History 21/03/20 What Soviet men were exempted from conscription to the front

In the first place was exempt from conscription to the front executives – chairmen of the territorial, regional, city and district party committees. Often in the occupied territory they were headed the guerrilla units operating behind enemy lines. In the villages often called all who came for health reasons. Often in the village during the war, remained alone women, the elderly and minor children.

why put fellow players Starostin
were Exempt from conscription and many athletes. As example is the story of four brothers, Starostin, known to players of “Spartak”. They had a reservation, according to investigators, the money helped to “hang” from the front to the dozens of other military service and at the same time spread anti-Soviet agitation. All four of you and a few others from the sport society “Spartak” as a result, planted camps of the Gulag.

Then when the war was broken and the red Army took fresh strength, turn and reached them.

As a result, at the end of the great Patriotic war, when recapture thieves relapsed and was back in the area, the lawyers of the old school, they are no longer considered authorities. These differences between “spun” thieves-and not the veterans who fought authorities resulted in the so-called bitch war with many casualties on both sides.
