“This year the number of issued certificates is about 30 thousand,” – stressed Sergei Pobirokhin, – “It is important, first of all, for the atamans to organize the issuance of certificates to young Cossacks and always in a solemn atmosphere, so that the presentation of the certificate is meaningful for the young man and will be remembered for a lifetime. “.

Particular attention was paid to the procedure for attracting members of military Cossack societies to military service and the developed new regulation.

In addition, the key issue on the agenda was the automation of the process of registering Cossacks in cooperation with military commissariats.
