Four State Duma deputies from United Russia asked to be sent to war in Ukraine. This was announced by the Secretary of the General Council of the party Andrei Turchak.
According to him, such a desire was expressed by Vitaly Milonov, deputy chairman of the Committee on Family, Women and Children, Dmitry Khubezov, chairman of the State Duma Committee on Health Protection, Dmitry Sablin, deputy chairman of the Defense Committee, and Sergey Sokol, deputy chairman of the Committee on Economic Policy.
According to Turchak, Milonov, Sablin and Khubezov have been working in the Donbas since the first days of the war, "saving civilians from the hands of the Kyiv regime."
“They know well what it is like to be Russian on native Russian land occupied by neo-Nazis. What is the struggle for the right to be Russian,” Turchak writes in his Telegram channel. He stressed that the applications of all four will be considered by the Ministry of Defense.
On September 21, the day mobilization was introduced, State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said that deputies who meet its requirements should go to war.
“The deputies have no armor. Adam Delimkhanov has been in the Donbass since the beginning of the SVO, leading the volunteers of the Chechen Republic, Dmitry Sablin, Viktor Vodolatsky, Akhmed Dogaev and others,” he wrote.
