In order to replenish their manpower losses, Russian troops are also conducting propaganda and agitation work among young people on top of the mobilization. For example, cadet classes with enhanced military training are being created in schools of Skadovsk district (Kherson oblast). Russian soldiers promise that the alleged benefit for the graduates of these classes will be entering contract military service at sergeant positions.
