State Duma Deputy from Crimea Mikhail Sheremet said that the format of military service, in which conscripts serve for one year, cannot ensure proper training of soldiers.

Sheremet believes that the period should be increased to two years.

- It is very difficult and problematic to train and prepare during the year. But two years is quite the best option,” Sheremet said, calling a two-year service life a necessary measure that must be introduced immediately to increase the combat readiness of the army.

At the end of October, Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for the Russian president, said that the Kremlin had not discussed an increase in the term of military service or the possibility of conscripting women.
