A temporary mobilization point on the territory of the Museum of Moscow opened a week ago. Residents of the Central Administrative District come here, consisting of three military commissariats: Tver, Zamoskvoretsky and Krasnoselsky. Some come according to the agenda, others – at the call of the heart. From here, future defenders are sent to a training center.

“No point in hiding”

Most men hold a summons and a passport in their hands, all of them are sent to the waiting room, from where they are called for an interview.

– Most likely, they will not give a delay, I have no arguments, – says Muscovite Daniil.

– Me too. I also served. Let them look at my eyesight, if I’m fit, then I’ll go, – says Anton from Moscow.

If the recipient of the summons has documents confirming the presence of health problems, then they must be taken with you. If necessary, an additional medical examination is carried out on the spot. Examination is carried out by an ophthalmologist, therapist, surgeon. There are cases with method withdrawals, and someone is asked to come for a second commission in a week.

– I don’t want to let him go. The only son. There is no family yet, – says Nikita’s mother. – I actually received the notice. Nikita was with friends at sea, he went for a week. Returned – the agenda. I honestly, as a mother, began to dissuade him. Like, you didn’t get it and don’t go to the military registration and enlistment office. But Nikita said: “I’ll go, there’s no point in hiding.”

Social workers, psychologists, representatives of the prosecutor’s office, bailiffs and bank employees work at the mobilization point. The latter issue cards to which city surcharges will be transferred.

– A native of Egypt came the other day. A tall, strong man, he worked in Russia, and now he decided to go to the Donbass. A decision on it has not yet been made, – they said in the mobilization center.

“Either we, or they us”

A third of the men who come on the agenda are ready on the same day to go to the training base, and from there to the front. To do this, you need to pass an interview, get the conclusion of the commission, get a uniform and dry rations on the road. Buses depart from the mobilization center three times a day.

– And if a person is not ready to leave immediately?

– They can give a day or two to return home, finish their business, say goodbye to loved ones, – they said in the mobilization center.

Before departure, you can have lunch at the buffet, as well as watch Soviet films “Pokrovsky Gates” or “It Can’t Be” in the waiting area.

– I saw the situation and analyzed it. And when the summons came, he did not resist. I served, but I have no combat experience, – says Sergey from Moscow.

– Where did you serve?

– Military unit in Mulino. This is the Nizhny Novgorod region. Motor Rifle Division.

– And how did the relatives react?

– Fine. Motherland said, so it is necessary. Now I see here in some confusion, worries about the fact that they served for a long time. But don’t worry, they’ll teach you everything. The main thing is to be there and fight the enemy. Either we or they us. Never mind, we’ll be back with a win.

38-year-old Muscovite Dmitry came as a volunteer. It so happened that he did not serve in the army, then there was a delay due to studies. And now he decided to help the soldiers at the front.

– And how did the relatives react to this decision?

– They were against it, of course. But I decided to go anyway. Grandfather would approve, he was against the Nazis.

There are quite a lot of volunteers – not everyone has combat experience, someone comes not for the first time – they didn’t take them in February, since only a contract army went to fight, and now they are allowed to help their own. Mobilized people say that there are many stories when they take away their son on the agenda, and the father volunteers when they take away his younger brother and asks him to be the eldest. They want to be a support to each other, to help.

Anatoliy, an employee of psychological assistance to children, was called to serve. He says that he worked for many years with children who were addicted to drugs.

– Of course, I’m more useful here, saving children. But I’m not on standby, there’s no reprieve. Yes, I served, I held a machine gun in my hands. I don’t know if I’ll be useful at the front. There is still study ahead – they will say there. But hide

Enough volunteers

“The wives were asked not to come to the farewell”

Those who are ready to mobilize day after day are sent to change clothes – everyone is given a green uniform, boots, and, if necessary, a roomy backpack.

– Smartphones, like, it is impossible? They said that only with a push-button telephone you can …

– Yes. I have a push button. But right now we are not at the front, the training part is still ahead. So far, they are not forbidden to communicate with relatives, – volunteer Dmitry says.

Some came to see off their wives and mothers. The songs of Viktor Tsoi, Oleg Gazmanov sound. In such an atmosphere, women cannot hold back their tears, crying every ten minutes.

– I’m sorry, I won’t say anything. We have a family, children. We don’t want him to leave, – the wife of one of the conscripts is worried.

The rest were also seen off, but at home. The men asked their women not to go to the mobilization center so that they would not shed tears there before they were sent.

– I am sure that you will drive the Banner of Victory into the lair of the enemy and return home with victory. Good luck, health and victory, – said Nikolai Peshkov, Chairman of the Council of Veterans of the Khamovniki District.
