Alternative civil service in the conditions of mobilization is not provided. Such an explanation was published on the official portal for informing citizens "Explain.rf", where the Russian authorities explain the conditions for mobilization.
"Not. Alternative service during mobilization is not provided, ”the message on the website says. Such an answer was given to the question "Is there an alternative civilian service (ACS) during the call for mobilization?".
The concept of "Alternative service in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation" is defined by the Constitution of the Russian Federation in Article 59, part 3. It says that this is "a special type of labor activity in the interests of society and the state, carried out by citizens in return for conscription military service."
According to the country's fundamental law, a citizen of the Russian Federation, if military service is contrary to his beliefs or religion, has the right to replace it with alternative civilian service.
On September 25, it became known that Russians of mobilization age would be restricted from leaving the country after the end of the “referendums” in the occupied territories of Ukraine. Similarities of "exit visas" will be introduced, for which it will be necessary to obtain a certificate from the military registration and enlistment office.
Recall that on September 21, Vladimir Putin announced a "partial" mobilization. According to Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, "about 300,000 reservists" will be mobilized. However, the agendas are handed out indiscriminately. In particular, they are handed out in police stations after arrests at anti-mobilization protests that are taking place throughout Russia.
