest.
According to preliminary estimates of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Russian command during the first wave can mobilize up to 40 thousand people, since there simply will not be enough equipment for more.
However, it is unlikely that the Russian Federation will be able to solve logistical and administrative problems in order to collect even 300,000 troops.
Western analysts emphasize that this step is actually an admission that Russia has exhausted the supply of volunteers who are ready to fight in Ukraine.
