Russian President Dmitry Medvedev signed a decree on March 31, which said another call in the armed forces. Under this decree, in the spring of this year will bring in the Armed Forces 218.7 thousand recruits. This is 60 thousand recruits less than the fall of 2010. Coupled with the fact the representatives of inter-regional public organization of military aid Soldiers' Mothers "believe that the Department of Defense will not be able to accomplish even this plan. Because of conscription is currently being hidden for more than 200 thousand people.
Earlier, representatives of the Defense Ministry voiced plan, which supposed to call in the spring of 2011 203.7 thousand people. In the words of Chief of Defence General Staff Colonel General Vasily Smirnov, additional recruits will be called upon in the internal troops. Call the army will go from April 1 to July 15 this year for people from 18 to 27 years.
Even with the larger plan to call is scheduled for 60 thousand people less than last fall. Smirnov explains it in-1's, the fact that at the present time are called recruits, who were born in the 1990s, when there was a demographic decline, in-2, eagerness to improve the quality of draftees. Earlier in the Ministry of Defence has already complained about the rather weak health of conscripts. Thus, according to the colonel-general, about 30% of recruits honey Commission recognized for passing worthless service. In addition, more than 50% of recruits are encouraged to restrictions on health that do not allow them to serve in some military branches, for example, in the airborne troops. Chief of Staff assumes that the number of appeals that will follow, will not differ from it by more than 3-5 per cent.
According to the head of the Soldiers 'Mothers' Svetlana Kuznetsova, the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation fails to fulfill plan on an appeal in the prescribed amount. As an example she gives military recruitment offices in Moscow, which the heads of "grasping at the head of the orders, the". Kuznetsov says that in the current time there is no recruits, and military commissars do not know who fill any niche. She is confident that when the draft boards usvoyut that they did not get the recruits, then start raid, so called "appeals of Day 1."
It is worth noting that according to the General Staff of the Ministry of Defense, in the current time from the call evaded more than 200 thousand people, it's almost as much as you need to send in the army in the spring of this year. But along with those in the autumn conscription campaign against the fugitives was initiated only 80 criminal cases. During the vernal call military commissariats conduct raids will be even more difficult because the law enforcement officers, which came into force in accordance with the law "On Police" can not participate in such events. Deputies of the State Duma tried to assist the implementation of the plan by making the bill which extended call until 31 August to 31 December. This measure would lead to the fact that the soldiers who were called in the spring, would serve longer for at least 1 month. This bill is not found support in the presidential administration, which instructed him to refine and consider increasing the number of contract.
Coupled with the fact hazing as before remains the main problem of the armed forces. According to chief of staff, disk imaging, recruits, 42% of which have never been trained and did not work, the habit of hooligans on the citizen is transferred to the barracks. As proof of this are the data of the Main Military Prosecutor's Office, which states that at the beginning of last year in the number of troops offenses decreased by 12-14%, and at the end of the year the number of crimes has grown by 16%. Among the atrocities committed nearly 25% due to bullying. It is sent to the increased attention to the Chief Military Prosecutor Sergei Fridinsky. He pointed out that the commanders of military units do not pay the attention to the fact that members of different ethnic groups and fraternities are trying to enter the barracks their orders. Tribute to the effect of anti-bullying and gave no reduction of the term of military service. The fighters continue to share in the "old" and "young." According to the prosecutor, hazing is a basic requirement such a huge number of suicides in the military. Thus, only in January and February of this year, the army units were committed 500 crimes related to violence. As a result of their two soldiers were killed and 20 injured.
