Andrei Kartapolov, Chairman of the State Duma Defense Committee, spoke about a new initiative that will be considered immediately after the holidays. We are talking about an amendment to Article 328 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. Legislators propose to toughen the responsibility for evading mobilization.
According to the draft, Article 328 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation will be supplemented by part 3, which provides for a fine of up to 500 thousand rubles or imprisonment for up to five years for evading mobilization. At the moment, this article provides for liability for evading military service in the form of a fine of up to 200 thousand rubles or imprisonment for up to 2 years.
In addition, Andrei Kartapolov commented to Parliamentary Newspaper on cases of conscription of citizens who have reservations from mobilization.
Reservation is a temporary state of a citizen. It can be removed, for example, in connection with a transfer to another position that is not critical for the sustainable operation of the enterprise. Secondly, the reservation itself is not an indispensable ground for deferral or exemption from service […] In other words, everything that people accept, people can cancel. And there's nothing wrong with that
- quotes Parliamentary Newspaper Andrey Kartapolov.
Recall that before going on vacation, the State Duma adopted legislation on raising the draft age and on increasing fines for non-appearance at the military registration and enlistment office on the agenda.
