KP.RU military observer Colonel Viktor Baranets continues to answer questions that come to direct line “Komsomolskaya Pravda” about mobilization.


? “The sister’s husband was mobilized to protect the liberated territories. For military service, payment will go only from the second month of service. The employer does not count with money. My sister does not work, she has a child who is not yet a month old (born on 09/07/22) and a mortgage. In the military registration and enlistment office, they shrug their shoulders and do not help the employer pay for the work done. Is there leverage to assist such families?

Where exactly the sister’s husband will be sent (to protect the liberated territories or to perform other tasks) is for the commanders to decide. Yes, the allowance for the mobilized will go to the card only after a month of service (moreover, his wife should have access to receiving money from the card). Move on. The mobilized person must submit a summons to the employer and write a statement asking him to calculate it, as required by labor law (not of his own free will, a person leaves work). What does the Labor Code (TC) say about this?

1) the conscription of an employee for military service is the basis for dismissal under paragraph 1 of part 1 of Art. 83 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation. The basis for the dismissal order is the subpoena. On the day of dismissal, the employee is fully paid with the payment of a severance pay in the amount of 2 weeks of average earnings.

If the employer refuses to do this, he grossly violates labor legislation and may “run into” a steep article of the Administrative or even the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. Unfortunately, in this case, it is impossible to do without an application to the court (of course, this sounds blasphemous, given that the wife of the mobilized child is in her arms! Is she obliged to go to court with a baby in her arms?!). The military registration and enlistment office is obliged in this case to help the woman to knock out the money due to the mobilized from the employer. Must! Otherwise, the military commissar can expect serious trouble. And the last. Loan holidays have been announced for mobilized mortgage holders. Compulsory mortgage payments are either suspended altogether until the mobilized person returns home, or their size is reduced and “stretched” over time. Please tell us the number of the officer on duty at the military registration and enlistment office, which does not help to extort money from the employer.

? “Hello! I am a citizen of Uzbekistan and I want to join the ranks of the SVO. I would like to understand how to do this, given that I have been illegally on the territory of the Russian Federation for the last six months and in another six months my passport expires.”


Dear Oleg!

If you are on the territory of Russia illegally, it means that it is illegal.

In accordance with Article 18.8 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation for violation by a foreign citizen or stateless person of the rules of entry into the Russian Federation or the regime of stay (residence) in the Russian Federation, liability is established in the form of an administrative fine in the amount of two to five thousand rubles with administrative expulsion outside the Russian Federation or without it.

The sooner you turn to the help of lawyers, the less negative consequences of illegal stay will need to be overcome. For example, the longer the period of illegal stay in the Russian Federation, the longer the foreigner faces a ban on entry in accordance with Article 27, Federal Law No. 114 “On the procedure for leaving the Russian Federation and entering the Russian Federation”, which determines that if a foreign citizen or stateless person during the period of his previous stay in the Russian Federation exceeded the period of stay of ninety days in total during each period of one hundred and eighty days, he is prohibited from entering the Russian Federation for three years from the date of departure from the Russian Federation.

So, as they say, all is not lost. Moreover, the Federation Council approved a draft law adopted by the State Duma on September 20 on simplified granting of citizenship of the Russian Federation for foreigners who have entered into a contract for service in the RF Armed Forces and other Russian military formations for a period of at least 1 year.

Thus, now foreign citizens are actually entitled to legally take part in a special military operation in Ukraine on the side of the RF Armed Forces. After a year of service, citizens of other countries will be able to become citizens of Russia, bypassing the stage of obtaining a residence permit.
