Belarusian Border Guards Will Capture Conscripts At Border

Border guards will serve summons to conscripts when they cross the border.

In 2018, it was not possible to locate more than 500 people who were subject to call-up during the fall military conscription in Brest region. This is the highest figure among all regions of Belarus.

Following the results of the regional inter-agency operational meeting on the subject of the state bodies’ compliance with the legislation on military service, the General Prosecutor's Office stated that the main reason is the un-co-operation between the military enlistment office and law enforcement officers.

The meeting participants decided to develop a more efficient algorithm for controlling the implementation of the conscription. In particular, the police will search for those who evade conscription, using available databases and the possible whereabouts of the recruits.

Border guards will serve summons to conscripts when they cross the border. And military registration and enlistment offices will be bringing to justice those responsible for violation of duties stipulated by the legislation on military service.
