The difficulties of the current draft campaign: how to overcome them

No matter what happens in the world, Russia will soon begin another draft in the army. So, once again, military registration and enlistment offices will look for in the general mass of conscripts healthy children who are necessary for planned rotation in a number of units and subunits of the army and fleet.


This means that medical institutions will again see already enough boring "chronicles", whom the military commissars have already enrolled in limited fit, but according to the order they are obliged to check twice a year whether they have suddenly recovered.

This means that many young men of draft age will again bother the secretariats of universities to receive a certificate of training, and therefore the right to deferment from military service.

The routine work of the military commissariats


On the one hand, this is the usual, routine work of military registration and enlistment offices, and on the other hand, life constantly throws up difficulties that must be overcome. The demographic hole in which the country is located is one of these difficulties. But there are "sudden." In particular, coronavirus. 

Most of the problems that the military registration and enlistment offices encounter during conscription are known and no longer cause heated debate in society. Moreover, the popularity of military service among young people is not declining. For many today, this is the only way to get a future life perspective, to break out of routine and hopelessness. Many go to the army with the thought of further service already as a contractor.

Very often there is talk about the differences between the recruits of the USSR and Russia. Veterans recall what brave conscripts they were. And they complain that today's youth is more sitting at a computer monitor than pulling themselves on a horizontal bar. Youth, on the contrary, talks about the new capabilities of equipment and weapons that can only be mastered by a conscript who is well versed in modern technology.

So is there a difference in the quality of draft material of Soviet times today?


Naturally, there is. And these differences are caused not so much by the reluctance of modern youth to play sports. In general, young people today are not very different from fathers at their age. Another thing is that those who are called up are different for a number of reasons.

Quite unexpectedly, the army and universities became adversaries. In fact, this “completely unexpected” is just the coquetry of both sides. Everything was expected. The fact is that everyone knew about the demographic pit. But, every sandpiper praises its swamp. The military needed to solve the problem of completing parts, and the heads of higher educational institutions the problem of filling student classrooms.

A new system of admission to universities, according to which a graduate of a school can choose an educational institution and become a student almost immediately after exams, provided the opportunity for a postponement to almost everyone who wanted it. Universities, in their desire to maintain state funding, take almost everyone to the budget places. An elementary desire to keep the university in the face of a shortage of applicants.

This is where the opinion appears that modern youth "will be worse than their fathers." No matter how the military commissars try, the law is the law and no one is allowed to break it. We take what is. 

Naturally, the question may arise about why the recruits themselves need it? Why do those who finished school badly and could not enter the university army? The answer is on the surface. Now it is quite difficult to get a job without a military ID. And the majority of parents, for obvious reasons, cannot support adult children on their salaries. So the parents are trying to send the "child" to the army.

Unexpected Summon Issue


If I write about draft dodgers, who are lacking even today, the understanding reader will grin skeptically. What an unexpected surprise, sorry for the pun. Indeed, deviators were, are and will be. Another thing is that thanks to proper propaganda of the service, real improvements in the conditions of service and other measures, young people have ceased to be afraid of service.

After a conversation with one of the doctors who is involved in the draft committee, I unexpectedly found out another problem that the military commissariats are solving today. Draftees on the medical board hide their illness! That is, obviously sick people want to go to serve. This, I must say, has happened before. But against the backdrop of statements by ultra-liberal representatives about the alleged 100% reluctance of young people to join the army, this is a particularly significant nuance.

Many people remember the idea of ​​the army, widely spread by Soviet propaganda, as a structure not only protecting the state, but a structure of “making men out of young men”. Any slobber, the field of service in the army becomes an almost ideal builder of communism. Even today, Maxim Perepelitsa or Ivan Brovkin is shown more often than modern films about the army.

So recruits hide their illnesses, parents hide their children's illnesses. This applies to any disease. Both physical and mental. But it is one thing to hide a very small ailment, and another thing to hide something serious. Imagine what will happen in the part if there are drug addicts, alcoholics, gambling addicts and other "mana". Moreover, the commanders will learn about their existence after the fact. And what about soldiers with chronic heart and other internal diseases?

What needs to be done today


The problem with the quality of recruits must be addressed today. Talk that modern conscripts prefer to get a higher education first and then serve in the army must be suppressed in the most severe way. One year of service is not three or two earlier. It is necessary to return the call for students. 

Moreover, you can argue this appeal with the same factors as universities. A student who has served in the army is more adult, he will study consciously, not in order to sit out time, but in order to obtain a specialty. And his further fate will develop better.

An engineer or other specialist who is drafted into the army immediately after graduation from the university causes much less confidence than the one who came to the company immediately after graduating from an academy or university and moves up the career ladder, grows as a specialist “in front of” the leaders.

And the officers who graduated from civilian universities, but who received officer ranks after serving as soldiers and sergeants for a year before studying at a university, will be much better prepared for military service. We will solve this problem too.

