The law and the decree on mobilization presuppose its announcement, but the completion or termination of mobilization is in no way regulated by normative acts. Human rights activist Pavel Chikov writes about this in his Telegram channel.
He clarified that the authorities of the regions do not have any authority to complete the mobilization, although they assist in its announcement. According to him, the need for a new wave of conscription may arise at any moment. Chikov added that it is necessary to wait for the decree of Russian President Vladimir Putin, and before that, the “partial” mobilization announced by him and the legal regime are preserved.
"Issued summons to appear for mobilization do not lose force in connection with the statement of the mayor of Moscow or the governor of any other region."
The human rights activist suggested that “quotas” for mobilization were lowered through the Ministry of Defense, and as they are fulfilled, the mobilization efforts of military registration and enlistment offices and “supporting bodies (police, janitors, employers)” are completed.
Chikov also recalled that some regions resumed conscription, although the authorities denied the "second wave". So, the press secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov stated that "there is no new wave of mobilization in Russia." But the regional authorities of the Kursk and Rostov regions wrote about a "new mobilization task."
“Since the regulations and instructions of the Ministry of Defense are completely non-public, and the statements of the authorities are contradictory and do not give rise to any rights and obligations, we, as lawyers, strongly recommend not to relax, not to leave the room, not to make a mistake,” Chikov concluded.
Earlier, The Insider reported that the police again began raids in Russian cities to hand over subpoenas to men who fall under the criteria for "partial" mobilization. Employees stop men at metro stations in Moscow, guard them near the entrances to the residential complex in St. Petersburg. Also, law enforcement officers in some cities “comb” shopping centers and take even the homeless to military registration and enlistment offices. Senator, head of the Committee on Constitutional Legislation and State Building Andrei Klishas said that such delivery of subpoenas on the street is illegal.
