Poroshenko instructed to regulate the departure of persons subject to conscription abroad

Порошенко поручил урегулировать выезд за границу лиц, подлежащих призыву

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko instructed the Cabinet of Ministers to consider the issue of legislative regulation of the procedure for traveling abroad of Ukrainian citizens subject to conscription for military service for mobilization for a special period.

This is discussed in the presidential decree on additional measures to ensure the holding of partial mobilization in 2015, the presidential press service reports depo.ua.

The President instructed the government to ensure the order of application of the norms and provisions of a number of legislative acts on mobilization.

In particular, the Cabinet of Ministers should develop and submit for consideration of the Verkhovna Rada bills on amending the law of Ukraine:

  • on military duty and military service with regard to the settlement of the issue of dismissal from military service for the mobilization (in a special period) of servicemen in order to ensure the rotation of personnel;
  • on the doctrine of social protection and psychological rehabilitation of persons affected in the performance of military service duties in Ukraine.

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine must take urgent measures to staff the military commissariats with servicemen with the appropriate level of professional training, in particular, on mobilization issues, and to consider increasing the efficiency of military command and control agencies, primarily by completing them with reserve officers.

The Ministry of Defense, in conjunction with the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Social Policy, must ensure the social and psychological rehabilitation of servicemen participating in the antiterrorist operation.

In addition, together with the Ministry of Health, the defense department will improve the procedure for passing a medical examination of those who are conscripted for military service to mobilize for a special period, providing for a mechanism to prevent the unjustified provision of a deferment from conscription for health reasons.

Together with the Security Service and with the participation of the General Prosecutor's Office, the defense department should take measures to prevent violations of Ukrainian legislation during mobilization, including to counter possible corruption manifestations in military commissariats.

"The decree was signed with the aim of ensuring the transition of the national economy to functioning in the conditions of a special period, the mobilization deployment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and other military formations," the press service of the AP explained.

On January 29, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko announced that another wave of mobilization in Ukraine is on schedule: 73 thousand subpoenas have been handed over. For 2015, three waves of mobilization are planned in Ukraine - from January to August. The first began on January 20, it should last three months.

Note that on January 28 in the Russian Federation allowed Ukrainian citizens of conscript age to stay in the country for more than 90 days to disrupt the wave of mobilization in Ukraine.
