MOSCOW, October 5. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday said he had signed a decree to grant deferments from the partial military mobilization for some additional groups of people, including students that study on campus or have a mixed on-campus and off-campus schedule.
"Educational and research institutions that have government accreditation, programs of high and higher education, including internship programs and probation assistantship programs.

A deferment also is granted to students of "educational and research organizations on post-graduate programs for scientific and scientific-pedagogical professionals, organizations engaged in educational activities under educational programs of secondary vocational and higher education, including post-graduate programs for scientific and scientific-pedagogical professionals, internship programs and probation assistantship programs located in the territories of innovative scientific and technological centers and institutions of spiritual education," Putin said.
