Russia scraps upper age limit for recruits - report

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a measure that will get rid of the upper age limit for military recruits, according to the TASS news agency.

The bill, which was already passed by the Duma last week, will allow army veterans to return to service and help the country conduct its military operation in Ukraine.

The limit in place up to now stopped Russian citizens over the age of 40 from signing up as recruits.
