Faction “United Russia” is preparing a draft law on amendments to the Criminal Code Russiaaccording to which evaders from military service will be punished with a fine of up to half a million rubles or imprisonment for up to five years, report Izvestia, citing sources in Duma.
We are not talking about partial mobilization as such. According to the Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Security and Anti-Corruption, one of the authors of the initiative Ernest Valeevmany laws on mobilization did not work, since it had not been carried out since 1941.
As the parliamentarian stated, it turned out that Article 328 of the Criminal Code for draft evasion applies only to persons who are called up for military service for the first time. The MP called it wrong.
Valeev called the proposed initiative “the elimination of gaps in the legislation.” As the first deputy chairman of the faction noted, “Fair Russia – For the truth” Oleg Nilov, now this initiative is irrelevant, since partial mobilization has been completed. According to him, punishment in the form of imprisonment should be used only as a last resort.
According to other factions, it is better that the Russians consciously go to defend their country.
