Putin signs Russian law establishing electronic draft call-up

A website outlining legislative procedures said Putin signed the law, endorsed this week by the State Duma lower house of parliament.

Russia says it mobilized just over 300,000 men last year to help bolster its "special military operation" in Ukraine.
