WAR IN UKRAINE THE RUSSIAN PARLIAMENT AUTHORIZES THE MOBILIZATION OF EX-CONVICTS CONVICTED OF SERIOUS CRIMES

The Russian Parliament announced this Thursday, October 27 a new law allowing the mobilization of former detainees convicted of serious crimes. They can now be sent to fight in Ukraine.

A scary law. Russian deputies approved this Thursday, October 27 a new law so that detainees convicted of serious crimes can be mobilized in the army. They can then be sent to Ukraine to fight.

Prisoners released from prison less than eight or ten years ago for “serious and particularly serious” crimes respectively are concerned. This a first in Russia, since until now President Vladimir Putin prohibited this type of mobilization.

ALWAYS MORE MOBILIZED

Thus, only those who have been convicted of pedophilia, hostage-taking or an attack, trafficking in radioactive materials, espionage, or high treason cannot be mobilized, according to the amendments voted by the Duma, the lower house of the Russian Parliament.

The deputies also voted on Thursday on a law regulating the status of volunteers supposed to “assist the armed forces” during armed conflicts or anti-terrorist operations, in the country and outside its borders.

According to this law, they will notably have “the same status as contract soldiers”. “It’s fair: they are defending our country,” Duma Speaker Viatcheslav Volodin said in a statement.

The mobilization was decreed in Russia to recruit more than 230,000 people, according to the country’s authorities, in the context of Moscow’s weakness in the face of Ukrainian forces.
