“The figure was corrected several times and eventually came to a million,” the source said.

To confirm this information, the publication also tried to contact the executive authorities, who, as a rule, receive the full texts of presidential decrees, including those classified as “for official use”.

According to sources from various ministries, they have not received the full text of the decision and it is not viewable through the interdepartmental document management system.

Press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov, commenting to the Russian propagandists RIA Novosti, referred to the information that paragraph No. 7 of the decree mentions the possibility of mobilizing 1 million conscript citizens as a “lie”. “This is a lie,” Peskov said.

As of September 22, nearly 335 thousand Russians signed a petition against partial mobilization, the decree of which was signed by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Due to the staff shortage of the Russian army for the war against Ukraine, the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin signed a decree on partial mobilization in Russia. Measures to implement the decree will begin on September 21. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said 300,000 reservists would be called up as part of a partial mobilization.

In turn, the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Sergei Shoigu reported: in an interview with Rossiya-24 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.

As reported on September 20th The State Duma of the Russian Federation has unanimously adopted in the second and third reading, a draft law introducing concepts such as “mobilization”, “martial law” and “wartime” into the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.
