An electronic summons to the military registration and enlistment office will be considered received from the moment it is posted in the personal account of a person liable for military service at the State Services. This was stated by the head of the State Duma Defense Committee Andrei Kartapolov on the air of the Russia 24 TV channel. On April 11, the Duma will consider a bill on a unified register of persons liable for military service.
At the same time, according to the deputy, if a person does not go to the State Services on time and does not find out about the agenda during the draft campaign, "nothing bad will happen." However, in the next call-up within two weeks after its start, the citizen will be obliged to appear at the military enlistment office himself. Otherwise, he will be banned from leaving the country, and subsequently “other restrictions may be introduced.”
The rules on electronic subpoenas will affect not only conscripts, but also all those liable for military service. They will not apply to the spring draft, which began on April 1. Kartapolov also said that "all traditional methods of notification" would be preserved, that is, the delivery of subpoenas personally to a person liable for military service or his employer. The electronic agenda will "duplicate" these traditional methods.
Meanwhile, on April 11, it became known that the account deletion function returned to the State Services website, which disappeared at the end of March, when the Ministry of Defense announced plans to send out electronic subpoenas. The Ministry of Digital Development stated that this was due to the "increased hacking of personal accounts."
It is noteworthy that on March 31, Kartapolov stated that they would not send summonses through the State Services, since this is not provided for by law.
