Our communication with the staff of the military registration and enlistment office should contribute to the progress towards our goal. Don’t let yourself be taken away from it;
No anonymity. If you communicate with an employee who requires something from you, ask about his position and full name. If he refuses to report it – do not communicate with him.
The best defense is an offense. If the staff of the military registration and enlistment office from you or from the person who came with you demand something that is not included in your plans (for example, they demand that you give the original document or that the person who came with you to support leave the office, “because he does not have a power of attorney”, etc.), then you do not discuss this ridiculous requirement, but turn the conversation to the fact that you yourself put forward a requirement for the employee to fulfill his job duties, because the presence of another person with you in no way interferes with the performance of an employee or doctor of their duties. You politely but insistently repeat to an employee or medical specialist your demand to fulfill their duties. If instead he continues to babble on his unreasonable demands, then you start calling the regulatory authorities and complaining about the employee;
Respond clearly, emphatically and immediately to a significant violation of your rights: call the garrison and other prosecutor’s offices, the higher military registration and enlistment office, the reception of the commissioner for human rights in your region. Report from the scene about the violation by phone to the regulatory authorities and demand a response;
Remember the purpose of your visit even in a stressful situation;
After a visit to the military registration and enlistment office, send complaints about significant violations of your rights to the prosecutor’s office;
Out of context, these recommendations are difficult to understand. Therefore, we will consider these points in more detail below.
Where are we going? At the recruiting station or at the military commissariat?
Let’s first figure out where we’re going.
What does it really mean “I’m called to the draft board.”
There is a military commissariat. It is headed by a military commissar. He has a reception room where the secretary sits.
The military commissariat has a recruiting office.
At the recruiting station, events are held for conscription and registration (medical examination and draft commissions), personal files are kept. There is also a turnout desk, doctors’ offices, the department for the initial setting and the head of the department for conscripting citizens for military service.
If we come on the agenda, then we come to the recruiting station (the address where we are called is written on the agenda).
Usually, the recruiting office and the military commissariat are located in the same building.
It happens that the recruiting office is located in a different building, at a different address (for example, the military registration and enlistment offices of the Vyborgsky, Central, Primorsky, Admiralteisky and Kirovsky districts of St. military commissariat).
For more information on how the “military enlistment office” is arranged, see the material “Who is who, or the terrible beast of the military enlistment office”.
We follow the agenda. With whom, where and about what we communicate in the military registration and enlistment office.
When a young man comes on a summons to the military commissariat (in fact, to the recruiting station), he is not met at the door with open arms and a loaf of bread by the military commissar.
As a rule, the first person he sees is a security guard who checks documents and writes down visitors in the log. It’s okay, even good. There is proof that you came.
In the wake of the ban on the use of mobile phones with Internet access and other modern gadgets in military units, which have become an integral part of the life of a modern person, military commissars began to apply these bans on the territory of military commissariats. Stupid prohibition notices were hung on the walls.
None of the employees of the military commissariat or security guards are authorized to carry out any inspection of things or acceptance for storage (unlike the courthouse, for example).
If a person is already registered with the military (not the first time in his life he appeared in this place), then he goes to the turnout desk, where personal files are kept. This, of course, is not a table at all, but a room or a window like a reception desk in a clinic.
Order 400 of the Ministry of Defense contains Instruction Appendix N 31. The procedure for organizing the work of the recruiting office and the recruiting commission during the conscription of citizens for military service, which describes the entire process in more than detail, up to the one who meets people (and those who are already on registration, and those who came to register), where he invites, what he asks.
Usually people come according to the agenda. And they come to specific events that should be held in relation to them in the military registration and enlistment office. The meaning of the visit to the turnout desk is to show that you have come so that the employees find your personal file and take it to the office where you will begin your event (medical examination, draft board or clarification of military registration documents).
