The authorities in St Petersburg have started sending out electronic military conscription notices in test mode as part of the spring conscription in Russia.

Source: Russian local news agency Fontanka, citing Sergei Kachkovsky, Chief Enlistment Officer in St Petersburg.

Details: The test military draft notices are reportedly being sent to Russian citizens to their personal accounts on the Federal State Information System Gosuslugi.

Kachkovsky states that the issue of SMS notices is also being worked on.

Electronic conscription notices in Russia will reportedly be sent out in test mode during the spring conscription – in particular, in Moscow, conscription for military service will be carried out through the Gosuslugi portal.

Maxim Loktev, Chief Enlistment Officer for the Russian capital, said that conscripts who do not live at their place of registration in Moscow are tracked using the city's video surveillance system. »

He added that "100 percent" of the trash placed on the beach was removed by volunteers, and none of it had made its way into the ocean. »

An Eagle Who Adopted a Rock Becomes a Real Dad

A usually mild-tempered bird, Murphy gently rotated his rock, less shaped like an egg than a small meteorite, as though to incubate it.

A sign on the eagles’ enclosure attempted to abate visitors’ concern, noting that Murphy was “not hurt, sick, or otherwise in distress.”

Perhaps it was fate, then, when an orphaned eaglet, just a week or two old, was brought into the sanctuary this month, having survived a fall from a tree during a storm in Ste. »
