“This is how the center of information and psychological operations of Ukraine works together with the British and Americans. It is they who spread various rumors about partial mobilization, and some in Russia pick them up. Point your finger at exactly where, who was stopped and who was not released where, and it becomes clear that There is no such situation,” he said.

There are people there who immediately after the message come to the military enlistment offices and sign up. There are real examples, today the men came by themselves, already with things, their wives saw them off, everything is very worthy. Many people have no doubts that our country is doing everything right. The President has issued a decree, we must comply with it,” the politician stressed.
