The Verkhovna Rada to register a draft law to settle the issues of postponement in the event of military draft and call-up papers

Ukrainian Parliament may draft a bill to resolve the issues regarding the postponement of military service during mobilization, as well as improve the conscription documents hand-delivery to persons liable for active duty service

Fedir Venislavskyi, People’s Deputy of Ukraine, Member of the Parliamentary Committee on National Security, Defense and Intelligence, and Representative of the President of Ukraine to Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, made this statement during a briefing at Media Center Ukraine – Ukrinform.

“First of all, the grounds on which a person is subject to a future military draft postponement for fulfillment of duty during mobilization are clearly defined. On the one hand, such measures are taken to prevent the misuse of the law, and on the other hand, to ensure that persons conscripted who are caregivers providing assistance and support to people with disabilities, children under the age of 18 can take proper care of them and are exempted from military service. All these issues have been improved,” explained Mr. Venislavskyi.

The draft law the Verkhovna Rada plans to adopt also provides for improvement as to the delivery of notices to conscripts who are called up for duty. 

“In particular, it is proposed that to avoid conflict situations and prevent persons liable for military service from somehow failing to comply with the legal requirements of local military enlistment office and social support centers representatives, persons liable for performing military service during the legal regime of martial law should have, along with their identity documents, a relevant document on draft physical examination, on being registered in the military, so that there is no reason for conflict situations and abuse,” explained the MP.

In addition, Fedir Venislavskyi noted, that the bill proposes to improve some issues related to the activities of all government agencies of state authorities, local bodies, enterprises, institutions, and organizations in charge of mobilization activities.
