Who is a conscientious objector?
Putin signed the document introduces additional items in several articles of the Federal law “On military duty and military service”, which regulates military records, military service and other aspects of the relationship of citizens with compulsory military service.
The objector in accordance with the current law is any man who has not passed military service or alternative service before attaining 27 years without a legitimate reason.
Legitimate reasons for exemption are considered, in particular, the cases of persons found unfit or partially fit for military service. Also are exempted from the service people with an academic degree and the relatives of soldiers who died in the line of duty.
Who and how will check officials?
The first paragraph of the amendments to the law places the responsibility for inspection officials on the military. In the near future in the state and municipal departments of the military will come to the agenda with the requirement to verify employees, which the military considered evading military service.
Upon receipt of such summons the Minister is now obliged to notify the draft Board of resignation of the employee from office or to give military information about on what basis the employee is not served, including the date and number of meetings of the drafting Commission, which the recruit was released from service.
If such evidence, the Agency is unable to provide official and recognized by the objector at a special meeting of the Commission of the military enlistment office, he loses his job and right to hold public office for the next 10 years.
While officials risk losing their jobs, are allowed to attend meetings of commissions and on the basis of available official documents to prove that the deviators, they are not. Also already recognized by the objector, the official may submit a complaint to the Commission’s decision.
