Previously, the wife/husband of the conscript had a disability, or one of the parents of both the conscript himself and his wife/husband were with disabilities of group I or II, it gave the right to register a deferral from mobilization. According to the new norm, only those who do not have other able -bodied people who can care for a person with disabilities will now receive a deferral.
According to Oleg Leontiev, a lawyer in the sphere of military law, deputies expand the base of the military, but do so by reducing existing rights. Thus, the adopted edition is in conflict with another rule of law, which gives the right to defer: if it is necessary to carry out constant care of a sick wife/husband, child or parents. "In practice, a new norm will create big problems. If a family has a person with disabilities, it does not mean that they need to be given constant care.
Yes, someone is referred to in the certificates and documents, but not everyone. As In this case, it is more to apply this norm? The lawyer clarifies: earlier the conscript, whose parents had disabilities and needed constant care, but were in the occupied territory, still received a deferral from mobilization. Now a person will have to choose: either in some unthinkable ways to get to parents who, for one reason or another, cannot leave or be called into the army.
This, according to Leontiev, violates the rights of citizens guaranteed by the law on mobilization and the constitution. They also started reporting that the shopping center was sending letters to Ukrainian universities addressed to teachers with a request to appear for the passage of the Military Medical Commission. According to Leontiev, this was made possible by the fact that the draft law No.
7352, which provides a deferral for teachers and researchers, was approved by the Verkhovna Rada, was not signed by the President of Ukraine. "On the one hand, there is a norm according to which teachers with a scientific degree can be calculated on delay, but given that in fact the law has not yet entered into force, teachers and researchers can be called by both teachers and researchers," the lawyer says.
Another equally important law is expected to sign the President, which gives the right to withdraw from military registration of those servicemen whose relatives were killed or missing during hostilities. Focus interlocutor explains that earlier such Ukrainians were given a deferral, but often they could still be called. The Council proposed to fully release this category of persons from the conscription and voted for supporting the amendments to the Law on Mobilization.
But on May 8, 2023, the document was still on the President, and therefore did not come into force. Given the reduction of the possibility of delay, reducing the conscript age from 27 to 25 years, as well as the issuance of summons to educators, in the country everything goes to the war every Ukrainian will be drafted into the war, the lawyer emphasizes.