Further. For military registration and enlistment offices it is necessary to organize a completely different system for studying draftees. Not limited to duty characteristics and information, but to track the life of a future soldier from the moment of registration. Military commissars should know everything about the future warrior. Starting from the state of health, habits and inclinations and ending with personal life, relationships with relatives and neighbors.

We talk a lot about psychological services. I think the questioning of recruits by psychologists will not hurt. Stop relying on the experience and flair of military commissars. It is necessary to have scientific data and make a choice on them.

It is necessary to solve problems not ex post, but to act in advance. Plan for future challenges.

    Everything is correctly written - the personal life of conscripts is a matter of state security. So detailed and relevant, at the time of contacting her, information about her should be available to the competent authorities around the clock.

      stop I don’t understand ...

      Is that coming out? When called up, does a potential soldier fail to undergo psychological testing methods?

      Ka-a-a-sh-mar! Even(EVEN!) in the DPR, I passed tests and in the military registration and enlistment office (on the commission), and later in the unit several times cadre them ...

      True need especially (and separately) to note that the tests that we passed were designed solely for the call in a peaceful, calm time.

      That's for sure written about RUSSIAN ARMY , a call to her ranks? belay

      Or am I somewhere missing what is said about Bantustan dill?

    One year of service is not three or two earlier.
    This is the main problem. Do not teach anything in a year. It is necessary to return two years - this will solve the shortage of military personnel, and at least the degree of professionalism will increase.

      I agree, now it’s about nothing for a year. Because the 21st century, now the technique will be more complicated, it’s our siliceous guns and the Berdysh’s, and then we’ve been taught how to handle for 2 years, but now what’s become, progress, however .. Previously, I’ve been studying for two three years, and now you’ll just get used to it in a year, it’s time to get home already. I, of course, don’t call on you to serve under Tsar Gorokh for 25 years, but I consider 2 in the army and 3 in the navy an entirely acceptable option ..

        I was going to work yesterday in the second, in front of me are three "pits" thin and long, in tights with bare ankles and sneakers of size 43, loudly discussing where and on what buoys they saw both the military enlistment office and the army.

    What nonsense is that?

    Emergency service - atavism, a corvée option left over from the time of the slave system.

    To complete the combat units, it is enough to slightly improve the conditions of service (raise the salary to the national average). Enough volunteers.

    And to prepare the mob reserve, arrange something like a reserve or the US National Guard. Those who want to go through the training camp once a year and receive a small money for this will also be enough.

        Conscription comes from the days when he was, yes.

        Switzerland, however, stands apart - there are special traditions, a cult of militant independence (against the backdrop of Europe), plus a high standard of living, which does not allow forming an army of citizens for sane money.

        Yes, I wrote about this. In modern realities. 2-3 years. It is an eternity. The world will change three times. This is not the 19th century. Where he left for 15 years from his native village. Returned to it. But nothing has changed.

    I agree, we must go to the army to the university. I came after. And it’s not very comfortable when your classmates have already embarked on the path of career growth, and you and yesterday’s schoolchildren are dragging a round, rolling a quadrate, commanding an elder who is younger than you. In general, brains are degrading, self-esteem suffers, it would be better to go to college.

    Already a year of service in all. Yes, and it's hard to call a service. The camp is not difficult work and rest. And then they suck.
    Well, it's easier on the couch to fight in front of the screen. The broads with a key are all killed. The digital economy. And who in the event of a threat under the gun will get up to 40 and older ????

    And most parents, for obvious reasons, can not support adult children on their salary. So the parents are trying to send the "child" to the army.


    Directly all parents dream that their child will serve "in boots". So I see officials, deputies, oligarchs and the elite with an appeal to their son "The main thing for you sonny is to serve in the army and you will study later, after serving in boots."


    What needs to be done today


    you need to start telling the truth. And the truth is that the state needs a professional army and every penny spent should give tens of rubles of return. Is it possible to prepare such a person in a year?.
    No, it’s impossible, but turning military service into a reality show in the style of "military" in which the under-examined and under-tested are selected is stupid, dangerous and costly.
    So what to do, after all, the initial military training and the initial course of "training" must be hammered into the head of every citizen and, strangely enough, every citizen.
    Strange as it may seem, only the close interaction of vocational schools, colleges, universities and the introduction into their program of what salagu are taught in training in the educational process itself will help to eat fish and not throw money into the void.
    Professionals should serve in the army, and it is unrealistic to train them even in the "Soviet" two years.

    A student who has served in the army is more adult, he will study consciously, not in order to sit out time, but in order to obtain a specialty. And his further fate will develop better.


    any idea can be moved by such an analogy. For example, the fact that one who has served in prison will become more law-abiding.
    In the army, as in any other closed institution, they are taught to obey and obey orders and do not turn garbage into worthy people of the country.
