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

Since the beginning of the year, more than 100,000 people have signed military service contracts in Russia. Among them, 16,000 joined the army in the past 10 days. Many of these individuals expressed their desire to avenge the victims of terrorism, particularly in response to a tragic event in Moscow on March 22.

The Russian Ministry of Defense stated that the motivation for many candidates to sign contracts was driven by a desire to seek justice for the victims of the Moscow tragedy. Under current laws in Russia, conscripts cannot be mobilized for combat missions outside the country, so the Russian army is relying on professional soldiers serving on long-term contracts. These soldiers receive intensive training and are equipped with modern weapons and technology.

To further bolster its military capabilities, Russia 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. The Russian Defense Minister, Sergei Shoigu, unveiled these plans with the aim of strengthening the country’s defense forces.

The tragic incident at Crocus City Hall theater in Moscow resulted in loss of many lives and heightened tensions between Russia and other countries. Russian officials have accused Western and Ukrainian intelligence of supporting attackers and made arrests in connection with incident but specific evidence linking these claims have not been made public yet. Self-proclaimed Islamic State’s Afghan branch IS-K claimed responsibility for attack while Ukraine denied involvement.

In response to evolving security challenges, Russia is encouraging more citizens to join armed forces as professional soldiers by promoting it through posters and advertisements across cities wide
