MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
In accordance with the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation dated September 30, 2021 No. 556, in the fall of this year, 127.5 thousand people were called up and sent to military formations and bodies to undergo conscription military service in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.
This year, the autumn conscription of citizens for military service took place, as in previous draft campaigns, in the context of the spread of coronavirus infection. Military commissariats were transferred to an enhanced anti-epidemic mode of operation.
Taking into account the measures taken to counter the spread of coronavirus infection, adjustments were made in advance to the work plans of military commissariats and draft commissions. The arrival of conscripts at the military registration and enlistment offices was envisaged depending on the development of the situation in the regions.
The draft commissions began their work on October 1, observing all the necessary safety measures in the fight against the spread of coronavirus infection. First of all, citizens were summoned to the meetings, who could be guaranteed to be sent to the troops.
In order to ensure safe conditions for conscription activities, military commissariats of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation were provided with personal protective equipment and non-contact thermometers, and the necessary supply of disinfectants and express tests was created to determine the presence of COVID-19.
On October 20, conscripts were sent from the assembly points of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation to formations and military units of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. All conscripts, before being sent to the places of service, were tested for the presence of coronavirus infection and were provided with a daily uniform: for the Navy – black, for the Aerospace Forces and Airborne Forces – blue, for other types and types of troops – khaki, as well as bank and personal electronic cards , medical masks and travel bags, which includes a hand sanitizer.
The barrier control organized at the recruiting and assembly points of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation, as well as testing of conscripts, made it possible to timely identify and prevent conscription for military service about a thousand citizens infected with coronavirus infection.
Thanks to the unprecedented measures taken by the military authorities in cooperation with the executive authorities of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation, local government bodies, to provide the necessary amount of medical property, to develop work algorithms and monitor their implementation during the work of draft commissions, recruiting and assembly points of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation, as well as careful planning of military transportation, incidents and penetration of coronavirus infection into the formations and military units of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation were excluded.
To ensure military transportation, 31 military echelons, 55 flights of aircraft of the aviation of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, 61 charter flights of civil aviation and more than 2 thousand individual carriages in passenger trains in which only military personnel were transported, as well as road transport of military units were involved.
The Main Organizational and Mobilization Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation organized a system for monitoring the process of conscription of citizens for military service at all levels and synchronized with the work of the system to counter the spread of coronavirus infection in military commissariats and assembly points of the subjects of the Russian Federation.
At the same time, the main work was entrusted to the employees of the military commissariats, who performed the state task in a difficult epidemiological situation, in the conditions of restrictive measures introduced in the regions of the country.
Particular attention was paid to the recruiting of scientific, research and production and sports companies. More than 320 young children were sent to scientific and scientific-production companies (in total, more than 650 people serve in scientific companies). More than 200 people were sent to sports companies (in total, about 400 people serve in sports companies). It should be reminded that members of the Russian national Olympic sports team are sent to sports companies.
The practice of this call, like the previous ones, has shown that young people who arrived at the military commissariats of municipalities at the beginning of the call have the right to choose to serve in various branches of the Armed Forces and combat arms, taking into account their state of health and the results of professional psychological selection.
As in the previous appeals, the work of “direct telephone lines” was organized by the Main Organizational and Mobilization Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation and the organizational and mobilization directorates of the headquarters of the military districts and the Northern Fleet, which received about 2 thousand calls. At the same time, most of the conscripts and their loved ones were interested in the issues of passing draft measures in the context of the spread of coronavirus infection.
