President of Russia Vladimir Putin today announced a partial military mobilisation of the 2 million-strong military reserves in Russia. "Only citizens who are currently in the reserve and, above all, those who served in the armed forces, have certain military specialities and relevant experience, will be subject to conscription," Putin said in a televised speech, adding that the decree for partial mobilisation was signed.
