Mobilized reserve servicemen with experience in the OMON or SOBR will be able to continue serving in the units of the Russian Guard, and not the Armed Forces, if they wish. The corresponding bill will be considered by the State Duma.
According to the head of the State Duma Committee on Information Policy Alexander Khinshtein, the Russian Guard applied with a corresponding initiative, proposing to consider the possibility of service in the ranks of the department of SOBR and OMON servicemen mobilized from the reserve. In addition, it is proposed to secure for them the right to conclude short-term contracts not only for the military, but also for law enforcement service in the National Guard. However, this will not be mandatory, ex-siloviki can choose to serve in the army if they wish.
Together with colleagues from the Rogsvardia and other departments, we started developing initiatives even earlier that will allow us to send military personnel mobilized from the reserve with experience in the police or police special forces, as well as in the internal troops, for further service in the Russian Guard
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Defense clarified that the autumn call for urgent military service has nothing to do with the ongoing mobilization, it will be carried out separately in a planned manner. All conscripts, regardless of the VUS, will serve on the territory of Russia, there will be no dispatch to the NWO zone. At the same time, all conscripts whose term of service has expired will be dismissed and sent to their places of residence.
It is planned to call up 120 conscripts for the autumn conscription, which fully satisfies the needs of the Ministry of Defense, even taking into account the special operation in Ukraine.
