The President of the Russian Federation has signed a Decree that increases the age limit for deferring IT-specialists from conscription from 27 to 30 years.

At the same time, it is necessary to comply with a number of conditions according to which the employee:

If the employment contract with the IT- company was concluded not later than one year from the date of graduation from a higher education organization or a scientific organization, the above requirement for the period of work is not taken into account.

To obtain a deferment, it is necessary to send the relevant list of citizens to the Ministry for Digital Technology, Communication and Mass Media. The deadline for sending information is not later than 50 calendar days before the start of the next drafting. The information indicates:
