“As it became known to KrimSOS, men in the temporarily occupied Crimea began to receive subpoenas to the Russian army through the public services website. If a person does not visit their personal account on the public services website for several days, the summons will automatically be considered received,” said Aleksey Tilnenko, head of the organization’s board.
