The Android application "Draftee Online" is an aid to any draftee, whether he intends to do army service or has the right to an exemption.
The app provides advice based on the rich experience of the lawyers at the human rights organization Soldiers' Mothers of St Petersburg, who help draftees to figure out the most pressing and complex questions of the military draft, and to defend their rights independently.
"Draftee Online" is set up so that a young person who suffers a violation of the law can find a case related to his own situation and receive concrete recommendations as to the actions he can undertake to protect his rights.
The application describes the most frequent situations that draftees encounter, as well as giving templates of the necessary declarations and complaints.
The application unites a large number of useful functions, which every draftee should have at the ready:
Kids can learn to shoot, climb on tanks and learn of past military glories in the Park Patriot.
When the doors of Park Patriot open to the public next year, the families who flock here will be treated to an exciting array of activities. The youngsters will be able to fire weapons, clamber on battle tanks, and drive military equipment. Then, once they're suitably tired out, everyone can settle down to watch a reenactment of a famous Soviet battlefield victory. And of course there'll be a recruitment centre for military age boys and girls to join the armed forces.
