Department of Defense decided not to involve specialists from the high-tech industry and a number of organizations from the financial sector in the partial mobilization. Among those who will not be called up are citizens with higher education who work in certain specialties in the banking sector, the IT sector, organizations that are mobile operators and in the media. According to the Ministry of Defense, they explained that this was due to the need to ensure the stable functioning of the country’s financial system, as well as its high-tech industries and backbone enterprises.

This is what it says in the Ministry of Defense directive. Highly educated citizens who work:

– in accredited organizations that are active in the field of information technology and those involved in the development, development, implementation, maintenance and operation of IT solutions, as well as in ensuring the functioning of the information infrastructure;

– in organizations that are Russian telecom operators and those involved in ensuring the stability, security and integrity of the functioning of individual communication facilities, including data processing centers, as well as communication facilities and communication lines of the public communication network of the Russian Federation;

– in backbone organizations in the field of information and communicationas well as their interdependent persons who are the founder and (or) editors, publisher of a registered mass media and (or) broadcaster of a TV channel, radio station and are involved in the production and (or) distribution of media products;

– in organizations that ensure the stability of national payment system and financial market infrastructure, bank liquidity management, money circulation.

At the same time, the Ministry of Defense has not published a specific list of organizations. KP.RU tried to find out which employees of which organizations would not be partially mobilized.

As it turned out, in the register of recognized organizations, active in the field of information technology (it is published on the website of the Ministry of Digital Development) there are more than 30 thousand companies. Whether the heads of all these companies will be able to submit data to the General Staff so that their employees are not subject to partial mobilization is still unknown. The Ministry of Digital Transformation has only clarified that highly educated people who work full-time in their specialty cannot be covered by the mobilization. As stated in the Ministry of Defense message, the lists provided by the heads of the concerned organizations will be considered the basis for exemption from conscription for mobilization. It is not yet known exactly how companies should act to grant their employees a deferment from military service. The Ministry of Digital Development clarified that this procedure is specified.

There are 79 organizations on the list of information and communication backbone companies. Among them are Yandex,, Rambler, Kaspersky Lab, Rostelecom, T2 Mobile, MGTS, MTS, Vympel-Communications, Gazprom Space Systems, Russian Post, Eksmo and Enlightenment publishing houses, Komsomolskaya Pravda, Moskovsky Komsomolets, Arguments and Facts, Kommersant newspapers, the news agencies Rossiya Segodnya and ITAR-TASS, VGTRK, Channel One, TV Center”, TV companies “Mir” and “Star” and others.

With regard to organizations that stability of the national payment system and the financial marketthen the head of the Central Bank has already given a statement Elvira Nabiullina. According to her, Bank of Russia employees, financial infrastructure organizations and those working in key areas at banks can be granted deferment.

“Such financial sector workers include specialists responsible for critical infrastructure, payments and settlements, collection, operation and protection of information systems, shift workers and specialists who work with the public and businesses,” Nabiullina said.

According to her, the deferral for employees of the banking and financial sector is important so that people receive salaries, pensions and benefits on time, payment cards work, money transfers and loans are provided.

The heads of which particular banks can request their employees to defer from the military is still unknown.

Komsomolskaya Pravda has sent a request to the Ministry of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Media of the Russian Federation with a request to provide an up-to-date list of IT companies, telecom operators and the media, whose employees have the right to postpone mobilization. We will publish this information as soon as we receive a response.
