Just a day ago, a copy of Vladimir Putin’s decree on the introduction of “partial mobilization” in Russia was published on the website of the legal information portal. The seventh paragraph of the decree, however, is marked “for official use”. Later, answering questions from journalists, the press secretary of the president, Dmitry Peskov, said that the classified article refers to the number of reservists who could be called up for military service.

“The only thing I can say is that Serghei Shoigu said it was 300,000 people,” Peskov said on Wednesday.

However, the source cited from the presidential administration states that at the beginning the issue of introducing the entire text of the decree under the heading “for official use” was discussed, this being supported by the representatives of the Ministry of Defense. Later, according to the source, it was decided to hide under this title only for point seven, where the number of those who should be mobilized is listed.

To confirm this information, Novaya Gazeta also tried to contact the executive authorities, which, as a rule, receive the full texts of presidential decrees, including classified ones. According to sources from several ministries, they have not received the full text of the decree and there is no way to view it through MEDO (the interdepartmental document management system).

“From my access to MEDO, I see the same text as everyone else: the seventh paragraph is hidden,” said the director of a ministry.

Since the mobilization was announced, military commissars in at least four Russian regions have signed orders banning conscript citizens from leaving their cities.

At least 1,386 people have already been detained in anti-mobilization protests that took place a day ago across the country.
