The human rights project “Military Ombudsman” has launched a hotline in connection with the adoption by the State Duma of amendments that will not allow Russians to escape being summoned to the army.
All questions can be asked in telegram.
“We have reviewed the bill and are prepared to advise anyone who contacts our hotline,” the message read.
April 11 State Duma in second and third readings accepted a package of amendments, which, among other things, legalize the distribution of subpoenas to the military in electronic form through a personal account on state services.
According to the modifications, the invitations will continue to be distributed in paper form – they will be delivered by hand against signature or sent by registered mail. The summons sent by registered mail will be considered delivered on the day of delivery (delivery) of the letter. The electronic summons will be deemed delivered as soon as it appears in the personal account with the State Services.
After serving the summons, the conscript will be prohibited from leaving the country until he reports to the military registration and enlistment office.
