Lack of conscripts: Georgia revokes the right to re-deferment

33

In Georgia, they decided to change the legislation concerning military service. First of all, the changes will affect the issues of granting a respite for those whom the Georgian military registration and enlistment offices are going to call into the army.


The amendments to the legislation were initiated by the Defense and Security Committee of Georgia. The chairman of this committee, Irakli Sesiashvili, said about an obvious shortage of young people "in the recruitment segment." To resolve this issue, the issue of granting deferrals was agreed.

In particular, for persons of draft age, the repeated deferral from military service is canceled. Until now, the legislation in Georgia did not regulate such a moment as the absence of a delay in obtaining a second education (a lower level).

For example, the first deferral was granted upon admission to a university, the second - after receiving a diploma of higher education and admission, for example, to a vocational school. There is no such right in many countries.

Earlier in Georgia, measures were already taken to increase the number of conscripts in the armed forces. In particular, the upper level of the draft age was raised to 34 years. In 2013, Georgian deputies supported the initiative to reduce conscription service from one and a half years to one year. In the same year, it was announced that by 1 the Georgian armed forces would completely switch to a contract basis. But this did not happen either by 2017 or by 2017. Now the Ministry of Defense of Georgia is doing everything to also increase the number of conscripts in the army structures, which may also indicate the problems with the involvement of contract soldiers.

    1. The Soviet recruiting system was bad, they made their own - simple and transparent, yeah)
    2. People run from the call, run everywhere. But the Georgians seem to be in trouble with this. And no wonder.

      Slavery is generally poorly accepted by the majority.

        Do you also consider the need to go to work as slavery?
        Or maybe you think that people should have only rights and no responsibilities?

          I do not consider going to work a necessity, much less a compulsory matter.

            Conscription is about the same as studying chemistry at school. Some believe that they are being bothered in vain, since they will not be useful in life. But they are wrong. I hope there is no need to explain why.

      Yes, they have an army, slightly larger than the ballet of Sukhishvili. If even with such a scale there is a problem with conscripts, then it really is a problem.

    In general, it is strange, there is nothing at all a soldier. There should be no problem recruiting contractors.

        So they call about 10 thousand people a year. $ 10 million is enough to hire them under a contract. This is not much even for the Georgian budget.

    Problems with conscription, problems with contract soldiers, problems, problems ... And where did the real "Georgian patriots" like those who rode towards Tskhinvali with smiles and songs, equipped to such an extent that they themselves became scared at the mirror (though later who fled as best they could with a very miserable look)? Probably yelling in the squares is considered more patriotic than serving in the army.

      Let us recall the classics - "It was a difficult year: taxes, disasters, prostitution, banditry and shortage in the army." So it's time to create the "Alpine Black Grouse" squads.

      How where? They hate in fear of the new "08.08.08."

    Why do they need an army? They already know how to dance and sing, and their owners, in particular, the USA, are obliged to protect them. lol

    History lessons reach Georgians painfully and painfully, but they do! To lay my head for the ambitions of the Georgian leadership, I see not many people who want to, especially after 080808

      I fully support it. Money doesn't help here either. Although, I suspect that Georgia will offer Ukrainian militants to protect her. These are ready for anything for the money.

        These are cities and villages to fire on, to organize terror of the local population, this is what they can, but here they will meet a regular army. I think there will not be many who wish. In Crimea, they do not particularly climb, everyone knows what to expect

    ... the first deferral was provided upon admission to a university, the second - after receiving a diploma of higher education and admission, for example, to a vocational school

    These are isolated cases, moreover, unique, if they happen at all.
    They cannot influence the number of conscripts in any way. Not to mention that they will be called up in a year anyway, the call is not canceled.
    Some kind of law for the sake of law, empty lawmaking.

      As it turns out, there were more and more such "isolated" cases in Georgia every year. Young people who did not particularly want to tie their fate with the Georgian army even for a year saw a loophole in the law and used it. First, a university, then formally a vocational technical school, and during this time you can get a family with children. Therefore, they decided to give birth to the law.

    I remember in the Soviet years Georgians in the army - normal guys ... chachas are always treated (at sergeant gatherings in the locker room) ... in 345 there was one Georgian in intelligence - a hefty fellow, two meters away (and there all the rest are small), where did it go ... eh ...

    When Georgian politicians recognize South Ossetia and Abkhazia, this crap with the call will end immediately. And so the Georgians have grown wiser, they remember 08.08.08. And now he went into the army, and tomorrow, under bullets, either in Abkhazia or South Ossetia, they need it, that's why they disown the army like the devil from incense.!

    Well, at least Georgia has enough intelligence in front of the Turks not to lift the switch, otherwise you can also lose Batum-kale ("Batumi") to Sukhum and Tskhinvali: the Osmanlis are harsh warriors - they will have enough sticks for the Georgians! soldier
