Russians who have reached draft age will have to independently come to the military registration and enlistment office for military registration, otherwise they may face a fine. It is proposed to register such norms in the bill, which is now being prepared for the second reading in the State Duma, Rossiyskaya Gazeta writes on Wednesday, April 28.
Corresponding amendments are proposed to be introduced into the Administrative Code. It is noted that the innovation may affect not only conscripts, but also those who are in reserve. Violators face a fine of 500 to 3 thousand rubles.
“The reason for bringing a citizen to administrative responsibility may be the very fact of failure to appear at events related to registration and conscription,” said Vladimir Gruzdev, chairman of the board of the Russian Lawyers’ Association.
In addition, failure to report a change in the data of marital status, education, place of work or position, as well as moving to a new place, may become a reason for initiating an administrative offense case.
In case of evasion from military service without good reason, young people under 27 years old will receive documents confirming this fact, which may interfere with career advancement.
Earlier, on April 26, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree calling for military training of Russian citizens who are in reserve. Military gatherings for storerooms are held annually in the country. Their goal is to improve the professional skills and knowledge of military personnel.
At the end of March, the Russian leader signed a decree on the spring conscription for military service from April 1 to July 15 this year. It was reported that 134,650 people are subject to the spring conscription.
