Ministry of Defense to Change System of Military Training for Students


Three-month training and special examinations with a specialization in the military specialty will now affect Russian students. On September 1, the rules of military training in civilian Russian universities are changing. The person who not passes the exams will be required to pass the military service after graduation.
The training by the new rules will be effectuated from September by 60 higher education institutes. According to the Ministry of Defense, more than 15 thousand boys stated their willingness to pass training with a specialization in the military specialties: soldiers-sailors, sergeants, petty officers and reserve officers.
The essence of innovation is following: if there is no the military department in the high school, a student can receive military specialty in a single inter-university center of military training. Where such possibility is absent, the other forms of training will be developed, including the use of Ministry of Defense high schools and military units.
