About 10,000 Russians came to the military registration and enlistment offices, without waiting for a summons, a day after the announcement of partial mobilization, said Rear Admiral Vladimir Tsimlyansky, representative of the Main Organizational and Mobilization Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces.
“During the first day about 10 thousand citizens arrived at the military commissariats on their own, without waiting for a summons, — Tsimlyansky said (quote from RIA Novosti).
Partial mobilization was announced by President Vladimir Putin on the morning of September 21, explaining its need to protect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the country, ensuring the security of the people and “people in the liberated territories.” Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that 300,000 reservists will be mobilized and will be trained or retrained.

The department later clarified that privates and sergeants are subject to mobilization call & mdash; up to 35 years old, junior officers— up to 50 years old, senior & mdash; up to 55 years old. First of all, shooters, tankers, artillerymen, drivers will be called. Those who are registered with the military and who are abroad “on a short trip” can also be mobilized. Mobilization will not affect those permanently residing abroad and not registered with the military.
