Russian army recruits 1880s #general #russia

I have heard and read stories about Jewish brothers living with different families or using different surnames to avoid being in the army in Russia. All of it being anecdotal.

Where can I find proof of this? Is there a Russian law somewhere that states the requirements or exemptions for Jews serving in the army in the 1880s?
