spring conscripts will not be sent to war

The General Staff of the Russian Federation stated that conscript soldiers of the spring conscription will not be sent to the Northern Military District, reports “Interfax”. The duration of military service in the army remains the same – one year.

The spring conscription campaign will take place from April 1 to July 15.

The head of the mobilization department of the General Staff of the Russian Federation, Colonel General Yevgeny Burdinsky, said in an interview with the Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper that “citizens called up for service will not be involved in participation in a special military operation.”

According to Burdinsky, the events of both the past and the upcoming conscription “are in no way connected with the conduct of a special military operation.”

It is planned to begin sending young recruits to the troops from assembly points of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation on April 15, 2024, he added.

The majority of conscripts from military commissariats will be sent to training formations and military units, where they will master modern military equipment, receive a military specialty and continue to serve in accordance with the military training they have received.

The spring conscription will take place in all constituent entities of the Russian Federation with the exception of 54 separate regions of the Far North and certain localities equivalent to them, where citizens are called up for military service only in the autumn conscription campaign.

This is due to the climatic characteristics of the Far North. Those who are directly involved in sowing and harvesting will not be called up for military service – they are called up for military service once a year from October 15 to December 31,” Burdinsky said.

From January 1, 2024, the upper limit of conscription age has been raised to 30 years.

According to official data, during the previous autumn conscription, 130 thousand recruits were sent to military service (1 year).
