The Russian leader also said that a decree has already been signed to make the measure official.

“I repeat, we are only talking about partial mobilization. That is, only those citizens who are in the reserve and, above all, those who have served in the Armed Forces, have certain military specialties and relevant experience, will be subject to recruitment,” Putin explained.
