the point of innovation is to ensure that officers, warrant officers enrolled in graduate and postgraduate studies to doctoral and master’s theses, were obliged after graduation to sign a contract for at least 5 years of service. And the rest of the professional soldier with stars on the shoulder straps was forbidden to limit their presence in the ranks of the 12 months.

this innovation will not affect two categories of professional soldiers.

we are primarily talking about the rank and file sergeants and foremen of contract service. For them a one-year contract is still available.

the agreement with the commander of the military unit about 12 months of service are also permitted to officers, ensigns and warrant officers, remaining in the ranks more than the age limit there.
