Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a law requiring schoolchildren to perform community service, DPA reported on 5th of August.
Schoolchildren will be required to participate in activities appropriate to their age and their psychophysical characteristics.
The head of the parliamentary committee behind the bill, Olga Kazakova, proposed the idea in May. She wants students to be required to carry out such activities as planting trees or beautifying school premises.
In addition, the study of a subject called “Essentials of National Security and Defense” is introduced in schools. It will be studied from September 1 against the background of the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine. During the classes, schoolchildren will be introduced to military service and civil defense in theory and practice, and girls will also be trained in first aid.
