Russian President Vladimir Putin signed the law on electronic subpoenas for those liable for military service. The corresponding document is published on the official portal of legal information.
On April 11, the State Duma adopted in three readings at once amendments on the creation of a unified register of persons liable for military service, electronic subpoenas and new restrictions for failing to appear at the military registration and enlistment office. On April 12, the law was approved by the Federation Council.
According to the amendments, citizens will not be able to leave Russia from the moment they receive the summons until they appear at the military registration and enlistment office. 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, conclude real estate transactions, etc. In addition, the amendments allow adults to enter into a contract for military service immediately after graduation.
The updated rules for obtaining subpoenas to appear at military registration and enlistment offices will affect not only conscripts, but also all those liable for military service, said Andrey Kartapolov, chairman of the State Duma Committee on Defense. The amendments will not apply to the current spring draft.
