Russian President Vladimir Putin revealed on Friday that the number of mobilized people has reached 318,000, adding that more volunteers are expected to join in the coming period.

"We already have 318,000 mobilized. Why 318,000? Because of volunteers. The number of volunteers is not decreasing. Of these, 49,000, in my opinion, are already in the army, performing combat missions. All the rest are still engaged in training," Putin underscored at the organized event before the participants of youth and volunteer organizations on National Unity Day.

Earlier, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced the end of mobilization across the country, as the desired quota of enlistments has been reached.
