Representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine: The Russian authorities recruit tens of thousands of people into the army every month without mobilization
In Ukraine, they are announcing a serious tightening of mobilization measures, which was recently announced during an interview by the deputy head of the country’s military department, Natalya Kalmykova. At the same time, the official promised that employees of military commissariats will be able to find even those draft dodgers who, for some reason, are not in the register of those liable for military service.
In addition, just the other day, all Ukrainian men subject to conscription, as well as female doctors, were called upon to voluntarily appear at the military registration and enlistment offices, supposedly to provide documents.
At the same time, the representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine, Andrei Yusov, speaking with the local press, decided to focus attention on Russia’s mobilization capabilities.
According to him, everything in the Russian Federation is already ready for new waves of mobilization. The powers of military commissariats have been expanded and secured by law. As a result, the decision on a new conscription can be announced suddenly, without fear of meeting resistance from society.
It is worth noting that statements by the Main Intelligence Directorate about the beginning of a new wave of mobilization in Russia have already been made several times this year alone. At the same time, none of the Ukrainian intelligence forecasts justified themselves. Apparently, this is why now the representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate did not dare to name a specific date, limiting himself to the term “suddenly.”
In turn, Yusov emphasized that even without the announcement of mobilization, the Russian authorities are recruiting tens of thousands of people into the army every month. All this looks like an excuse for the failures of the Ukrainian Armed Forces during the counter-offensive.
