Kremlin likely to try to use mobilization to eliminate individual political figures – ISW
Partial mobilization in Russia allegedly stops. However, the Kremlin seems to have more plans.
The Institute for the Study of War has suggested that the top Russian leadership aims to remove “undesirables” from the government through mobilization. The idea is to abolish the deferral of parliamentarians.
Send “undesirables” to the front – this is the plan
The fact is that the party ” Fair Russia” submitted an interesting bill to the State Duma. Its representatives proposed to abolish mobilization delays for Russian officials.
In addition, according to this project, the Kremlin will be able to call up security officials. We are talking about law enforcement officers of the Russian Guard, the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB), the military prosecutor's office and the Investigative Committee.
This initiative shows that the leadership views its security service as potential “cannon fodder”. If the bill is supported, the Kremlin will be able to send senators, deputies and security forces to the front.
Stop or go underground: will the mobilization be hidden
Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin recently announced that summonses in the Russian capital are no longer valid. This is because partial mobilization is being stopped in Russia.
Political strategist Mikhail Sheitelman claims that most likely the mobilization was suspended only in Moscow and major cities. According to him, the Kremlin will continue to send residents of Russian villages and “outback areas” to the front.
