The Ministry of Health supported the proposal to restore military departments in medical universities

“We support the proposal in principle. The issue needs to be worked out,” Assistant Minister Alexei Kuznetsov told RIA Novosti.

Earlier, such an idea was voiced by a member of the social committee of the Federation Council, Honored Doctor of the Russian Federation Vladimir Krugly. He stated that medical workers in case of unforeseen circumstances should have appropriate training, which should be organized at the place of training, that is, the military departments should be restored.

Most medical workers in Russia are liable for military service, including doctors, nurses and paramedics, unless they have contraindications.

As specified on the government portal “Explain.rf”, in connection with the partial mobilization announced on September 21, medical workers will be called up in accordance with mobilization tasks and instructions that are part of state secrets.
