The Russian military is looking to send approximately 10,000 employees of the Russian Railways into the war against Ukraine, the General Staff of the Armed Forces reported in its Facebook update on Sept. 3.

"State-owned companies of the Russian Federation have announced new norms for the selection of ‘volunteers’ for the war,” the message reads.

“As an example, the Russian Railways company received an order to search for up to 10,000 new candidates for a short-term contract among civilian employees.”
