Topics of focus:

  • The need to change the legal status of cadets of higher military educational institutions during the russian-Ukrainian war;
  • Why should cadets be equated with contract servicemen?
  • Consequences of such changes in legislation;

More information: on March 13, 2023, a petition appeared on the website of the President of Ukraine calling for cadets of higher military educational institutions to be equated with contract service soldiers. As the author of the petition Yuriy Havrylyshyn notes, now cadets are equated with conscripts. Because of this, they are constantly faced with a prejudiced, low-value attitude on the part of other military personnel. This also applies to monetary support, which is currently 20% of the subsistence minimum. According to the author of the petition, it needs immediate changes.
