The campaign is planned to be held in such a way that those who wish to conclude a contract with the Ministry of Defense can do it without losing time and visiting numerous instances. For this purpose, it is planned to deploy special mobile selection points for contractual services directly in the central squares of these cities. In these mobile units, applicants will be able to pass not only an interview and professional psychological selection, but also a medical examination as part of the preliminary medical examination.
