Goremykin recalled that now the age limit before the lieutenant colonel is inclusive - 45 years, for the colonel and captain of the 1 rank - 50, major general, lieutenant general - 55 and colonel general, army general - 60 years.
According to the general, this amendment has now been approved not only by the Ministry of Defense, but also by almost all executive state bodies.
Goremykin did not specify which one, but noted that this is not the Ministry of Finance. “The Ministry of Finance supported us,” he stressed.
The new law was agreed at the Ministry of Justice, at the institute of comparative analysis of legislative activity. “It is almost ready for submission to the government and further consideration in the State Duma,” Goremykin added.
“We do not exclude the possibility of further extension of service (for a new limit, which will be set with amendments),” he continued. General explained that it is assumed that contracts may be made for up to ten years above the existing standards for military service by age.
