Recently, Sitdikov received a call demanding that he undergo a medical examination, after which they began to call him from the military registration and enlistment office.

In April, the Security Service of Ukraine concluded that Russian troops could no longer continue the war without the participation of conscripts.

In March, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu promised not to send soldiers into battle. However, only 180 soldiers of the 6th Combined Arms Army unit were killed during the fighting in Ukraine.
