St. Petersburg, October 3 – Novosti. On October 17, the Frunzensky District Court in St. Petersburg will consider the first administrative lawsuit in the city to challenge the draft as part of partial mobilization, the joint press service of the St. Petersburg courts reported .
A lawsuit against the draft commission for partial mobilization and the military commissariat of the Frunzensky district was filed by a local resident Daniil Bakalinsky. According to the lawsuit, on September 22, the day after the announcement of partial mobilization, Bakalinsky arrived at the military registration and enlistment office on the agenda “to clarify military registration documents.” On the same day, he was called up to the RF Armed Forces – he received a summons with a demand to appear at the commissariat “to be sent to the place of military service.” According to the plaintiff, this happened without a medical examination or examination. Also, according to him, no one began to find out the existence of grounds for deferment or exemption from conscription.
Since, according to Bakalinsky, military service is contrary to his “beliefs of conscience,” he applied for its replacement with alternative civilian service. The plaintiff does not agree with the decision of the draft board and asks the court to cancel it. According to the judicial press service, Bakalinsky asked for the application of preliminary protection measures in the form of a suspension of the decision of the draft board.
“The Frunzensky District Court … scheduled a hearing on the claim of Daniil Bakalinsky for October 17, 2022. The application of measures of preliminary protection to the plaintiff was denied, since the decision on mobilization is mandatory, and this measure in the form of suspension of the mobilization of citizens is not provided for by the norms of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation ” , the message says.
A few days after the start of partial mobilization, the government portal “Explain. RF” explained that alternative civilian service is not provided for during the call for mobilization.
In Russia, a partial mobilization has been announced by presidential decree since September 21. According to Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu , it is needed to control the 1,000-kilometer line of contact and the liberated territories in Ukraine . During the mobilization, a total of 300,000 reservists will be called up, which is just over 1% of the total mobilization resource of the Russian Federation.
