MOSCOW, March 31. /TASS/. The Russian General Staff is not planning to hold the second wave of mobilization, because the current number of volunteers and servicemen is sufficient for fulfilling the tasks of the special operation, said Rear Adm. Vladimir Tsimlyansky, the head of the Russian General Staff’s main organization and mobilization department.
"I would like to assure you that the General Staff’s plans do not include the second wave of mobilization. The current number of conscripts and people who volunteered to participate in the [special] operation is sufficient for fulfilling the objectives," he said during a briefing devoted to Russia’s spring draft.
In his words "the number of citizens who decided to join the Russian armed forces under the enlistment contract has increased significantly as of lately."
This year’s spring draft in Russia will be held during its usual timeframe of April 1 - July 15 for a total of 147,000 Russians aged between 18 and 27.
