– Valery Alexandrovich, please tell me who is subject and who is not subject to partial mobilization? I mean certain social groups or civilian specialties: students, which Putin and Shoigu talked about, business people, large families …

– I do not work in the General Staff, so I cannot answer precisely and specifically, but in general terms: since mobilization is mentioned in part, first of all those men who have the specialties now needed for combat operations, for work in the rear, for work behind the front line. It is necessary to start from this, and not from social groups. My specialty is the combat squad operator that launches strategic missiles. I think they can do without me. Besides, I’m in my sixties.

I served in the missile forces in the 80’s. Probably people like me are not needed. And other specialties, and the list of such specialties, apparently, has already been drawn up, and on the basis of this list, men will be called. It seems to me that there should be such logic here. What does social group mean? We call on workers and collective peasants, but no intelligentsia? It’s not clear.

– And about payments and fees – how does it change in these terms? Money is the most powerful incentive, in fact one of the most important… so how is the situation going to change here?

– There is the experience of regions where whole battalions were made up of volunteers. So I was recently in Bashkiria and there they told me about it. And of course there are contracts with these people and very decent rewards are provided under these contracts. Since the presidential decree says that all mobilized people will enter into contracts, I assume that in the near future the newly mobilized people will follow the same schedule as is happening now. It’s not like, excuse me, all the same rewards are given here in 1941. And the families of those who will be mobilized will not be without money.

– Valery Alexandrovich, I can not help but wonder – someone does not want to go to war for various reasons, but he is called – will the Human Rights Council help such people?

– I’m not sure I’m ready to answer your question positively. Because it’s all very dramatic. And a very serious war is being waged against us. You see, when they say – ah, ah, we attacked Ukraine – it’s not true. We just need to remember this story – NATO’s expansion, our endless attempts at negotiations. This is a cruel, unprecedented pressure that is being exerted on our country after the Second World War. And now it is already quite clear: huge supplies of weapons to the Ukrainian army, the intelligence service found out that 150 NATO specialists work in the Ukrainian army and actually organize its actions, thousands of mercenaries – well, what is there to talk about now? Ordinary NATO units have just entered the Ukrainian area of ​​operations, you see. There is a tremendous force against us. You must be aware of this. Yes, it is very tragic. But it is. Life is not only made up of joy, it is also made up of difficult periods. We are currently living in this difficult period. We must unite and be adequate for this historic moment.
