The Russian military department supported the idea of ​​the head of the Just Russia – For Truth party, Sergei Mironov, to train schoolchildren and vocational school students for basic military training. Izvestia writes about this with reference to the relevant document.

The parliamentarian had previously applied to the Ministry of Defense with a proposal to include basic military training (NVP) in the compulsory secondary general education program. The ministry found the proposal worthy of attention and supported it, clarify Izvestia on Tuesday, November 8th.

The First Deputy Minister of Defense also proposed to establish a fixed number of hours allotted for NVP – at least 140 for the last two years of study.

For the successful conduct of training of citizens in basic military training, the department recommended providing for the professional retraining of teachers in the relevant subject. If necessary, it is proposed to re-staff personnel from citizens who have previously served under a contract in officer positions.

The need to return NVP to the school curriculum was discussed back in 2019. Former Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Aerospace Forces offered to allocate for her hours within the OBZH.
