Russia-Ukraine War: Vladimir Putin on Wednesday ordered the country’s first mobilisation since World War Two amid Ukraine war which began nearly seven months ago in February.
On social media, there have been reports of numerous students being escorted to enlistment offices as part of the partial mobilisation of the Russian military in response to Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine. In response to the Ukraine War, which started in February and has lasted almost seven months, Vladimir Putin ordered the nation’s first mobilisation since World War Two on Wednesday. According to sources, Russia, which has struggled on the battlefield, has started gathering personnel to be drafted for the conflict in Ukraine.
Approximately 300,000 reservists, who will range in age from 18 to 60, will be called to active duty during the mobilization.
Russians are in a panic following the revelation because one-way flights out of the country have reportedly been selling out quickly since Wednesday, with some apparently filled for the upcoming days. Following Putin’s statement, protests also erupted in Russian cities, leading to the detention of more than 1,300 people. According to Reuters, the protest inmates had been told to go to the enlistment offices.
