Ilya Ponomarev noted that the Russian president lied when he announced partial mobilization.
The secret clause of the decree of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin on mobilization refers to the number. The document states that a million Russians should be called up, and not 300,000, as was announced.
Ilya Ponomarev, a former deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, spoke about this as part of the Argument program on the UNIAN YouTube channel.
According to him, Putin lied when he spoke about partial mobilization, because the wording shows that the mobilization is general.
“As for the classified item, according to my information, it refers to the number of mobilized, namely, the establishment of a figure of one million. As a result, they acted softer and rewrote Putin’s appeal so as not to anger the people,” Ponomarev explained.
At the same time, he pointed out that the document does not contain words about the number of mobilized, so the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Sergei Shoigu, who announced the figure of 300 thousand, will remain extreme.
In addition, the ex-deputy said that even Putin’s inner circle is against the mobilization, so we should expect that it is his close associates who will eliminate the current president of the Russian Federation.
Secret clause in the decree on mobilization in Russia – what is known
On the website of the Kremlin published the decree of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin on mobilization in Russia. It turned out that the seventh paragraph was missing in the document, and on the website, before the official publication of the regulations, next to this paragraph, the mark “for official use.”
On September 21, the press secretary of Russian President Dmitry Peskov said that the seventh paragraph refers to the need to mobilize 300,000 people.
In turn, “Novaya Gazeta. Europe” reported that paragraph 7 refers to the conscription of 1 million citizens of the Russian Federation. In turn, Peskov denied this information to journalists.
