The military commissars of the regions of Russia issued the same orders, which explains the procedure for mobilization . People in the reserve have limited movement around the country.

The authorities will be able to confiscate cars for the needs of the army

The military commissars of different regions of Russia published almost identical orders “On the announcement of mobilization”, which explains the procedure for appearing at collection points. In particular, such orders were issued by the military commissars of Tatarstan , Dagestan , Yakutia , Samara , Sverdlovsk , Smolensk and  Voronezh regions, as well as the Yeysk and Shcherbinsky districts of the Krasnodar Territory.

Pavel Chikov, head of the Agora human rights association, was one of the first to pay attention to the orders. He noted that the orders are “typical” and written “like a blueprint.” Chikov suggested that the wording “was sent down from above”, and similar orders “will appear in every region of the Russian Federation from day to day.”

People in reserve were forbidden to leave their cities

The docs say that everythingofficers, warrant officers, midshipmen, sergeants, foremen, soldiers and sailors of the reserve, who have mobilization orders or who have received summons, must appear at the dates and addresses indicated in them at the collection points.

If a person in the reserve temporarily lives in the territory of the region, then he needs tomove immediately to the place of permanent residenceand come to the points indicated in the mobilization instructions. If this is not possible, then to the military commissariat at the place of military registration.

Those storekeepers who do not have mobilization orders or agendas,travel outside the district or city is temporarily prohibited, where they are.

At the same time, the day before, Andrei Kartapolov, head of the State Duma Committee on Defense , stated that there would be no restrictions on movement in Russia for citizens subject to mobilization (until they received a summons). However, he “advised” citizens not to travel abroad and not even move around the country.

In addition to the storerooms, the orders contain appeals to their employers. They must release the conscripts from work and service, pay them a salary and “ensure their appearance” at collection points.

In addition, some orders contain a clause according to which the heads of organizations, as well as citizens –vehicle owners must deliver serviceable vehicles, road construction, underground transport and other vehicles to the military registration and enlistment officeson the orders of the military commissariats. Pavel Chikov, commenting on this point, noted : “Yes, vehicles will be confiscated. SUVs and trucks.

Those who violate the order are threatened in the document with “responsibility in accordance with the legislation of the Russian Federation.”

Some points of the orders caused a great resonance. They had to be explained and even changed.

Sources of “Business Online” after the publication of the order stated that in Tatarstan the paragraph on the ban on leaving would not affect the vast majority of storekeepers – but only those who received a summons and, most likely, a special order. The publication suggested that the corresponding paragraph of the order appeared because the Ministry of Defense has not yet determined the complete list of those to be mobilized.

Another high-profile point – about vehicles – was commented by a source from the pro-government publication Tatar-inform. According to him, each company that owns transport receives an order from the Russian Defense Ministry, which indicates which vehicles, if necessary, can be withdrawn for the needs of the army. The interlocutor of the agency called fake reports that the residents of the republic will be taken away cars.

Official structures in Tatarstan promised to “give clarifications on mobilization activities and procedures” on September 22, Business Online reported.

As a result, writes the local publication Realnoe Vremya, the order was amended, replacing some of the wording. So, the ban on leaving for the reserve was changed to the instruction “to agree on the procedure for leaving and arriving at the military registration and enlistment office”, and a clarification was added to the paragraph on vehicles that vehicles must be delivered to collection points “by special order”.

In the Smolensk region, the provision of cars was commented as follows: “Currently, the issue of providing cars and other equipment is not worth it.”

Kursk military commissar Vladimir Rodionov also said that residents of the region who are registered with the military commissariat and who are in reserve are forbidden to leave the region without the permission of the military commissariat. The mobilization order in the Kursk region was not promptly found by Meduza.

In Yakutia , they clarified that, first of all, those who served in the army no more than three years ago and those who have military service skills are mobilized in the region. At the same time, the military commissar of Yakutia, Alexander Avdonin, said that those called up as part of the mobilization would receive at least 205 thousand rubles a month.

It was not reported that changes were made to the orders of other regions. However, in the Chelyabinsk region, the order of the military commissar on mobilization (judging by the media publications, also with  resonant wording ) was first hung out on information stands and the doors of military registration and enlistment offices, and then removed .
