The Head of the defense Ministry Sergei Shoigu announced that the spring conscription in Russia will take place, as planned, from 1 April to 15 July "in accordance with law." A few days earlier the press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov did not rule out that the Kremlin "will study" whether or not the adjustment of the term of appeal in connection with the spread of the coronavirus. Mr Shoigu promised that the military recruits will conduct appropriate testing, and on arrival to the troops they will be put in a two-week quarantine. Human rights activists insist that conscription "can and should be postponed at least until may".
