The President of the Russian Federation issued a decree on the draft in 2020 for military training of Russian citizens in reserve. The document will be published in the next issue of “Rossiyskaya Gazeta”.
We’ll immediately clarify that this decree has nothing to do with the events in Syria or elsewhere. Military training of reservists is carried out every year, and the current one will not be an exception. By decision of the president, some reserve officers and officers assigned to military units and institutions in case of war or other emergencies will be temporarily called up to the Armed Forces, parts of the Russian National Guard, state security agencies and the Federal Security Service. The duration of their stay in the military system is agreed with the executive authorities of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation. An exception will be made only for verification fees, whose duration will be determined by the Ministry of Defense.
All issues of the organization and conduct of military training are detailed in a special Regulation. The document says that the call of citizens for military training is carried out by military registration and enlistment offices on the basis of decrees of the President of the Russian Federation. And their duration, place and time are determined by the Ministry of Defense and other law enforcement agencies, where the law provides for military service.
Moreover, the Regulation severely limits the duration of military training – they cannot exceed 2 months .. As for the total time that a person spends at the military training camp for the entire period of his stay, there is also an “upper bar” – not more than one year .
The document defines the gradation of military fees. They are divided into enrollment training courses and verification fees. The first are held in military units, where the storekeepers are temporarily assigned to posts corresponding to their military specialties.
Such fees can also be held in the form of training sessions with full-time reservists. This is necessary to maintain army skills in people who have signed a contract with the Ministry of Defense to remain in a mobilization reserve. In addition, there are enlisted fees related to the training of citizens in military registration specialties and military posts, or in the maintenance of tangible assets.
As for the test camp, the combat and mobilization readiness of military units and military commissariats is assessed there. That is, their ability to perform their functions in a special period – during or in anticipation of a war.
The Regulation on the conduct of military training says that for the period of their holding, the average salary at the main place of work is kept by the storekeepers. In addition, people will receive cash allowances and payments due to contract soldiers. Travel expenses “partisans” paid by the state. And if the place of military training is 3 thousand kilometers or more from the storehouse’s home, then it will be delivered to the place of temporary service by plane.
