IS chaos in Russia after the announcement by Russian President Vladimir Putin, who started the partial military mobilization, that is a lever that will bring another 300,000 soldiers to the battlefield and will concern “reservist citizens” or who already have experience in the armed forces . Air traffic went haywire, other men – those with a visa Shengen – they headed en masse towards the Finland with the hope of being able to cross the border, while many citizens took to the streets to protest. But is military mobilization really valid for all reservists or men with previous experience in the Russian armed forces? Judging by the phone calls made by Dmitry Nizovtsevmember of the ng Anti-corruption Foundation founded by the political opponent of the Kremlin Alexei Navalny, it would seem not. Nizovtsev pretended to be an employee of the military registration and enlistment office and called some children of the officials and deputies closest to Vladimir Putin to summon them for medical examinations to be carried out before being included among the 300,000 men called by the Russian president to defend the country e to ensure a “correct conduct” of the annexation referendums to be held in the people’s republics of Donestk And Lugansk and in the regions of Cherson And Zaporizhzhia.

If Vladimir Putin says I have to go, I’ll go. But I shouldn’t be on the list. ” The son of Putin’s spokesperson, he has served in the past in the past RVSN RF, the Strategic Missile Forces of the Russian Federation, a military body independent of the Moscow Armed Forces and specialized in the use of nuclear weapon systems. But Peskov Jr. wasn’t the only one contacted. Nizovtsev he also phoned to Alexei Mishustinson of the prime minister Mikhail Mishustin, who replied “that he still has no intention of presenting himself at the front”.
