Legislative confusion around partial mobilization has led to the fact that Russians liable for military service cannot fly abroad for vacations.

Despite the end of partial mobilization announced by Putin and Shoigu, many Russians face problems leaving the country, according to Russian media. Some men liable for military service are “turned around” at the border when they try to go on vacation to Turkey. The "creative approach" to the interpretation of the presidential decree by military commissars and border guards, the lack of a legislative framework regulating the rights and freedoms of citizens in conditions of partial mobilization, not only create problems for those liable for military service, but also sow panic in the country.

According to experts of the Border Control channel, which accumulates information about incidents when traveling abroad, several facts of blatant violation of the presidential decree have been recorded in recent days:

- a sergeant of the Airborne Forces at the age of 26, who served urgently, could not fly to the UAE, although he tried to do it both from Moscow and St. Petersburg;

- A 29-year-old Russian who had completed military service in his time, did not even receive a summons during partial mobilization, was not released abroad without explanation.

That is, refusals to travel abroad are not so rare. As in the period of partial mobilization. The employees of the Border Guard Service advised those who were refused to apply to the military registration and enlistment offices.

The military commissariats also do not have a complete understanding of how to deal with such a situation, experts of the Methodichka channel believe, asking a logical question: “Are the military commissariats entitled to issue any certificates allowing travel outside Russia after the president announced the completion of a partial mobilization?" This can be considered as a violation of the law.

Some military commissariats say that no documents are required, because partial mobilization has been completed. In others, it is recommended to personally appear at the military registration and enlistment office to clarify the information. Still others admit that the document flow does not provide for the issuance of certificates that allow travel outside Russia. Like, the military commissar can only sign a certificate that a citizen is not subject to partial mobilization.

Has the country's authorities, having completed partial mobilization, decided to leave the travel ban? Does the Kremlin not know that it was this factor that became one of the most negative during the mobilization measures? Or simply did not want to prescribe clear rules that ensure the observance of the rights of citizens to travel outside the country?
