Kirill Kabanov, a member of the Human Rights Council under the President of the Russian Federation, announced the development of proposals regarding mandatory military service for natives of Central Asia who received citizenship less than 10 years ago.

He wrote about this in his Telegram.

According to him, the possibility is being considered to oblige “new citizens” of Russia who received citizenship less than 10 years ago to undergo military service for a year. This applies to natives of Central Asia, people from Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.

“Refusal to perform military duty should entail the deprivation of Russian citizenship not only for the person liable for military service, but also for members of his family,” Kabanov said.

Kabanov considers such an initiative “an adequate response to the official ban on the part of the authorities of the above countries on the participation of their citizens in the SVO on a voluntary basis, for which they face criminal punishment in their homeland.” 

As Kabanov noted in a comment to the Russian propaganda agency TASS, the proposals will be prepared within a week, they will be sent to the Security Council of the Russian Federation, the State Duma, as well as the leadership of the presidential administration.
