“Electronic Tweezer” for the recruitment process from Moscow. Russia will soon recruit citizens by sending conscription documents via a website in addition to traditional letters, under a bill to be debated on Tuesday aimed at making conscription easier.

If a citizen pretends not to have received the summons, he has two weeks to appear at the conscription office. Otherwise he will be banned from traveling abroad, driving a vehicle, making real estate transactions or taking loans.

“Calls will be considered received from the moment they are posted on a reservist’s personal account,” Andrei Kartapolov, chairman of the Russian parliament’s defense committee, said in televised remarks.

Currently, conscription documents in Russia must be delivered in person to the person to whom they apply from the local conscription office or through an employee, but proposed changes to the law will mean that the relevant documents will also be sent online.

Over 300,000 reservists are believed to have been deployed since President Vladimir Putin announced the emergency measure last year to support the “special military operation” in Ukraine.

After a chaotic mobilization last year, Russia tried to improve the process by digitizing its military records.

The Kremlin has pledged to correct what it described as “mistakes” in the conscription campaign, when men who could not be drafted due to age or medical reasons were called up to fight in Ukraine.

The initial announcement of the conscription measure prompted thousands of men of military age to flee the country last year, while protests – which were quickly quelled – broke out in several Russian cities. Russian officials have repeatedly denied planning a “second wave” of conscription.
