Russians subject to conscription will be barred from traveling abroad after the summons is placed in the unified register of served summons.
Exiting the country will be closed exactly from the day the summons appears in the registry of those served. This procedure is provided for by amendments to the second reading of the bill, which allows Russians raising three or more minor children to enter into a contract to remain in the mobilization reserve. One of the authors of these amendments is Andrey Kartapolov, Chairman of the Defense Committee of the State Duma.
The decision to prohibit the conscript from leaving the country will be taken by the military commissariat on the day the summons is sent.
According to the law on electronic summons and the unified register of persons responsible for military service, signed by Russian President Vladimir Putin in April, the summons will be considered delivered from the moment it is posted on the citizen’s personal account on the Gosuslugi portal.
The electronic notifications of citizens subject to compulsory military service will have the same legal force as the traditional summons of the military registration and enlistment offices. Moreover, these rules will affect not only conscripts, but also all Russians forced into military service.
