Putin Signs Annual Order for Military Draft; 150,000 to Receive Notices

President Vladimir Putin has signed the order for the spring recruitment for military service, Novaya Gazeta reports, citing

More than 150,000 men will receive draft summons. The order also contains instructions to release from service all those personnel who served their terms already.

Yesterday, we reported that the Duma is considering a draft law to ban draft-dodgers from leaving Russia for five years. They are also intending to ban service in state agencies for the same period although the Constitutional Court has ruled against some aspects of this ban.
