Vasily Tonkoshkurova quotes news agency TASS:
In those regions where regional and zonal centers are actively involved in the work, young people are more willing to go to serve in the Armed Forces, the number of citizens evading from activities related to military conscription is significantly reduced. As a result of 2015, the number of such citizens has already decreased by almost 28 percent.
This statement was made by the representative of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation during the on-site meeting of the interdepartmental commission in the Stavropol region.
The general noted that today in 45 regions of the federation there is an 231 center for the patriotic education of young people. Among these subjects are the Republic of Crimea and the hero city of Sevastopol.
It is noted that almost every fifth modern draftee goes to the service, having received a higher education. Even 15 years ago, the number of university graduates in the recruits of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation was no more than 7%.
