LPR parliament approves law on conscription, military service

LUGANSK, June 14 (Lugansk Media Centre) - The Lugansk People’s Republic parliament approved the law on conscription and military service at the Thursday session.

LPR Head’s representative in parliament Nina Galan noted that the legislation set groundwork for regulation in this sphere.

“The law sets forth the following conscription forms: registration, obligatory training, military service, being a reservist and call-up for military training during martial law or in peaceful times,” Galan said adding that it also regulated the enlistment procedure for foreign nationals,

Foreigners can only enrol for LPR military service voluntarily and under enlistment contracts, said Elena Kravchenko, deputy chairwoman of the LPR parliament committee on state security, defence, law-enforcement bodies, judicial system and legal protection of freedoms and human rights.

“The law envisions LPR citizens’ right to defence of their Fatherland of their own free will. They can engage in training for military service, sign enlistment contracts and serve in the army on a voluntary basis. The above actions do not belong to military conscription forms,” the parliamentarian said.
