Vladimir Putin has drafted a further 130,000 conscripts to the war in Ukraine as the conflict is now in its 20th month.
The new conscripts which consist of teenagers and those aged up to 27-years old have been told they will not be sent to Ukraine, but these false promises have been said in the past.
It is understood that Rear-Admiral Vladimir Tsimlyansky told the new conscripts they would not be sent to the war in Ukraine.
He said, “Fresh military conscripts will not be deployed to the Luhansk and Donetsk people’s republics, Kherson region or Zaporizhzhia region to perform tasks in the special military operation zone.”

He added, “The term of military service under conscription will amount to 12 months, as before.
“I’d like to stress the General Staff has no plans for a further mobilisation.”
Putin said on Saturday that he will seize more Ukrainian territory and that “nothing and no-one” will stop Russia from achieving “victory.”
In an attempt to justify his illegal war, he said, “Nothing and no-one can break the will of millions of people, or their belief in truth and historical justice.
“The free and unequivocal choice of our brothers and sisters was wholeheartedly supported by the Russian people.
“We understood and deeply felt the most important thing: by defending our compatriots in Donbas and Novorossiya, we are defending Russia itself.
“Together, we are fighting for the Motherland, for our sovereignty, spiritual values, unity, and victory.
“I thank all the citizens of the country for this solidarity and patriotism.”
