summonses have begun to reach residents of 40 regions

Summonses have begun to arrive to residents of 40 regions. On this subject informed Pavel Chikov, head of human rights group Agora*, on his Telegram channel.

He attached to his message a list of regions which he says will be completed. Chikov did not name the source of the data.

Russian military registration and enlistment offices began sending mass subpoenas on March 13. In some summonses, according to the people who received them, it is said not only about the appearance at the office of registration and military enlistment, but also about military training. The Russian President’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov called the issuing of subpoenas “standard practice”. According to him, we are talking about clarifying and updating the data. He also added that the second wave of mobilization in the Kremlin is not mentioned.

In the regional military registration and enlistment offices, the distribution of summonses was explained by “the updating of military registration data”. Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Defense Committee Yuri Shvytkin in a conversation with RTVI explained that the agenda is the basis for verifying citizens’ data. “But that does not mean that he will be immediately called up as a person mobilized for a special operation,” noted the deputy.

Chikov writingthat a citizen can be summoned to the military registration and enlistment office if he does not report a change in his data, for example a move or a change in marital status. Also, they can be summoned to the military registration and enlistment office to clarify the data during the selection period for military training, but they are detained only on the basis of a presidential decree. Such a decree has not been issued, so it is illegal to call on them from the reserve, the human rights activist noted. Chikov also stressed that “this is not the second wave of mobilization”.

* in 2014, a human rights organization called “Agora” was entered into the register of NPOs-foreign agents, and in 2016 it was liquidated by a court decision. Currently, Agora International Human Rights Group operates without constituting a legal entity
