The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine has lowered the age limit for citizens to be on military registration of conscripts from 27 to 25 years of age.
304 people’s deputies voted for the bill. In early May, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine stated that these changes were dictated by the fact that during martial law there is no need for citizens to be on the military register of conscripts under 27 years old.
“Firstly, the need for their annual arrival at the territorial recruitment and social support centers, including for medical examinations, leads to additional financial costs, a burden on medical workers and an increase in queues for passing the commission. While conscription for military service during martial law is not carried out,” the ministry explained.
In addition, the Ministry of Defense added that the long stay on the military register of conscripts during martial law leads to the fact that a significant number of citizens fit for military service who do not have the status of military servicemen cannot be called up for military service during mobilization.
On May 2, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine extended the period of martial law and general mobilization in Ukraine in connection with the full-scale invasion of Russia for another 90 days: from May 20 to August 18.
