MOSCOW, February 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Close relatives of army servicemen drafted for compulsory military service to the Russian Strategic Missile Troops (RSMT) may look at the conditions in the army and meet commanders of the young conscripts in the framework of a conference organized for the mothers of the young conscripts this year.
Last year such a conference was held at three RSMT units only, said RSMT spokesman Igor Yegorov. More than 2,500 relatives of the recently drafted conscripts will arrive this year, the spokesman added.
The parents will see the conditions for rest and leisure of their sons, see what their meals are like when they are on duty under field conditions. The parents will also meet commanders and deputy commanders of strategic missile units who will speak to the servicemen's relatives, the spokesman said.
Special attention will be paid to personal meetings between the army unit commanders and the conscripts' relatives, during which the discipline of young conscripts and the parents' possible contribution to matters of strengthening the army discipline will be discussed. The mothers' conference will continue for two days, the spokesman said.
