Russian President Vladimir Putin received a report on the implementation of his instructions to categorically exclude the involvement of conscripts to perform tasks on the territory of Ukraine. On his instructions, materials were sent to the Chief Military Prosecutor’s Office for a legal assessment of the actions and punishment of officials responsible for failure to comply with this instruction. This was announced by the Press Secretary of the Head of State Dmitry Peskov.
Prior to the start of the special military operation, on the orders of the President of Russia, Supreme Commander Vladimir Putin, all commanders of the armed forces units were instructed to categorically exclude the involvement of conscripts to perform any tasks on the territory of Ukraine. President Putin was informed about the implementation of this instruction. In connection with the facts of the presence of a number of conscripts in the units of the armed forces participating in a special military operation on the territory of Ukraine, at the direction of the President of Russia, materials were sent to the Chief Military Prosecutor’s Office to verify and legally assess the actions and punish officials responsible for failure to comply with this instructions,” said Peskov.
Earlier, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation recognized the fact that conscripts were on the territory of Ukraine.
Unfortunately, several facts of the presence of conscripts in the units of the Russian Armed Forces participating in a special military operation on the territory of Ukraine were discovered. Almost all such servicemen have already been withdrawn to the territory of Russia. At the same time, a sabotage group of the national battalion attacked one of the units performing the tasks of logistical support. A number of servicemen, including conscripts, were captured. At present, comprehensive measures are being taken to prevent the sending of conscripts to combat areas and the release of captured military personnel , commented the official representative of the Russian Ministry of Defense, Major General Igor Konashenkov.
