Crimean Senator Sergey Tsekov said that citizens of military age should be completely banned from traveling abroad.

“Everyone who is of military age should be banned from traveling abroad in the current situation”, - Tsekov said in an interview with RIA Novosti.

The senator also proposed raising the maximum fine for refusing to receive a mobilization summons from 3,000 to 50,000 rubles, RBC notes.

Last week, another member of the Federation Council from Crimea, Olga Kovitidi, said that a number of diseases, including flat feet and scoliosis, should be excluded from the medical criteria that prevent a citizen from being recognized as fit for military service.

Kovitidi, who is the mother of four children, said that it is time to review the medical standards of the military registration and enlistment offices and significantly reduce the list of diseases that prevent conscription.

“A number of diseases can be recognized as not preventing conscription. Now Russia needs not only a volunteer professional army, but an increase in the reserve of young people fit for service”, - Kommersant quotes Kovitidi words. Whether the children of Kovitidi herself are subject to mobilization is not reported.

Earlier it became known that since September 26, the FSB has already begun to prohibit conscripts from leaving Russia for the territory of Kazakhstan.

After Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a partial mobilization in the country on September 21, a stream of citizens who did not want to join the Russian Armed Forces poured abroad. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov denied reports that 1.2 million people are planned to be mobilized.

In conditions of panic in the regions and a massive accumulation of cars at checkpoints near the borders, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin instructed his subordinates to increase the awareness of citizens on mobilization issues.

In Kolyma, the Ombudsman has already received 300 complaints about massive violations of the rights of citizens during mobilization: the only parents of underage children, the elderly and seriously ill people who are not subject to conscription by law have begun to be taken to the front.
