In order to encourage military service in the Russian Defense Ministry is continuing to expand the legal framework for payment of allowances and other aspects. In particular, it provides for allowances for qualifying the level of physical military training and knowledge of foreign languages. But not just for the ability and knowledge, and for their applications in the performance of official duties.
