About 20 residents of the occupied Crimea will go to serve in military units located in Russia during the spring draft campaign. This was reported by the "military commissar of the Crimea" Anatoliy Maloletko, writes TASS.
Occupation authorities intend to call in 2,4 thousand residents of the annexed peninsula for military service in spring and about the same number in autumn.
“Not more than 20 people go to the mainland, the rest will serve here (on the peninsula),” according to Andrey Kolesov, the head of the organization and mobilization department of the headquarters of the Southern Military District.
Earlier it was reported that Ukraine demanded to stop recruiting Crimean residents to Russian Army. Military conscription to Russian Armed Forces on the occupied peninsula started on April 1.
