Russian President Vladimir Putin addressed the country’s citizens and announced a partial mobilization. “To protect our homeland and our integrity, I consider it necessary to support partial mobilization,” he said on Wednesday morning, September 21.

Putin: Reserves will be drawn up

Putin referred to the decision of the self-proclaimed “DNR” and “LNR”, as well as the occupation authorities of the Kharkiv and Zaporozhye regions, to hold referendums on joining the Russian Federation and said Moscow would “do everything to ensure safe conditions” for referendums.”

In this regard, he announced the need to “defend our homeland” and his agreement to the proposal of the Russian Defense Ministry to carry out a partial mobilization. The corresponding decree has already been signed, the chambers of the Federal Assembly have been informed of the decision, mobilization starts on the same day, Putin said.

“Only the civilians who are in the reserve and especially those who have served in the armed forces, have certain military specialties and relevant experience, will be subject to military service. Those who have been called up for military service before being sent to the unit, will receive additional military training,” he added.

“Referenda” in four regions of Ukraine

Appointed the day before occupation troops “administrations” of two regions of Ukraine – the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions – as well as the “authorities” of the self-proclaimed “DPR” and “LPR” almost simultaneously announced the decision to so-called “referendums” on accession to Russia. Events in all four regions will be held from September 23 to 27, they said. Kirill Stremousov, a representative of the occupying “administration” of the Kherson region, noted that the “vote” would also be electronic.

On the same day, the State Duma of the Russian Federation adopted at second and third reading a bill that introduced the concepts of “mobilization”, “martial law” and “wartime” into the Criminal Code. On the evening of the same day, an appeal was made to Putin’s citizens, as well as Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, and later information appeared that the statement had been postponed until the next day.
