“For the first time the number of citizens called up for military service, reduced by tens of thousands of people compared to the same calling for the fall of 2016, said Thursday, September 28, the first Deputy chief of the Main organizational-mobilization Directorate (GOMU) of the General staff of the Armed forces of the Russian Federation Yevgeny Burdinsky. — Significant reduction was the result of recruitment of privates and non-commissioned officers military personnel undergoing military service under the contract”.
As explained in the defense Ministry, from 134 thousand recruits 15 thousand will be spent on the service already trained in military occupational specialties (e.g., driver, operator, mechanic, etc.). The training they received in DOSAAF of Russia and the organizations of secondary professional education.
In addition, the Ministry said, as recruits will be sent to the troops. At the Assembly the recruiting office all will wear a casual uniform. It comes in three colors: Navy — black for ATT and VDV — blue, for other species and genera of troops — protective. Delivery to the place of service provided by rail, road, air or sea transport.
For example, in the Kamchatka and Sakhalin recruits will fly on the aircraft of the military transport or civil aviation, and then, perhaps, they will have to travel more and by sea. But no matter how many had to go hungry, they will not stay, food provided along the way. Those who will fly aircraft at military airfields are already waiting for special items, which created favorable conditions. Each will have three hot meals and a bed in case of flight delays. If you catch a train more than three days, then feed the guys will be in the dining cars. By the way, the same service is waiting and those who have served and returned home.
