Russian Defence Ministry Has No Plans To End Conscription - Deputy CGS


The Russian Defence Ministry is not considering the possibility of switching to a fully contract-based army, Deputy Chief of Russian Armed Forces General Staff Vasiliy Smirnov said on 23 June, as quoted by Interfax-AVN military news agency website.

"For the Russian Federation, army conscription is better. It allows assigning a nationwide status to the army service," Smirnov said. "Every citizen should be ready to defend the state," he added.

"As regards knowledge-intensive posts and posts that are important for the troops' combat readiness, they should be occupied by contract servicemen," Smirnov noted. Therefore, Russia will keep its mixed system of manning the armed forces, he added.
