YEKATERINBURG, November 1 (Itar-Tass) —— The number of contract servicemen in the Central Military District will grow by 1.5 times by the end of 2012, press secretary of the district commander Col. Yaroslav Roshchupkin told Itar-Tass. The district has more than 10,000 vacancies for sergeants and engineers, he said.
“Starting from January 2012 the average monthly wage of a contract serviceman will exceed 30,000 rubles. A number of bonuses and social benefits are planned,” he said. Military registration and enlistment offices in 29 federation constituents have begun the initial selection of candidates.
The latter will go to training centers for sergeant courses. They will sign contracts if they pass exams. “A five-level system of advanced training has been designed for regulating the professional and career growth of contract servicemen. All the contract servicemen of the Central Military District are being appraised. Their total number will exceed 30,000 by the end of this year,” Roshchupkin said.
