russia is mobilizing debtors due to lack of combat reserves

Unable to replenish army combat reserves the russian government is resorting to new forms of covert “mobilization”, mobilizing debtors, primarily those with alimony debts, reports the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.

“Due to the reluctance of reservists to return to the army and mass refusal to sign military contracts, the russian prosecutors office is purposefully looking to enlist people who have problems with the payment of loans, alimony and other debts. Simultaneously the number of people who are in debt is growing due to economic decline triggered by sanctions,” said intelligence. 

russia is offering to waive all credit obligations when a debtor signs a contract with the army. 

“Similar proposals are being extended to people in the Republic of Tatarstan,  Pyatigorsk, Rostov-on-Don and the North Caucasus,” the statement claims. 

Such recruitment is not limited to debtors, people who have problems with the law are being offered similar deals. Criminals will allegedly receive full amnesty in exchange for joining the army and participating in the war in Ukraine.
