Global News published this video item, entitled “Russian conscripts not being sent to Ukraine, military says as businesses urged to help war efforts” – below is their description.

Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu told military officials on Tuesday that the government is not sending conscripts to fight in Ukraine.

His comments came after Russia prosecuted a dozen army officers in June after news broke that hundreds of conscripts had seen action in Ukraine.

Russia conscripts around 400,000 young men annually for compulsory military service, but President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly said draftees would not be deployed to Ukraine.

Separately, the Russian government is taking steps to urge businesses to supply the Russian war effort.

The Russian parliament passed two bills in an initial vote on Tuesday, July 5. The two bills still need to undergo second and third readings, be reviewed by the upper house of parliament and then signed by Putin.

If approved, the second bill would allow the government to compel employees at businesses supplying the war effort to work nights, holidays and weekends, and without annual leave.

In This Story: Vote

Voting is a method for a group, such as a meeting or an electorate, in order to make a collective decision or express an opinion usually following discussions, debates or election campaigns. Democracies elect holders of high office by voting. Residents of a place represented by an elected official are called “constituents”, and those constituents who cast a ballot for their chosen candidate are called “voters”. There are different systems for collecting votes, but while many of the systems used in decision-making can also be used as electoral systems, any which cater for proportional representation can only be used in elections.

In smaller organizations, voting can occur in different ways. Formally via ballot to elect others for example within a workplace, to elect members of political associations or to choose roles for others. Informally voting could occur as a spoken agreement or as a verbal gesture like a raised hand or electronically.
