It is assumed that the Federation Council may consider this document tomorrow, 21 September.
Olga Kovitidi clarified that, in accordance with the amendments, when committing crimes against military service, an aggravating circumstance will be the fact that they are committed not only in conditions of an armed conflict or during hostilities, but also during a period of mobilization or martial law and wartime.
