“This work is already finished. Now, 222,000 people out of 300,000 have been mobilized in the formation troops. I think that all mobilization activities will be completed within about two weeks,” Putin said.
On September 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on a partial mobilization in the country. According to Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, 300 thousand people are subject to conscription from the reserve, primarily those with combat experience and the military registration specialty necessary for the troops.
