Generals, admirals and marshals may well count on an additional 5 years of service if the president of Russia decides to sign a new contract. Putin’s proposed norm was supported by the Cabinet.
The Russian government has supported a draft law according to which the age limit for military service for marshals, army generals and fleet admirals will be increased. TASS quotes a response to the draft law that the agency has at its disposal:
“The government supports the law,” the document says.
The initiative was presented for discussion by Russian President Vladimir Putin on July 19. It was proposed to conclude a new contract with each specific marshal, general or admiral for the period indicated by the president after the expiration of the previous limit.
Today, the maximum service life is 65 years. The norm proposes to increase it to 70 years.
