Those who have received a summons to the military (including state service) will be prohibited from leaving Russia until they report to the military registration and enlistment office

The amendments submitted for consideration by the State Duma provide that from the moment of receipt of the summons and until the appearance at the military registration and enlistment office, “citizens subject to conscription for military service” to leave the Russian Federation.

The same package of amendments, which the State Duma will consider on April 11, legitimizes the distribution of subpoenas in electronic form – to a personal account on state services. The amendments also provide for a ban on driving vehicles, selling and buying real estate, obtaining loans for those who have not reported to the military registration and enlistment office 20 calendar days after the date listed on the agenda.

In addition, the amendments provide for the creation of a unified register of persons liable for military service.

Andrey Kartapolov, head of the State Duma Defense Committee, commenting on the amendments, said, that the electronic summons “is considered received from the moment it is posted in the personal account of the person liable for military service” on the “Gosuslugi”. The innovations, he said, will not apply to the spring draft, which continues until July 15.

At the same time, according to him, the amendments to the summons apply to all persons liable for military service, and not only to conscripts.

Amendments to the agendas and the Unified Register of Persons Subject to Military Service were submitted to the third reading of draft law No. 361804-7 “On amendments to certain legislative acts of the Russian Federation (on the issue of notification to citizens of their appearance at events related to conscription for military service)”, which has been under consideration by the State Duma since January 2018. In February 2022, the bill was adopted in the second reading and, in March of the same year, its further examination was postponed until April, but did not return to it until a year later.
