The Russian army claims it is not planning a second wave of mobilization and that it has enough troops


The Russian armed forces are not planning a second wave of mobilization, and the call for mandatory military service is part of a routine recruitment program, officials announced today.

"I would like to emphasize that the plans of the General Staff do not include a second wave of mobilization," said Vladimir Tsimlyansky, a representative of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces.

He added that the Ministry of Defense has enough troops to meet its goals and that the recruits will serve military service only at permanent posts in Russia.

The Russian Ministry of Defense traditionally calls up men for compulsory military service twice a year, in spring and autumn. Mobilization is a distinct process in which reserve forces and other military personnel are called upon in the event of an emergency or war.

As a reminder, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree yesterday calling for mandatory military service, during the spring military service, for 147.000 citizens aged 18 to 27.
