The military registration and enlistment office declined to release projected numbers for recruiting conscripts for the spring campaign. While the psychiatrist talked about the details of the medical examination. According to the specialist, the conscript is first offered to assess his mental health himself. At this time, the doctor pays attention to facial expressions, hand movements and reactions to additional questions. In case of suspicion of mental disorders, the doctor refers the patient for an additional examination.
“I make a preliminary diagnosis and refer to a specialist with the appropriate profile. Now everything is quite strict with this, the rules have become stricter, and conscripts can no longer escape examination, ”explained the psychiatrist.
