Mikhail Degtyarev in the prepared draft law also prescribes benefits, which in the territory of the Russian Federation should be received by military personnel of foreign regular armies. Benefits include: the right to pay retraining in Russia, state support for job search, the ability to choose a region of residence in the Russian Federation, financial support from the state when renting housing, protection from probable harassment by foreign intelligence agencies, up to help in changing the name and surname without having to announcement of special grounds, state support for higher education.
In fact, the only barrier that Mikhail Degtyarev, in his birth-law, defines for foreign military personnel, is their involvement in crimes against civilians. And as for the rest, according to Degtyaryov, you are welcome, if the foreign serviceman himself wants to cross the border with Russia and take advantage of the proposed conditions, which are much more favorable than the conditions for ordinary refugees.
Obviously, the draft law, which deputy Degtyarev intends to issue to the Duma, by the way, is the deputy chairman of the science committee (apparently, the issue of refugees and foreign military personnel has shifted to the level of high technologies), is directed to the military of only one foreign army - the current Ukrainian one. In principle, Degtyarev himself does not try to hide this, stating that his offspring in the form of a bill can reduce the threat to civilians in south-eastern Ukraine.
If you don’t particularly delve into the essence of the bill being developed in the Liberal Democratic Party, and limit yourself to a superficial glance, everything seems to be great: the Ukrainian military, unwilling to carry out orders proportional to the commanders, are marching across the border, are on Russian soil, they en masse ( and even if it is somehow confirmed) that they did not take part in any of the operations against the civilian population. Then the legal machine of deputy Degtyaryov turns on, which by its mechanisms puts Russia in the position of accepting these servicemen with open arms, with their further training, housing, assistance in finding employment and even changing their names (probably Gritsko, and will become Ivanov so that Ukraine’s special services did not guess it). And then the peaceful residents of Donbass will immediately feel that there are fewer covered ones, ready to hammer at them from the Gradov and self-propelled howitzers and drop cluster bombs from airplanes.
In fact, the bill, which is conceived in the camp of the Liberal Democratic Party, looks like a creaky cart of three wheels, which refuses to move, rolling over on its side.
The first thing you should pay attention to: the use of the term “foreign military personnel”. It is clear that it would be strange if the law “On Refugees” separately established the status of the Ukrainian military. But on the other hand, if we mean exclusively sheltered, and in the text of the draft law we use the notion of “foreign”, then a priori this leads to the possibility of unhindered entry into Russia of servicemen from the most diverse, let's say, nearby states. Will it happen that the servicemen of the Tajik, Kyrgyz, Uzbek, Moldavian and other armies who wish to change their names, find a job and get financial support from the Russian government (that is, from the state budget) will trot down to Russia, forgive me? There is an opinion that this is exactly what will happen, because such military men have the right to declare that they did not take part in any armed conflicts at all (especially in the war against civilians) and that they have a position that does not fit in with their position government, and the orders of their commanders, they consider immoral. Or is it necessary to use the term "Ukrainian soldiers" in the bill?
From the theater of the absurd. Somewhere in a foreign army:
"Fell, wrung out!"
"Not! This order is inherently immoral! I'd rather go to Russia! I want to go to Moscow, pay me a two-room rental in Kuzminki and study at the University of Friendship of Peoples! ”
And how happy in this case will be the legal field, prepared by the deputy Degtyarev, these same governments, in which the Liberal Democratic Party, like the medieval Hamelsk rat-catcher, is going to take the military away ...
Another detail. Nadezhda LDPR that the mass exodus of the Ukrainian military from the ATO zone to Russia will reduce the passions in the Donbas and help civilians breathe deeply, arouses respect, but it also raises the question: why are the same Ukrainian military and civilian refugees from Donbass put in completely different conditions? From the side of this approach looks like a sorting, in which there is a place for the selection of the first and second grade. For some - universities and financial support for rental housing in any region they like, for others - tents in the border areas of the Rostov region.
Another question: does the initiative of 33-year-old deputy Mikhail Degtyaryov discredit the service in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in the official biography, the title of the serviceman as a person under oath?
Yes, the desire to support those who are not ready to participate in a civil war with their people is certainly excellent, but are there few military men in our country who are far from enthusiastic about the actions of their own government and who consider the orders of the commanders to be immoral? Does this mean that in the LDPR, in fact, they are not opposed to “letting” Russian servicemen to foreign countries in order to preserve the “image” and even their lives, God forbid, some kind of brawl, and even their career growth "over the hill"?
If it does not, then the bill must be completely rewritten (and this is in the best case for the bill), considering all the pitfalls, and now the initiative has plenty of these pitfalls. One of them is: why is the ordinary Russian taxpayer, whose state doesn’t hurry to compensate for rent of housing, as he is not always in a hurry to train in universities for budget funds, should ensure a bright future for those who are under a foreign oath and are very frivolous to this oath? Where are the guarantees that tomorrow he will not change his name in the next one and, in evil irony, will not undertake weapon against Russia itself, so that, as they say, “redeem”?
By the way, we should not forget the reaction of the militias, who are fighting to live, work and raise children freely in the land of Donbass. They, to put it mildly, are surprised by the position of Russia, in which those who are trapped in the cauldron are taken on Russian territory, cured, fattened, and then sent to Ukraine, where a considerable percentage again takes up arms and goes to kill their compatriots. In fact, the militia's efforts are thus reduced to zero.
Instead of supporting the military of foreign armies, it would be much better to continue to develop our own, without forgetting about the fulfillment of social obligations to other segments of the population.
