Draft papers will be given to all eligible Russian men seeking to leave Russia through the Georgian border crossing at Verkhnii Lars, according to Russian state news agency RIA Novosti.
Quoting the press office of the regional government of North Ossetia, where the crossing is located, RIA said that "at the entrances to the republic and at the Verkhnii Lars checkpoint, mobile operational groups are organized, consisting of representatives of military registration and enlistment offices and executive authorities."
Earlier on Tuesday, RIA reported that only residents of North Ossetia would receive draft letters at the checkpoint. Now the order appears to apply to all males eligible to be called up under the partial mobilization announced last week.
"The task of the operational groups is to hand draft letters to citizens subject to conscription in accordance with the lists of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation."
The head of government in North Ossetia, Sergei Menyailo, also said that the order applied to citizens who are registered with the military — not only in North Ossetia but in other regions of the country.
The Georgian government says the number of Russians crossing into its territory has almost doubled since the announcement of the mobilization, and there are long lines of traffic at the crossing.
