Putin: there is no “second wave” of mobilization in the country, but there are thousands of volunteers
Speaking at the site of the eighth Eastern Economic Forum, Russian President Vladimir Putin answered a question about the possibility of a “second wave” of mobilization. He, in particular, said that while forced mobilization is underway in Ukraine, 1000-1500 volunteers sign contracts every day in our country.
We carried out partial mobilization, 300 thousand were called up. Now, over the last 6-7 months, 270 thousand people have voluntarily signed contracts to serve in the armed forces. People come to military registration and enlistment offices and sign contracts. Moreover, this process continues. Every day 1000-1500 people come to sign a contract. Daily! Our men, men, understanding what awaits them, that they can give their lives, still do it consciously and voluntarily. Our soldiers — our heroes — know that they have someone to protect. We protect our people,” Putin noted.
The Russian leader is confident that the interests of the state are at the forefront. He is not ashamed of this. Only future generations will be able to objectively assess what is being done for the country now.
