He said this on the air of the All-Ukrainian Information Telethon.play video
“Currently, changes in the legislation on conscription in the Russian Federation are being considered. First, changes are being considered regarding the possibility of conscription not only 2 times a year, but at any time when it is needed, and, secondly, to increase the responsibility for evading military service… People are trying en masse to avoid going to war in Ukraine,” Budanov said.
He also noted that now Russia is carrying out covert mobilization and it goes in two ways.
“The first is the actual mobilization, and the second is the use of reservists. They call it “bars”, that is, the “combat army reserve of the country”, that is, they are essentially reservists who are recruited for short-term contracts to carry out military operations. These facts are absolutely confirmed, we have prisoners who were brought in under this system,” Budanov said.
Also, the head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense noted that now in Russia there is a significant shortage of military equipment and they will “reactivate” the equipment from the reservation bases.
“This equipment has been standing there since the 60s, 70s, 80s … it can only conditionally be called military equipment,” Budanov said.
