Many Russian Citizens have been trying to reach the nearest countries like Kazakhstan, Finland, Georgia, and Mongolia. As a result, Russia blocked its roadways and air routes, preventing citizens from moving away. Kazakhstan is the only country allowing Russian Citizens to stay, without a visa, for 90 days.

Since the mobilization is partial, Russia is planning to recruit people who have worked in various posts and jobs in the military. It is also calling back all the retired soldiers and officials who fit in the age category for partial mobilization. Then, all the recruits will be awarded titles according to their eligibility.

Kontraktniki, is the official term for soldiers in Russia. Serving Kontraktniki soldiers in the army cannot quit, and the expired contracts are renewed throughout the war.
