Thousands of people join the army in Russia seeking vengeance for Moscow terrorist attack

Russia’s Military Recruitment Surges as Citizens Seek Justice for Terrorism Victims

Russia has experienced a significant increase in the number of citizens signing up for military service as professional soldiers. Since the beginning of the year, over 100,000 people have signed contracts, with 16,000 joining in the past 10 days alone. Many of these individuals expressed their desire to avenge the victims of terrorism, particularly in response to the tragic event in Moscow on March 22.

The Russian Ministry of Defense stated that many candidates were motivated to sign contracts by a desire for justice for the victims of the Moscow tragedy. Current laws prevent conscripts from being mobilized for combat missions outside the country, so professional soldiers serving on long-term contracts are being relied upon. These soldiers receive intensive training and are equipped with modern weapons and technology.

In an effort to bolster its military capabilities, Russia has announced plans to establish two additional combined military groups and 30 new units this year. The army has also expanded its existing divisions and brigades. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu made these plans public with the aim of strengthening the country’s defense forces.

Tensions have been heightened following a tragic incident at Crocus City Hall theater in Moscow which resulted in many deaths. Russian officials have accused Western and Ukrainian intelligence of supporting attackers but specific evidence linking these claims has not been made public yet. IS-K has claimed responsibility for this attack while Ukraine denies involvement.

In response to these evolving security challenges, Russia is encouraging more citizens to join its armed forces as professional soldiers. Posters and advertisements promoting military service are widespread across Russian cities and it’s clear that strengthening defense capabilities is a priority for this nation now more than ever before
