  • The Russian President has admitted mistakes in calling up reservists.

  • Men were mistakenly called up who were not suitable for the war because of old age or illness.

  • The Kremlin chief called on the Prosecutor General’s Office to pursue violations of the mobilization.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has a week after Start of partial mobilization criticized mistakes in the call-up of reservists for his war against Ukraine. “All mistakes must be corrected,” Putin said at a National Security Council meeting on Thursday. For days, reservists have been complaining that they were being drafted into military service despite fatal chronic illnesses, old age or other exclusion criteria.

Violations of the mobilization should be prosecuted

There are many questions, mistakes should not be allowed, said Putin. Anyone who was mistakenly sent to the front must return home. This also applies to fathers of large families. The Kremlin chief called on the Prosecutor General’s Office to pursue violations of the mobilization.

The Russian Defense Ministry allows 300,000 reservists to move in, which after numerous defeats of the army should hold the occupied territories of Ukraine. Many complain that they are sent to the front completely unprepared – without the right equipment and without military training.

Reports of ruthless behavior when conscripted

Putin again stressed that the conscripts had to go through military training. Reservists with special military knowledge and experience should be drafted. But everyone would have to be prepared for the mission, said the President. For days there have been reports that the district military replacement offices act ruthlessly when conscripted and also recruit reservists who officially do not fall under the partial mobilization. “It is necessary to look at each individual case,” Putin said.

The mobilization, which was rejected by large parts of the population, triggered the largest anti-war protests in months. There were also arson attacks on conscription offices. In addition, the recruitment of reservists for Putin’s war of aggression against Ukraine triggered the largest mass exodus in history of its more than 20 years of power. Hundreds of thousands of Russians have left the country.
