After the Russian-led "elections" in the temporarily occupied areas of Zaporizhzhia region, forced passportization of the local population continues, and there are signs that "mobilization" into the Russian army may begin

Alisa Sysoieva, a journalist and member of the Zaporizhzhia District Council, shared the information on Espreso TV.

"Regrettably, the situation remains disheartening. Reports indicate that even after the so-called elections and the ongoing passportization process, there are still no signs of it abating. Promises were made to complete the passportization for everyone in September, and now there are concerns that lists for a concealed mobilization effort are being prepared," the MP noted.

Sysoieva further explained that open mobilization, similar to what occurred in Luhansk or Donetsk, has not taken place yet. However, Zaporizhzhia authorities have received reports of individuals going missing, being captured by Russians, and vanishing into Russian basements. There are instances where these individuals are coerced into fighting for the Russian forces.

"As for all the others, a list is being compiled, so it is possible that mobilization may begin there. They have announced the results of their so-called elections, and now in their propaganda they can explain to the local population that everything is legal, that they will act in accordance with the laws of Russia. This, in turn, serves as a pretext to mobilize individuals and compel them to fight on behalf of the Russian Federation," she emphasized.

The "mobilization" on the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine

The Ukrainian General Staff informs that due to catastrophic losses in the Russian army, massive forced mobilization of the population will begin in the near future in remote regions of the Russian Federation and in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine. Between 400,000 and 700,000 people are planned to be drafted into the armed forces.

Russia continues to conduct hidden mobilization. This year, 90,000 to 100,000 Russians have already been drafted to replenish losses and create new units. However, there may not be a large-scale mobilization.

The American Institute for the Study of War believes that the Kremlin's inner circle is actively discussing the need for and preparations for the second wave of reserve mobilization ahead of the fall conscription. Russian officials want to mobilize between 170,000 and 175,000 reservists, as well as to postpone the date of the autumn draft from October 1 to November 1.

A representative of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine, Andriy Yusov, called for avoiding mobilization in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine on Espreso TV. If there is an opportunity to purchase a medical certificate or avoid obtaining a passport, it is recommended to do so.
