“This result has been achieved thanks to coordinated work of neighborhood recruitment stations, local institutions and the police,” the press service of the city administration informed PenzaNews agency.
According to officials, this campaign has been marked by increased numbers of recruits born in 1987, who had only months or even days until end of their recruitment age.
“According to recruitment office staff, the young want to serve in the Army due to a new law that states people without any term in the armed forces do not receive their military documents, which will prevent them from being employed in the government and police forces,” explained the Penza administration.
