military registration and enlistment offices Russia have already received information that those called up in the fall of 2023 will serve for two years, said the military commissar for Dmitrov, Taldom and Dubna Mikhail Fotin. In an interview with Dmitrovsky TV, he said that those called up in the spring will serve for a year and a half.

Fotin explained the decision by “the entry of our northern neighbors into NATO”. Earlier, the authorities of the states announced the readiness of Sweden and Finland for membership in the North Atlantic Alliance. Against this background, it became necessary to create new connections.

Earlier, analysts at the American Institute for the Study of War (ISW) admitted that the Russian authorities were preparing to announce a new wave of mobilization, but feared public discontent. Experts drew such conclusions from the announcement of the formation of territorial defense detachments on the territory of the Belgorod and Kursk regions.
