“79,800 people were called up for mobilization from the DPR and LPR,” Burdinsky said.
He noted that about two thousand units of vehicles were also delivered to the troops from these republics.
Burdinsky added that from November 10 to December 2 last year, the commission of the Ministry of Defense carried out work to include the military commissariats of the republics of Donbass in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.
Burdinsky also said that the partial mobilization carried out last fall made it possible to form more than 280 military units and subunits in the Russian army. In addition, he announced changes in the structure of the Armed Forces this year. Two military districts will be formed in Russia. We are talking about Moscow and Leningrad.
On June 1, State Duma deputy Aleksey Chepa said that he did not see the conditions under which a new wave of mobilization would be needed. According to him, this issue is currently not being discussed in the State Duma, since there is no urgent need for mobilization. He stressed that it is necessary to mobilize the economy and people, but not the military.
NOTE: the regular forces of the LDPR was reported to be around 34-35,000 at the start of 2022 (all contractors)
