About signing decision Putin said so in a special video message, the agency reports. Interfax.

According to the Kremlin head, the decree was signed at the proposal of the Defense Ministry “for the sake of protecting Russia, its sovereignty and territorial integrity, to ensure the security of the Russians and the inhabitants of the liberated areas.” He noted that the Russian army in Ukraine operates on the line of contact, whose length exceeds 1,000 km, and “essentially oppose the entire military machine of the collective West.”

According to Putin, under the announced mobilization, only reserve soldiers will be conscripted, primarily “those who have served in the armed forces, have certain military specialties and relevant experience”. Before being sent to the unit, they will undergo mandatory additional training, taking into account the experience of the war in Ukraine.

Putin also assured that all Russians called up for mobilization will receive the status, payments and all social guarantees from those serving under the contract. The decree gives employees of the military-industrial complex the right to defer national service for the period that they work for defense companies.

The State Duma and the Federation Council will be officially informed about the start of the mobilization on 21 September. The mobilization activities will start on the same day, Putin stressed. He instructed the heads of the regions to provide all necessary assistance to the work of military commissariats.

The decree on partial mobilization also implies an increase in production at defense industry companies, he added.

In the speech, Putin noted that the goals of the war in Ukraine remain unchanged and that “Russia has no right to have people living close to the country in Ukraine torn by executioners.”

He also promised support for “referendums” in the occupied territories of Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporozhye in Ukraine “on self-determination and their accession to Russia”.

In turn, the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Sergei Shoigu reported: in an interview with Rossiya-24 broadcaster that, as part of a partial mobilization, 300,000 reservists will be called up in Russia.

“Three hundred thousand reservists being called up,” the minister said.

According to him, the recruitment will not take place as part of a one-off action. Mobilization will affect 1.1% of the total mobilization resource.
