Russian authorities say 300,000 reservists will be called up, but media reports suggest the figure could be much higher.

The Kremlin has admitted mistakes made in its campaign to mobilize Russian reserves to fight in Ukraine, amid growing public opposition.

“There were cases where the decree was violated,” said a spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin, adding that “all mistakes will be corrected.”

According to some reports, men with no military experience – or too old or disabled – were called up.

Last week’s mobilization decision has sparked widespread protests.
