In 2020, more than 900 residents of the westernmost region of Russia applied for contract military service in military units and formations of the Baltic Fleet and the Western Military District.
Since the beginning of this year, the Kaliningrad point of selection for military service under a contract based on the results of a medical examination, professional and psychological selection and passing of standards for physical training, about 400 residents of Kaliningrad and the region have been sent to service under a contract on ships, coastal units and marine units of the Baltic Fleet and Western Military District.
According to the head of the selection point for military service under a contract of the first category in the Kaliningrad region, captain 2 rank Dmitry Sushkov, this year the specialists of the selection point carry out their work together with public organizations of the region. In addition, in 2020, only in Kaliningrad, the work of mobile selection points was organized five times as part of patriotic actions and public holidays. In the course of the work, the specialists of the mobile point also visited the cities of Guryevsk, Gusev, and Baltiysk in the Kaliningrad region, where they also conducted a preliminary selection of citizens.
Future servicemen under the contract will receive a decent monetary allowance, higher than the average salary in the region. In addition to monetary allowances, a contract soldier and his family enjoy benefits and a full social package.
After 3 years of service, a soldier acquires the right to use the “military mortgage” program, thanks to which he can buy an apartment of his own choice in any city in Russia. The main difference between the “military mortgage” and civil mortgage programs is that throughout the entire service, the state pays 100 percent of the monthly loan payments for the purchased apartment. Thus, having served in the ranks of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation for 20 years or more, a soldier under the contract receives housing in his property virtually free of charge.
