A full-fledged mobilisation campaign is underway in Russia. About 20,000 people are involved in it every month, while the children of officials and oligarchs are not affected by it.

Quote from Yusov: "The (mobilisation) measures continue every day and every month, and about 20,000 people are mobilised every month."

Details: Yusov recalled that recently Sergei Sobyanin, Mayor of Moscow, announced about 45,000 Moscow residents at the front, although before that, the figure of 35,000 was announced. "This means that the mayor admitted that only 10,000 Muscovites have been mobilised in the past few months. In different ways, with different methods, but this campaign continues," Yusov emphasised.

The representative of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine indicated that it is a forced mobilisation, while it does not affect the children of officials and oligarchs. Those who have recently received a Russian passport are mainly being mobilised.

"This is an indicator of the criteria for obtaining a Russian passport, which creates a potential threat. There is a high probability that a person will be captured and sent to war," Yusov said.
