Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree granting the Old Believers a deferral from conscription. This will affect only those who have moved to live in the Far East.

As noted in decree, deferment of conscription will be provided for the years 2020-2025 to the Old Believers, who moved to a permanent place of residence in the Far Eastern Federal District and work in peasant (farm) enterprises. 

The decree has already entered into force. The government of Russia should determine the procedure for granting a deferment.

Old Believers have been asking for a deferment from the army for a long time. After meeting with the president at WEF-2019, Agrippina Anufriev-Yegoroff, a migrant from Brazil, told EastRussia that Old Believers who move to the Far East from non-CIS countries would like to receive other preferences, in addition to preferential mortgages: exemption of men from military service and obtaining Russian citizenship, in the country from which the Old Believers are leaving, and not in Russia.
