In the Russian regions, they began to prohibit citizens liable for military service to travel outside the country. So far, the ban applies to two regions: Samara and Sverdlovsk, human rights activist Pavel Chikov and It's My City write.
Pavel Chikov published the orders of the chief military commissars of several regions on his Telegram channel. So far, there is no single decision regarding the ban on those liable for military service to leave Russia. So, in the Samara region, the military commissar initially forbade ordinary and reserve officers from leaving the district or city. But then the order was corrected : it included a clause on a ban on leaving the country. At the same time, the BBC Russian Service writes that at least one of her interlocutors was able to cross the border on the night of September 23. He left the Samara region through the Orenburg region.
The same in the Sverdlovsk region, claims It's My City: they also edited the order of the military commissar.
In Tatarstan, a ban on leaving the region was also initially prescribed , but then all restrictions were lifted , writes Chikov. There are no travel restrictions in Moscow, and no plans to confiscate vehicles from citizens and businesses. In Mordovia , there is also no ban on traveling anywhere. In Chuvashia , Yakutia , Tver region , Dagestan , according to documents from the military commissar, it is impossible to leave the district.
At the same time, the order of the military commissar in Chechnya "could not be found," writes Pavel Chikov. The head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, said earlier that the mobilization announced by President Vladimir Putin would not affect the region, because the republic had already "overfulfilled the conscription plan by 254%."
