Reports coming out of Russia say mobilisation teams are trawling the country to randomly select men of the right age who they force into signing on for the war effort at enlistment centres.
This comes amid a new claim Putin is misleading Russians by announcing 220,000 have been conscripted with another 80,000 “reservists” to be mobilised in the next fortnight.
"Putin lied about the completion of the ‘partial’ mobilisation within the next two weeks,” said General SVR Telegram channel today.
He similarly misled that the total would be 300,000.
The channel claimed that 400,000 have been drafted already by the Defence Ministry’s figures, with half a million expected in by November 1.

The same source claims that total army losses reported to Putin now stand at 66,126, with another 20,415 killed in private military companies like Wagner which are supporting Putin.
