St. Petersburg, October 1 – Novosti. A student from St. Petersburg, who was mistakenly called up as part of a partial mobilization, was returned home, city governor Alexander Beglov said on the VKontakte social network page.

“Her son, a full-time student, was called up for mobilization. He instructed to deal with the situation. They contacted the unit. The parents brought a certificate confirming full-time education to the command.
He urged residents to report all controversial situations on his personal page.
On the eve of the deputy military commissar of St. Petersburg, Ilfat Abzalov, said that eight people called up with violations during partial mobilization are returning home.
Since September 21, partial mobilization has been taking place in Russia. Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that they plan to call up to 300 thousand reservists – as President Vladimir Putin emphasized , these are, first of all, those who have served in the military and have in-demand military specialties and relevant experience.
In addition, the head of state instructed to correct the mistakes made in the first days of partial mobilization and deal with each specific case. He recalled that only Russians with military experience are subject to conscription, and before being sent to the unit, they must undergo additional training. This requirement, as Putin stressed, requires strict implementation.
