Chaotic mobilization in Russia. Summons even sent to the dead

Mobilization in Russia is chaotic and without a plan, it is massive; The authorities send mobilization cards to the dead, and those mobilized by force cut them off from the outside world and deprive them of contact with their loved ones, informs the independent channel Możem Objasnit on Telegram. In the Buryatia region, summons were sent to long deceased people.

The “partial” mobilization announced by Putin on Wednesday is being carried out by the authorities of individual regions of the Russian Federation without any preparation, chaotically and on a massive scale. There are reports from all over the country about how the authorities are trying to organize a mass enlistment into the army, including students, disabled and even the deceased – informs the channel.

In Yakutia in the Russian Far East, men to whom a mass summons were sent out were already put on military buses and transported to an unknown destination on Thursday, reports Możem Objasnit, posting a video saying goodbye to those mobilized with their loved ones and the moment of getting into vehicles.

By channel in the Republic of Buryatia, appeals are sent to everyone without exception. The classes are canceled at school, round-ups are organized, there are reports that men are “being pulled out of their beds”. Możem Objasnit quotes Aleksandra Garmażalova, director of the Free Buryat Foundation: “In Buryatia they mobilize everyone, budget workers and those who work in business. (…) People are asking how to avoid being sent to war. New inquiries are coming almost every second. There are many questions about how to go to Mongolia (…) This is one of the scariest nights in the history of our republic“.

Free Buryatia also states that summonses are sent to people who have died for years.

In the town of Ocha in Sakhalin, 100 mobilized men aged 21 to 52 were locked in a workers’ hostel and their phones were taken. The men underwent a “medical qualification”, which consisted in measuring their blood pressure. It is not known what their future fate will be.

In an address on Wednesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a partial mobilization and threatened to “use all means” to defend Russia from an alleged threat from the West. Protesters took to the streets of Russian cities, but the protests did not last long due to mass detentions. At the police stations, the detained men were given summons to the army for the next day.
