male citizens aged from 18 to 27 years who are exempted from military service as restricted to military service for health reasons and enrolled in the reserve are entitled to undergo a medical re-examination. If the said citizen is recognized as fit for military service or fit for military service with minor restrictions, he is transferred by the military commissariat to military registration of citizens who are not in reserve, and can be called up for military service.
The developers explained that many of those found to be limited to fit for military service after treatment and undergoing medical re-examination are considered fit (including with minor restrictions). However, at present, the call of these citizens is not stipulated by the legislation of the Russian Federation. At the same time, the senators note that “the military commissariats and the legislature receive a significant number of complaints from such citizens asking for consideration of the possibility of a medical re-examination in order to get into military service in the future.
According to the Duma Defense Committee, providing citizens with an additional opportunity for them to fulfill their constitutional duty and duty to defend the Fatherland deserves support, TASS reports.
