Member of the State Duma Defense Committee, Lieutenant General Andrey Gurulev, said whether a second wave of mobilization will be carried out in Russia in the next six months.
The deputy said this in an interview on the TV channel "Transbaikalia". According to him, the Russian authorities do not plan to conduct new waves of mobilization in the country. Gurulev explained that now there is already a group that performs combat missions, so there is no need for additional people.
“Today, our military-industrial complex supplies the group that is already performing a combat mission. Therefore, in principle, I do not see in the near future - somewhere for half a year for sure - the possibility of any mobilization, ” the deputy emphasized (quote from URA.RU).
In addition, Gurulev added, the mobilized citizens now need to be provided with military equipment, weapons, clothing, and so on. To achieve these goals, the domestic industry must be ready for this. Also, the deputy concluded, it makes no sense to tear Russian citizens away from their labor duties related to the production of products necessary for Russia.
