Old Believers moving to the Far East under the state program of voluntary resettlement will receive a reprieve from military service. The decree on this was signed by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.

As stated in document, Metropolitan of Moscow and All Russia of the Russian Orthodox Old Believer Church Cornelius asked for the introduction of a delay. An extension will be given to those who work on farms. It will apply for the duration of the status of a participant in the state resettlement program.

The postponement and the rules for its provision will be in effect in 2020-2025. To obtain it, the migrant will need to submit to the military commissariat a certificate of a program participant and an extract from the Unified State Register of Individual Entrepreneurs on state registration of a peasant farm. If the conscript is not the head of the household, a notarized copy of the agreement on its creation will be required.
