Non-serving Russians over 30 years old will be sent to military training after the adoption of a law on changing the maximum draft age. This writes URA.RU with reference to a member of the State Duma Defense Committee Viktor Sobolev.
“Those who are over 30 years old will be recruited to receive a military specialty and not be cannon fodder. For this, a lot needs to be done, including we must have a trained mobilization reserve, ”Sobolev said in a conversation with reporters. Those who are in the reserve or reserve, but do not have any military specialty, will also have to go to the training camp.
Updated : Statements about sending non-serving Russians over 30 years old to military training are not connected with reality, the head of the State Duma Defense Committee, Colonel General Andrei Kartapolov, told RBC.
“ These are the dreams of Viktor Ivanovich Sobolev, not connected with reality in any way,” said Kartapolov.
Earlier, Kartapolov said that during the spring conscription, they plan to call up men aged 18 to 30 years. He also said that the lower limit of the draft age will be raised to 21 years. Now men aged 18 to 27 are called up for military service.
