Information on whether an exemption from military service may be granted if a draftee is married and has a child. [SUN8815]

According to an Amnesty International document, in the Soviet Union, "persons suffering from illness which renders them temporarily unfit for military service, as well as certain categories of students and individuals with family obligations, can have their call-up deferred. Those whose military service is deferred can be re-called to active service at any time until they reach the age of 27" (1988, 22).
No further information is currently available to the IRBDC on this topic.
