Russia to begin partial mobilisation – Putin

Russian mobilisation news

 

 

The measure will apply to members of the reserve forces and those with military experience.

In a nationwide address on Wednesday morning, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a partial military mobilisation. He explained that the Defense Ministry has recommended drawing military reservists into active service, as the country faces a protracted conflict in Ukraine and Donbass.

The measure is sensible and necessary under the circumstances, Putin stated, adding that he has already signed an order for the call-up to start immediately. The Armed Forces will draw on military reservists only, and those who have completed national service, the president added. He promised that they will be provided with additional training along with all the benefits due to people involved in active duty.

In his speech, Putin accused Kiev of backing away from peace talks, acting on direct orders from its Western allies. Instead of negotiating, the Ukrainian government has beefed up its military with NATO-trained troops, many of whom are neo-Nazi extremists, he said.

Russian forces sent to Ukraine in February have secured a large portion of territory claimed by the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics as well as parts of Ukraine, and the resulting frontline stretches over 1,000km, according to the Russian president.

Putin also commented on the upcoming referendums in the two Donbass republics and two regions of Ukraine currently controlled to a large extent by Russian troops. The territories have announced plebiscites on whether become part of Russia, with the ballots scheduled to start on Friday. Putin said his government will respect the outcome of the four referendums, and provide security for the voting process.

  1. Putin does not bluff. The deep state wants to weaken and destroy Russia. The plot is well known in many RAND reports, NATO statements etc. Any self respecting soveriegn nation will defend itself against extenal plotting to regime change, colour revolutions etc. Long live Putin and let the NWO aka Globalist hegemony has to be defeated for the welfare of the billions of normal people. Or else only transhumans will inherit the earth.

  2. It’s absurd how the West characterise Putin as a madman, yet every one of his speeches without exception is full of detailed rationale and history.
    Whereas in the West, Biden can’t find the edge of the stage unassisted..
    I wish Putin and Russia Godspeed in their mission..

  3. Putin is one of very few leaders in the world today that make any sense.
    Hope he kicks the deep state’s butt good and hard for the sake of humanity.

    Pray for a Russian victory, it will help all of us overthrow the evil dictators that
    have ruined our lives and still remain in power, crushing our democracies, our economies
    and our medical autonomy.
    Before the corrupt Western leaders rip out what is left of the heart of humanity and kill us all,
    and they will, if they are not stopped.

    • Who are you kidding, Putin and the West-Ukraine-US accord are equally corrupt.
      Demonising one certainly doesn’t make the other an angel.
      This kind of binary thinking is behind much of the world’s problems.
      Did you know Putin is in talks with Turkey, Iran and China to usher in their version of a NWO?
      See https://www.newsweek.com/russia-putin-moscow-west-economics-world-order-1726686 (Newsweek is accused of leaning to the left and to the right, so who knows how trustworthy their information is.)
      Iran’s amassed uranium is close to 90% useable for nuclear arms – see Reuters. And as of four hours ago, Iran may prevent access to its internet for ‘security reasons’. No doubt because of riots due to the death in police custody of a young woman punished excessively for not wearing her hijab correctly.
      Even if some of the West’s leaders are becoming more stupidly socialist, WEF influenced and dictatorial by the day, as a woman, there’s no way I’d ever want Putin, Erdogon, Xi Jinping or Ayatollah Ali Khamenei ruling over me.
      You need to do more research before saying, “Pray for a Russian victory, it will help all of us overthrow the evil dictators … ”
      You’re merely throwing one lot out of your back door while ushering another lot in through your front door.
