“I admit my mistake, I will correct it”… Putin, who ordered mobilization, why did he say this?

Reuters reported on the 29th that Russian President Vladimir Putin acknowledged an incorrect conscription in the partial mobilization order for reserve forces issued on the 21st (local time) and said he would correct it.

According to Reuters, Putin told a meeting of the Russian National Security Council on the same day that “mistakes made in the implementation of the partial mobilization order must be corrected and must be prevented from happening again.”

Putin also said that if the investigation found cases of illegal movement, they would be sent home.

“This mobilization order should target reservists with military experience and skills,” Putin said.

Since the publication of the mobilization order, complaints have been constantly raised in Russia about the indiscriminate recruitment of those who cannot or are exempt from military service, such as the elderly, the sick, and the disabled.

Protests took place throughout Russia and spread across the country.

Since the actual mobilization order was issued, 54 government buildings in Russia, including the military conscription center, are known to have been burned.

In addition, a total of 17 cases where protesters targeted and attacked the conscription center were reported.

Independent Russian media Novaya Gazeta quoted an official from the Federal Security Service (FSB) as saying, “261,000 people fled Russia on the 21st and 24th as rumors spread that the authorities would close the border to prevent conscripts from leaving the country. it is assumed that it is.”
