In mid-April, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed law on the creation of a digital registration system for military personnel. According to the changes, information from state information systems and from government bodies is used to maintain the military registration register formed by military registration and enlistment offices. In addition, from the moment they receive the summons until they appear at the military registration and enlistment office, citizens will not be able to leave Russia.
Also, in case of failure to appear, there may be a ban on state registration as an individual entrepreneur, deprivation of the ability to drive a vehicle, enter into real estate transactions, etc. In addition, the amendments allow adults to enter into a contract for military service immediately after graduation.
At the beginning of June, the Russian Ministry of Defense suggested register and remove citizens from military registration without appearing at the military registration and enlistment office. Notifications about this will be sent to your personal account on the portal of state and municipal services, as specified in the document. Attendance will still be mandatory for the medical examination. It is planned to send out summonses through the Unified Register of Military Records or by registered mail.
