The Rada proposed to recruit people with disabilities into the army: conditions for mobilization

People’s deputies assure that those with disabilities can go to the Armed Forces of Ukraine voluntarily. They will be allowed to serve at the place of registration or residence.

Ukrainian people’s deputies proposed to call up people with disabilities to serve in the army after their consent. The relevant bill appeared on the website of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.

Persons with disabilities during martial law can be called up for military service with their consent and do it within the region in which they are registered or live, the document says.

In the explanatory note to the bill, the authors explained reason for the introduction of the new rule.

Due to the possibility of different interpretations of the phrase “to be called up”, there is a problem for persons who have a deferment from conscription for military service, but who have shown a voluntary desire to do it. For a correct interpretation and subsequent use, it is necessary to clarify the relevant legal norm,” the legislators noted.

The registered document establishes a ban on leaving Ukraine for men from 18 to 60 years old during martial law.

“The right to travel outside Ukraine during martial law may be granted to persons, the list of which was determined by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine,” the people’s deputies reminded.

It should be noted that on June 22, a bill was registered in Parliament, which proposes deferment from mobilization to citizenswhose relatives died or went missing during the all-out war with Russia.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky on June 23 announced changes in the rules of conscription into the army due to the attack of Russia. According to him, the military is considering several options, including based on the experience of Israel.

The Ukrainian Bar Association previously explained rules and procedure for serving subpoenas to the military registration and enlistment office. If the name of the future recruit was incorrectly indicated in the document, this will reduce the likelihood of being held liable due to failure to appear.
