Possibility of 2nd wave of military mobilization in Russia not discussed: Kremlin

Peskov expressed that Russia wants to achieve its goals under the “special military operation” and that it will achieve them.

He also noted that a change of power in Kyiv is not the goal of the “special military operation,” noting that Moscow calls on other countries to influence Ukraine to stop shelling the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant.

Early Sunday, Moscow and Kyiv accused each other of shelling the facilities in the nuclear plant.

Peskov also announced that President Vladimir Putin is preparing to take part in the Eurasian Economic Union summit in Bishkek on Dec. 9, and that the Russian leader intends to have a separate meeting with Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan on the sidelines of the Collective Security Treaty Organization summit to be held in Yerevan on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Putin said earlier this month that 80,000 mobilized people are currently in the combat zone in Ukraine, with around 50,000 actively taking part in hostilities in the region.

On Sept. 21-Oct. 28, Russia also carried out a partial military mobilization, under which 300,000 recruits were enlisted into the army.
