1 Russia The Russian Minister of Defense, Army General Sergei Shoigu, instructed to proceed with the execution of Vladimir Putin’s decree on the partial mobilization in Russia. "The directive was signed. The tasks for all subjects were determined. The instructions of the General Staff on the procedure for carrying out the mobilization measures were given. I order to proceed with the execution" - Sergei Shoigu stated on 21st of September, during a meeting of the collegium of the Ministry of Defense. On 21st of September, Vladimir Putin signed a decree on a partial mobilization. In his address to the Russians, he noted that the contact line in the special military operation zone exceeds a 1000 of kilometers. The pro-Russian forces oppose not only neo-Nazi groups, but the entire military machine of the collective West, which threatens the very existence of Russia. Mobilization will affect the persons who have already served in the armed forces. Firstly those who have some combat experience and a military specialty. Students and conscripts won’t be affected. Partial mobilization will take 300,000 reservists, or about 1% of the mobilization resource, which includes those men who have served, and have a military specialty. Sergei Shoigu stated that there are almost 25 millions of such people in Russia. Russia plans to mobilize about the same number of citizens as, according to Sergei Shoigu, Ukraine has already drafted into their forces. 2 Russia The Russian parliament made an appeal to the UN General Assembly and the European Parliament about the threat to peace and stability in Europe, which comes from Ukraine. "The irresponsible actions of the Kiev regime leave no other options to the population of a number of regions of Ukraine other than turning to Russia with a request for a protection and aid. The Russian Parliament appeals to the UN General Assembly, as well as to all sensible politicians and deputies of the countries of the world, with a call to carefully examine and strongly condemn the dangerous actions of the USA and the NATO, which push Kiev to a large-scale military confrontation" - the head of the Russian Parliament’s Committee on the International Affairs, Leonid Slutsky, read the appeal during a meeting of the chamber. The appeal noted that such confrontation could lead to the death of thousands of civilians, and it puts the peace and security of the European people in danger. 3 Europe On 21st of September, the 77th session of the UN General Assembly has began in the city of New York.
