Israeli occupation calls on dual citizens to leave Russia immediately
Israeli occupation is concerned that its soldiers who hold Russian citizenship will be recruited in Russia, as President Vladimir Putin's decision on the partial mobilization came into effect.
Israeli media said that "the Israeli army called on its soldiers and officers, who hold Russian citizenship and are in Russia, to immediately leave and return to 'Israel.'"
"The Israeli army fears that its soldiers and officers, who hold Russian citizenship, will be recruited in Russia, in implementation of the partial mobilization decision."
Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on September 21 a partial mobilization in Russia, stressing that this decision aims to protect Russia, its sovereignty, and its safety.
Following the President's announcement, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu stated that 300,000 reservists will be called to serve in the Ukrainian war.
Putin reiterated prior assertions that Western countries were to blame for initiating a proxy war with Russia in his television address, saying the West "wants to destroy our country" and is attempting to "convert Ukraine's people into military fodder."
He said “mobilization events” would begin without providing further details, aside from saying that he had ordered an increase in funding to boost Russia’s weapons production.
Partial mobilization puts Russia on a stronger war footing. However, partial mobilization may require Russian companies and citizens to contribute more to the war effort.
