The State Duma in the third reading adopted a law that will force men with a criminal record to pay military duty to the country. The experts explained to whom exactly and very soon they could hand over the summons, and also calculated the approximate number of those who can legally go to the zone of the SMO.

Persons with an unexpunged or outstanding conviction for committing a serious crime can now go to serve. And "serious" is a decent list of articles of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. Robbery, robbery, murder, drug dealing, etc. Only pedophiles, as well as persons who pose a danger directly to the state itself, were withdrawn from the mobilization.

When the initiative was just being discussed, Crimean Senator Olga Kovitidi made a statement that, to put it mildly, caused bewilderment. It followed from her words that convicts who fell under mobilization could be forgiven. Simply put, from the scene of hostilities, such people will no longer return to custody, but home.

“If the convict shows courage and heroism in the performance of military duty thereby proves his correction, then, on the proposal of the command, the court may release him from serving the sentence or the remainder of the punishment, removing the conviction or replacing the remainder of the punishment with a milder form”, - quote from Life.

Sergey Krivenko, director of the Citizen. Army. Law human rights group, emphasizes that under the new rules, only those persons who have already completed their sentences in places not so remote are eligible for military conscription and mobilization.

“Now you can call up people who are already at large, but with an outstanding criminal record. Such citizens are becoming standard military personnel, it’s just that before the state did not allow them to be called up, but now it has become possible”, - Sergey Krivenko specified.

HRC spokesman Vladimir Gladkov reminds: “Serious crimes are those crimes for which the maximum sentence is up to 10 years in prison. a person convicted of robbery. It does not matter, the main thing is that the crime is classified as serious. And we are talking about people who have served their sentences under such articles. And from the date of release, for eight years they are considered citizens with an outstanding criminal record. Unless, of course, did not apply to the court for early repayment of a criminal record.

Lawyer Andrey Muratov notes that the interpretation "with an outstanding criminal record" does not raise questions, that is, these are precisely the Russians who are no longer in custody, but you still need to wait for the publication of a document signed by President Putin.

According to a very rough estimate by Sergey Krivenko, hundreds of thousands of people may fall under the new mobilization rules. "But those who do not get - pedophiles and others, there are few of them. Approximately tens of thousands across the country", - the expert estimated.

Doctor of Philosophical Sciences, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, State Councilor of the Russian Federation Kamilzhan Kalandarov called the innovation very correct, necessary and timely.

"Personally, I support, this is right and there is no other option now. This is a whole layer of people who will be with Russia at a fateful moment. Yes, they once stumbled, they have already spent many years in difficult conditions, but now they can help the Motherland. This trust in them and for someone, perhaps even the opportunity to wash away their crimes", - Kalandarov believes.

Recall that before the adoption of the new law by the State Duma, in Russia, according to the Federal Law "On mobilization in the Russian Federation", citizens with an unexpunged or outstanding conviction for committing a serious crime were not subject to conscription. Under the exceptions, parliamentarians summed up persons with an outstanding criminal record, who were convicted of the following crimes: against the sexual integrity of a minor; committing a terrorist act; hostage taking; organization of an illegal armed formation; hijacking of an aircraft, water transport, train; illegal handling of nuclear materials; treason. As soon as the head of state signs the law and the document is published, the military commissariats can start serving summonses to former prisoners on the same day.
