Andrey Kartapolov, co-author of the draft law on amendments to the Criminal Code on “mobilization” and “wartime”, head of the State Duma Defense Committee, clarified that conscription is possible if the graduate has a demanded military specialty
Graduates of military departments may be called up for mobilization if their military registration specialties are in demand, said in an interview with Interfax head of the State Duma Committee on Defense, former Deputy Defense Minister Colonel General Andrey Kartapolov.
“If their military specialties are in demand, they can be called up. If not, they can calmly work for the good of their homeland at the enterprises of the military-industrial complex, — said the parliamentarian.
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday announced a partial mobilization. Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu specified that 300,000 reservists would be called up— those citizens who have served in the army, who have the specialty and combat experience that the Armed Forces now need. He assured that the mobilization would not affect students and conscripts.
According to Kartapolov, first of all, soldiers, foremen and warrant officers under the age of 35 and junior officers under 45 will be called up first.
Before being sent to the unit, those who will be called up for service on mobilization, will undergo additional military training “taking into account the experience of a special military operation.” These servicemen will receive the status, payments and social benefits of contract soldiers.
Kartapolov— one of the authors of the draft law on amendments to the Criminal Code, which the State Duma adopted in the second and third reading the day before. The document proposes to introduce as aggravating circumstances the commission of crimes in the “period of mobilization and martial law”; and in “wartime”.

In addition, after the adoption of the amendments, the articles “Voluntary surrender” will appear in the code; (Art. 352.1) and Looting (art. 356.1). According to the first, violators of the law will face up to ten years in prison (in the absence of signs of treason), according to the second & mdash; up to 15 years old.
