In January, another wave of mobilization will begin in Russia, the We Can Explain Telegram channel reports , citing three unrelated sources in the military registration and enlistment offices of different regions.
According to the channel’s interlocutors, military registration and enlistment offices in the regions received orders to start intensive work on mobilization for the war in Ukraine from the Ministry of Defense. The authorities do not plan to officially announce the mobilization.
According to sources, the department has set the task for the military registration and enlistment offices to massively distribute and hand over subpoenas, as well as to conduct raids on the places of residence of conscripts.
A source in the St. Petersburg Commissariat told the channel that the military registration and enlistment offices warned that "there will be a lot of work in January and February." A source in the Moscow Commissariat added that the employees were ordered to "review the cases of conscripts and contractors in order to send them subpoenas and involve them in mobilization."
“What to do is unclear. Officially, the mobilization was never completed, and now everything has been shifted to the regions. But if mistakes suddenly happen (and they will definitely happen), then ordinary employees of the military enlistment offices and their bosses will be responsible, ”explained a source in the military registration and enlistment office of one of the regions in the northwest.
Earlier, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine claimed that from December 10, a new wave of “hidden mobilization” into the army could begin in Russia. Nestka also wrote about the second wave of mobilization, citing its own sources in the State Duma and the Presidential Administration.
