Mobilization in Russia

Russian President Putin announced mobilization on 21 September. Since then, weak protests have broken out which are, however, still persisting and picking up steam in Russia’s regions such as Dagestan and Siberia. Some Russian regions have seen total mobilization. The head of a military enlistment office was injured in a shootout by a man protesting the mobilization; another Russian man was reported to set himself on fire in protest. Russia’s Rostov Oblast was closed amid the mobilization drive, Ukraine’s General Staff reported.

Queues had formed at Russia’s borders with Georgia and Kazakhstan as Russian men seek to evade the draft.

Ukraine has urged residents of occupied Crimea to evade the draft and protest, and men of Ukraine’s occupied regions to leave immediately.

Ukraine’s Head of Mission to Crimea has stated that mobilization summonses are being disproportionately given to representatives of Crimea’s indigenous people, the Crimean Tatars, who opposed Russia’s occupation.

Hitherto, it has been observed that before Russia openly announced mobilization, non-Russian nationalities were disproportionately targeted in Russia, leading to accusations of Putin stealthily conducting ethnic cleansing.
