“There are many volunteers.” Reportage of a temporary mobilization point in Moscow

But  the excitement is not observed there. According to their said, there were already quite a few volunteers in the first half of the day. In  the final waiting room, we sit down to a young guy with a neatly trimmed beard, he waits to be sent not alone. The girls at the counter explain that they feed everyone: both the mobilized and the military registration and enlistment office staff. Plot Partial mobilization in Russia

The Museum of Moscow was crowded last Monday: from the morning of September 26 there was a temporary mobilization point for three military enlistment offices — Krasnoselsky, Tverskoy and Zamoskvoretsky. And now the family is waiting for the officers to announce the loading. He explains that when all the documents were completed, he asked to let her go to him. Everything is harsh at the entrance: only those who came according to the agenda are allowed inside through the metal detector. Such people simply ask for a delay until the closing of the bulletin in the polyclinic. The armchairs are free: there are about two dozen waiting men with backpacks and sports bags. There are no gourmet dishes, but and not fast food. In the room next  — social workers. The girl, pouring drinks from thermoses and distributing pies, says that all this was provided by a cafe that constantly works in the museum building. Colonel running past — a 50 years old man with a thick cap of gray hair — confirms: “Volunteers?! And there are also those who need the help of a psychologist. Yes, there a lot of them!"
— Krasnoselsky who else?! Someone is talking with neighbors, someone is looking at the screen of a smartphone, someone is watching the complex relationship between Vera and Plato. Information about  children (elderly relatives requiring care) or other good reasons is specified instantly: within 20 minutes, an answer is ready. The employees of the mobile point reacted with understanding. As one of the mobilized people explained, he has no health problems, he is ready to serve. Relatives and friends can wait in the patio. The impressive hall for paperwork has no windows. The tables are filled with computers, piled with papers. But behind   — service in the army. The officer assigns the order, invites the first to pass. According to the head of the social service, approximately 5% of everyone who arrives on mobilization passes through them. Inside — several rows of metal chairs — such as in any of waiting rooms, in front of them — TV on tripod. Work is in full swing. Why does it need additional checks? Slightly to the side — entrance to buffet. It's time to go, picking up backpacks, the men set off for the exit. Three rows of tables set with the letter "P", on each straight —  a dozen jobs: officers in camouflage, female assistants — on the one hand, mobilized — with another.

However, social workers act only in the role of experts, the final decision is made by the military commissar. And mobilization continues. On the screen is the film "Station for Two". Several people raise their hands. …The blue bus has already warmed up the engine. So he can cannot afford to ignore the call. Another mobilized, receiving a glass of hot black coffee, says that he has a quite successful life. Sometimes a person receives a summons while on sick leave. If the person who arrived on the summons has reasons for delay, then they are sent here. — a low but distinct voice comes from the waiting room.
