“While we don’t have teams through the Ministry of Defense, ... conscription is not being carried out at the moment,” Klychkov said during a live broadcast on Vkontakte.

According to him, the task of mobilizing a specific number of people in the region has been completed.

The region will await further orders from the Ministry of Defense.

Earlier, the governor of the Pskov region, Mikhail Vedernikov, said that there were queues of people leaving Russia at the border, among whom there are many citizens of Ukraine and there are Russians of military age.
