MOSCOW, 3 October – Novosti. Citizens of the Russian Federation on the Gosuslug portal can sign up as volunteers to participate in a special military operation, a Novosti correspondent reports.
“Citizens who have not received a summons can be voluntarily called up for mobilization or enter the service in a volunteer detachment,” the relevant section of the State Services says.
It is clarified that in order to be drafted for mobilization, the applicant must have citizenship of the Russian Federation , be in the reserve of the Armed Forces, have a military specialty and be suitable for conscription by age (for privates and non-commissioned officers – up to 50 years old, junior officers – up to 60 years old, senior officers – up to age 65).
In addition, only people who are fit for health reasons to serve in mobilization are subject to conscription. Eligible are people with the categories “fit” (A), “fit with minor restrictions” (B) and “limited fit” (C).
By decree of President Vladimir Putin , a partial mobilization has been announced in Russia since September 21. According to 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.
Last Friday, the Ministry of Defense announced that in order to ensure the operation of certain high-tech industries, as well as the financial system of Russia, a decision was made not to involve citizens with higher education in a number of specialties and areas of training in the partial mobilization. In particular, we are talking about delays for IT, communications, media and finance specialists.
