Gift bag. What is included in the set for mobilized in Moscow

By Azlyrics

Plot Partial mobilization in Russia correspondents visited a temporary mobilization center deployed in the Museum of Moscow, talked to the military commissar and guys who will soon leave for a military unit.

Military Commissar of the Zamoskvoretsky District of the Central Administrative District Alexey Buyanov:

“These gift sets from the government of Moscow are in clothing warehouses of mobilization points throughout the capital. The kit includes everything you need. Even if the partial mobilization took the guy by surprise, he leaves us fully equipped (the size range is presented in full). In addition, we give everyone dry rations so that the mobilized are fed for the time of the road to the military unit and registration in the unit. I want to emphasize that this is a gift from the government of Moscow, and at the meeting point of personnel in the military unit everyone will receive a basic list of things according to the norms of the Ministry of Defense — from a needle and thread to outerwear».

While the military commissar talks about the city recruitment and emphasizes that the backpack is not standard, but increased, literally a couple of meters from us youth receive the same sets for young people. Clothes and shoes are tried on here. Some people stay in issued suits and give civilian clothes to their relatives, others carefully put things in a new backpack and go again to their relatives.

25- summerAleksey V. shows her mother the duffel bag she just received, she meticulously examines it, but does not look inside. «Normal things — Alex told us. — They definitely won't be superfluous, I speak as a person who has served. Winter camouflage is especially pleasing. You can't have a lot of clothes.

27—year-old Andrei S. shows how berets and summer camouflage suit sit on it. “Such a suit is also called“ figure ”, this is not military equipment, but as as a spare set it will work great. For some reason, my wife insisted that I come to the mobilization point “like a parade”, now I will give her civilian things back, why should carry them back and forth. And dry rations — good bonus. I'm always ready to eat».

The dry ration, which is definitely enough for the road, contains soft buns, Tula gingerbread, sausage, juice, water, a portion of rice porridge with meat, cheese, a chocolate bar, disposable cutlery and a plate. By the way, while young people are at the mobilization point, they can have a free snack in the buffet and in the canteen, where hot meals are organized. The tables are not empty, the young body requires replenishment of energy. It should be noted that all the young people we saw at the point at the Museum of Moscow looked very collected and calm". The most common answer to  — “What was the first thought that came into your head when the summons came?” was like this: “It’s necessary, then it’s necessary.”
