From April 1, as part of the call for active military service, Russian citizens will be handed summons in electronic form.
This was announced by Rear Admiral Vladimir Tsimlyansky, head of the Main Organizational and Mobilization Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Federation:
This year, military registration events were held in a new format. For the first time, we received information from various federal, regional and municipal authorities in electronic form. At the same time, in order to eliminate errors, duplication of information was also carried out by obtaining printed information on paper.
It is assumed that electronic subpoenas will be served through the portal of the State Service.
In the State Duma of the Russian Federation there were heated disputes regarding this innovation.
Deputy Shvytkin said that deleting a profile on the State Services would be considered evading the army. Senator Klishas replied that he did not know such a law.
Indeed, the legislation of the Russian Federation does not say anything about the possible delivery of subpoenas in electronic form.
However, users of social networks noted that it became impossible to delete an account on the State Services portal. The Ministry of Digital Development explained the situation as a “software failure”, but explained that now it is possible to delete an account only through personal presence at the MFC.
