All of them to the war? State Duma allows Russians with a criminal record and disabled to serve in the army under contract
The Russian State Duma passed a law that allowed people with a criminal record to serve in the army of the aggressor country under contract. The same "right" was given to Russians with limited fitness for military service.
The changes refer to the periods of mobilization and martial law. This was reported by Russian media on June 20.
It is noted that only individuals convicted of "high treason, espionage, terrorism, or crimes against the sexual inviolability of children" will not be able to sign a contract with the Defense Ministry.
Convicts will be given a suspended sentence. The new law provides for removal of convictions of mobilized and contract servicemen upon discharge or receipt of state awards.
We shall remind you that earlier Russian President Vladimir Putin assured Russians that today there is no need for "additional mobilization and introduction of martial law" in the Russian Federation.
