More than 15,000 people have signed up for Russian volunteer units since the beginning of the special operation in Ukraine. On Tuesday, November 1, Alexander Tulyaganov, head of the 2nd department of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Armed Forces, told about this.
He made a corresponding statement in the Federation Council during the discussion of the law on awarding the status of combat veteran to volunteers participating in the NWO, reports RIA News.
Tulyaganov clarified that we are talking about both volunteers who went to the front in the course of partial mobilization, and those who themselves applied to the military registration and enlistment offices and joined volunteer detachments.
Earlier, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported that all activities to call up Russians to serve in the Armed Forces as part of partial mobilization were stopped. Summons to citizens no more will be given. The military registration and enlistment offices will continue to recruit Russians only by accepting volunteers, as well as candidates for contract service.
