From October 1, 2023, the Russian Federation will introduce fines for failure to provide assistance to military commissariats during the period of mobilization activities.
In accordance with the new law, administrative liability is introduced for late notification or failure to ensure the appearance of persons subject to mobilization. Employers and officials will be held accountable. For failure to provide assistance to military registration and enlistment offices, they will be fined: officials - in the amount of 60-80 thousand rubles, legal entities - 400-500 thousand rubles.
In addition, a fine awaits those who did not deliver equipment in a timely manner in connection with the citizen mobilization plan. The equipment needs to be supplied to military registration and enlistment offices and assembly points. Officials of various organizations and contractor companies that provide equipment will be responsible for such a violation.
In addition, from January 1, 2024, the age limit for military service in the Russian Federation will be increased from 27 to 30 years. The minimum age will remain the same – 18 years. By raising the age limit for conscription for military service, the state expects to increase the size of the conscript army.
The listed innovations are quite timely in the context of a difficult international political situation and the special military operation carried out by Russia in Ukraine.
