Since the beginning of 2021, more than 400 residents of the North Caucasus have applied for military service under contract in military units and formations of the Southern Military District (YuVO).

Since the beginning of the year, the selection point for military service under a contract (2 categories) in Vladikavkaz, following the results of a medical examination, professional psychological selection and passing of standards for physical training, about 100 residents were sent to serve under a contract on ships, in coastal units and marine units of the Black Sea fleet and the Caspian flotilla, formations and military units of the Southern Military District.

According to the head of the selection point in Vladikavkaz, Major Pavel Shcheglov, in 2020 five information and agitation campaigns “Military service under contract is your choice!” Were held, meetings were organized and held with graduates of universities and colleges in Kabardino-Balkaria, North Ossetia and Chechnya in which more than 450 people took part. In addition, the selection point specialists conduct remote work using electronic platforms for posting vacancies on the Internet. In 2021, it is planned to jointly work on informing and attracting citizens to contract service together with employment centers in the North Caucasus.

Future servicemen under the contract will receive a decent salary above the average wage in the region. In addition to monetary allowances, a contract soldier and his family enjoy benefits and a full social package.

After three years of service, a soldier acquires the right to use the military mortgage program, thanks to which he can buy an apartment of his own choice in any city in Russia. The main difference between military mortgages and civil mortgage programs is that throughout the entire service, the state pays the monthly payments on the loan for the purchased apartment in full. Thus, having served in the ranks of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation for 20 years or more, a soldier under the contract receives housing in his property virtually free of charge.
