Meanwhile, on September 21, press secretary of the Russian president Dmitry Peskov answered questions from the press about partial mobilization in the Russian Federation. In particular, according to him, the Cabinet of Ministers will determine the categories of citizens who will be able to exercise the right to deferment as soon as possible.
Along with this, Peskov urged media representatives to wait until the Kremlin clarifies the issue of closing the borders for mobilized Russian citizens. Vladimir Putin's spokesman also explained that the presidential decree did not define the timing of the partial mobilization.
