According to Deputy Head of the National Security Council Dmitry Medvedev, over 231,000 Russians have signed enlistment contracts with the military this year. Speaking at a council meeting in Moscow, Medvedev highlighted that the success of the contract enlistment system and a range of government measures have contributed to the high regard for contract service.

Medvedev explained that the adaptation of the contract enlistment system to the conditions of the special military operation has yielded positive results. Additionally, various measures have been implemented to support both soldiers and their families. Enlisted individuals receive a one-time bonus, a credit holiday, and a guarantee of their old jobs once their service is completed. However, there is still room for improvement in monitoring the implementation of these benefits.

Furthermore, discrepancies in compensation between contract soldiers and reservists who have been called up have been eliminated. In addition to this, each region of Russia has established its own program of incentives and bonuses to further encourage contract enlistment.

In late June, Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu reported to President Vladimir Putin that the enlistment rate was high enough to raise an entire regiment per day. The number of contracts signed at that time stood at 150,000.

It is worth noting that Moscow had called up approximately 300,000 reservists in September 2022. Despite this, Putin has repeatedly stated this year that there is no need for another mobilization at the moment. During a meeting with military correspondents in mid-June, the Russian president jokingly mentioned that a call up would only be necessary if Moscow decided to “march on Kiev.”

Meanwhile, Ukraine has issued blanket mobilization orders in several regions. Recently, their national police and security service conducted raids on over 100 recruitment stations and medical commissions in 12 jurisdictions. These actions were in response to the alleged existence of a fraud scheme involving the sale of medical exemptions from the draft for $6,000 each.

The current enlistment numbers in Russia highlight the significance of contract service and the measures put in place to support and incentivize those who choose to serve. With the adaptability of the contract enlistment system and the elimination of discrepancies in compensation, the Russian military continues to attract individuals who are willing to serve their country. However, the situation remains dynamic, and it will be important to monitor the ongoing developments in both Russia and Ukraine as tensions persist in the region.
