This paper studies the effects of compulsory military service in the Russian army on subsequent income and wages of conscripts. Russia Longitudinal Monitoring survey, RLMS-HSE, is used. It allows to estimate the effects of compulsory military service in the army in peacetime. In order to identify the causal relationship, a kink in the profile of the probability of being drafted into the army by date of birth is used. To eliminate endogeneity regression kink design method is implemented. The results suggest that compulsory military service does not have a significant impact on the wages and incomes of draftees in Russia.
