According to the legislation on military duty and military service in force in the Russian Federation, in order to ensure their military registration, citizens leaving the country for more than six months must visit the military commissariat where they are registered to be removed from the military register.
Until recently, citizens’ fulfillment of this obligation when leaving the Russian Federation was not fully implemented, and the military commissariats often did not exercise control over compliance with the rules of military registration.
Federal Law No. 127-FZ dated 14 April 2023 has substantially amended the legal regulation of current legislation on military duty and military service. This includes with regard to: enrollment in the military register; removal from the military register; the making of amendments to citizens’ documents of the military register that are required to be entered in the military register; and the electronic submission of notices that are implemented by entering data about them in the newly created unified electronic registry for military registration.
One of the new features of the amendments adopted by the legislature is the possibility of removing citizens who are obliged to be in the military register and amending military registration documents without citizens being present in person at the military commissariat.
