Today, the largest team of servicemen of the spring draft of 2021 arrived at the main base of the Northern Fleet, the city of Severomorsk. Several hundred conscripts traveled to the Murmansk region in a military train for three days from Perm through Izhevsk, Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod, Yaroslavl, Vologda and Karelia.

The servicemen traveled in reserved seat cars in compliance with sanitary and anti-epidemic measures. Meals – breakfast, lunch and dinner – were organized in the dining car.

During the journey, the officers who received the personnel interviewed each of the conscripts.

All servicemen were in advance, even in the military registration and enlistment offices at the place of conscription, were distributed to various associations of the Northern Fleet and received uniforms of the corresponding colors: black for the naval units and the marines, green for the ground forces, and blue for units of the Air Force and air defense.

The first group of servicemen left in Kandalaksha and went to serve in the Arctic motorized rifle brigade. Several hundred people who arrived at the Vaenga terminal station in Severomorsk were sent by road to the Pechenga separate motorized rifle brigade, air defense units and coastal units.

On the way and upon arrival at the destination station, all servicemen were measured their body temperature and interviewed health complaints.

The delivery of conscripts to the Northern Fleet by a military echelon has not been carried out since 2013. This method in a difficult epidemic situation is one of the most convenient and safe, since it excludes unwanted contacts between military personnel and civilians along the route and at transfer points.
