On January 13, the Russian Parliament approved a law that only fathers with at least 4 children of their own will be exempted from military service.
Russian Duma Women’s Representative Nina Ostaniana said that the legislation was imposed after his wife sued the Russian military recruitment agency on January 6 for the father of three children who was called up for military service in St. Petersburg.
At the end of 2022, when recruiting new Russian soldiers, President Putin ordered fathers with children and many sons and daughters not to serve in the military, but the exact number was not specified.
But in most states, those who have 3 or more children are exempted from military service, and the Hluttaw set a minimum of 3 children. Russian Duma woman representative Nina Ostaniana said that the lawsuit by the mother of three children from St. Petersburg led to the exact number being fixed by law.
According to the national requirement, only those who have at least 4 children will be exempted from military service, and the original announcement of 3 or more children has now been canceled by law, Nina Ostaniana announced in the parliament.
If those who have at least 3 children are to be released, St. Petersburg will win the lawsuit against the mother and prosecute those who were ordered to serve in the military. Russian news reported that the mother of three children from St. Petersburg has lost her case because of the 4-person law.
