Thousands Enlisted in Russian Army to Seek Revenge for Moscow Terrorist Attack


Apr 3, 2024

In the past 10 days, Russia reported that 16,000 citizens have signed contracts to join the army, with many expressing a desire to avenge victims of terrorism. The Russian Ministry of Defense stated that more than 100,000 people have signed military service contracts since the beginning of the year, indicating a significant increase in the number of individuals joining the armed forces as professional soldiers.

According to the Ministry of Defense, the motivation for many of the candidates signing contracts was the recent tragedy in Moscow on March 22. Russian law currently prohibits mobilizing conscripts for combat missions outside the country, so the Russian army is relying solely on professional soldiers serving on long-term contracts. These professional soldiers receive intensive training and are often part of special units equipped with modern weapons and high technology.

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu has announced plans to establish two combined military groups and 30 new units this year, including divisions and brigades. The tragic event at the Crocus City Hall theater, which resulted in numerous casualties, has prompted a strong response from the Russian government. Officials have accused Western and Ukrainian intelligence of supporting the attackers and have made arrests in connection with the incident.

IS-K, the Afghan branch of the Islamic State, claimed responsibility for the attack, while Ukraine denied any involvement. The Russian government has yet to provide specific evidence to support its claims regarding the involvement of Western and Ukrainian intelligence. The situation remains tense, with the Russian army mobilizing more professional soldiers to address security concerns and potential threats.
