In St. Petersburg, the main mobilization activities have been completed, the press service of the governor's administration said .
“Petersburgers subject to conscription have been notified in full. The recruitment of personnel is completed. Relevant work continues,” the press service said.
The suspension of mobilization in Moscow was announced on 17 October.
Please note that the law and the decree on mobilization require its announcement, but the completion or termination of mobilization is in no way regulated by normative acts, human rights activist Pavel Chikov points out . He clarifies 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 emphasizes that we need to wait for Vladimir Putin's decree, and before that, the "partial" mobilization and legal regime announced by him are preserved.
