Ukraine urges avoiding mobilization into Russian army in occupied territories at all costs
Ukraine's Defence Intelligence (DIU) is advising individuals to avoid mobilization in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine through all available means. If there is an opportunity to purchase a medical certificate or avoid obtaining a passport, it is recommended to do so
This was reported by the representative of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine Andriy Yusov on Espreso TV.
Mobilization activities continue both on Russian territory and on the Ukrainian temporarily occupied territories.
"Illegal mobilization activities are part of Russia's genocidal policy against the citizens of Ukraine, our country and Crimean Tatars. Crimea in this situation is a separate story because it is really a "concentration camp" where Russian special services work extremely hard," said Andriy Yusov.
According to him, it is necessary to avoid mobilization by all means. Literally, all methods are good here. In this situation, if it is possible to buy a medical certificate and avoid getting a passport, it should be done.
"When we talk about young people, it is better to leave the territory. If you are unable to do so, then immediately get in touch with Ukraine, with government projects, such as "I Want to Live," and signal that you are forcibly mobilized, do not support aggression, and are not war criminals. It is necessary to establish a connection to the future transition to the side of Ukraine. There are already such examples, including with Crimeans," said the representative of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine.
The number of daily calls to the hotline of the "I Want to Live" project has increased significantly recently.
"Before the results of the Synytsia (Titmouse) helicopter operation were made public there were 70-100 calls per day, after the briefing and the pilot's public appearance, the number of such calls increased to 170+ per day, and this is an important indicator," emphasized Yusov.
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.
On September 14, it became known that the Kremlin ordered propaganda not to mention the new mobilization in Russia.
