The militants planned to be included in the mobilization reserve of foreigners temporarily residing in the occupied territories of Donetsk and Lugansk regions. This was at the briefing said Colonel Dmitry Gutsulyak from the press center of the Ministry of defense of Ukraine.
He said that according to the Main intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of defense of Ukraine, the Russian occupational command has stepped up preparations for another large-scale conscription of the local population to undergo “military service” consisting of units 1 and 2 Army corps of the armed forces.
“In particular, Russian occupation administrations changes in the so-called “law” against conscription and the military service. This reduces the requirements to the candidates regarding their state of health and psychological characteristics. So, in the mobilization reserve is supposed to include persons who previously were not drafted at all, including foreigners, who are temporarily in the occupied territories of Donetsk and Lugansk regions”, – said Gutsulyak.
