Information on whether it is possible to buy a blank military call-up notice [RUS15131]

According to a Professor of History at Carleton University who knows Russia well, it is very easy to buy documents in Russia, especially in Moscow, at the present time (13 Sept. 1993). This was corroborated by a researcher at Department of National Defence who has recently returned from Moscow (13 Sept. 1993).

This response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the DIRB within time constraints. This response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim to refugee status or asylum.
