Mobilization in Russian: Chaotic and Mass. Even the dead are given summons

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, people with disabilities and even the deceased – informs the channel.

In Yakutia in the Russian Far East, men to whom a mass summons were sent out on Thursday they were put on military buses and taken away in an unknown direction – says Możem Objasnit, posting a video of saying goodbye to those mobilized with loved ones and the moment of getting into the vehicles.

According to the channel in the Republic of Buryatia, summons are sent out to everyone without exception. At school, classes are canceled, round-ups are organized, and reports appear that men are being “pulled out of their beds”.

Możem Objasnit quotes Aleksandra Garmażałowa, director of the Free Buryatia 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 arrive virtually 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 his speech on Wednesday, the president of Russia Vladimir Putin announced a partial mobilization and threatened to “use all means”to defend Russia from the 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.
