The Embassy of Russia denies fakes about the mandatory conscription of labor migrants for military service
Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- The Russian Embassy in Uzbekistan has denied fakes about the mandatory conscription of labor migrants in the Russian Federation for military service.
"The rumors spreading on the Internet about the mandatory conscription of foreign citizens to military service in the Russian Federation, including labor migrants from Central Asian countries, do not correspond to reality," the diplomatic mission said in a statement.
“Referring to a fake order of the Russian Interior Ministry, the attackers are replicating fake news that citizens of Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan temporarily staying in Russia are subject to partial mobilization. If they refuse to conclude a contract, they allegedly face the annulment of their work permit and deportation,” the report says.
“We call on the citizens of Uzbekistan, who are in Russia, not to succumb to various provocations and focus only on official information,” the embassy emphasizes.
