Russia vows to correct ‘mistakes’ after calling sick, elderly and students



When Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on Wednesday a partial mobilization of reservists for the conflict in Ukraine, he said that only people with “appropriate” military knowledge or experience would be called up.

But many expressed indignation after cases surfaced, sometimes absurd, about the call-up of people unfit for service.

In the Volgograd region, a training center sent home a 63-year-old retired military man with diabetes and neurological problems.

In the same area, the director of a small rural school, 58-year-old Alexander Faltin, received a summons despite his lack of military experience.

His daughter posted the video on social media, which quickly went viral. After that, he managed to return home, having familiarized himself with the documents, the RIA Novosti agency reports.

Senate Chairwoman Valentina Matviyenko asked this Sunday to pay close attention to mobilization campaigns.

“Mistakes of mobilization (…) cause a strong reaction in society, and rightly so,” he wrote on Telegram.

However, the authorities present the mobilization of the theoretically freed as isolated cases – but even in this case, the consequences must be taken into account.

Valery Fadeev, chairman of the Kremlin’s human rights council, urged Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu to “solve the problems urgently” so as not to “undermine the people’s trust.”

In support of what happened, he cited several cases, such as the recruitment of 70 parents from large families in the eastern region of Buryatia and nurses and midwives without military training.

Fadeev said they were all summoned “under the threat of a criminal court” and also criticized those who “distribute subpoenas at two in the morning, as if they were taking everyone as deserters,” which causes “dissatisfaction,” he warned.

Several students told AFP they received calls despite authorities promising not to include them in the mobilization campaign.

On Saturday, Putin signed a decree confirming that students from vocational and higher educational institutions are exempt from mobilization.

Another situation that has generated controversy is the case of protesters against the offensive in Ukraine who received mobilization orders during their detention. The Kremlin said there was “nothing illegal” in these cases.
