Petersburgers of military age found draft notices in their mailboxes containing real information about them: last name, first name, patronymic, year of birth and residential address. In addition, they have the seal and signature of the military commissar. Senders are asked to bring their passport and military ID with them. The most curious thing in these "documents" is the warning: "The attendance is compulsory!"
The youngest of those called up is 38 years old, the oldest is 49, Fontanka.ru found out. The journalists of the publication visited one of the military registration and enlistment offices of the city, found out that citizens of mobilization age are called in for a conversation with them in order to "report to a higher authority". According to them, the military registration and enlistment offices have been tasked with intensifying the recruitment of contract servicemen.
As follows from the comments to this post, such "invitations" are made not only in St. Petersburg:
- I'm 50 years old. Today I called the military commissar. He also knew my full name and said that I should come... Nizhny Novgorod.
- Called are offered to sign something like this piece of paper: I do not mind my call from the reserve.
However, attention is drawn to the fact that, in fact, draft notices of this kind, according to the law, are handed over to the addressee under his signature. As one reader noted:
- Fontanka, you would consult with any freshman of any law school, not even a college, but a college. A draft notice that does not leave room for maneuver is handed personally into the hands under the signature. And not thrown into the mailbox and taken out by petty hooligans a minute after the postman left. Well, last resort with a delivery notice.
