Volodymyr Zelensky signed the law on mobilization

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has signed a law on tougher mobilization. It will come into force in a month. The signed document was published on the website of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.

The law on mobilization in Ukraine, in particular, introduces, instead of compulsory service, basic military service for five months in peacetime and three months in wartime. Ukrainians under the age of 24 will be able to choose the year and period of basic service.

The law also provides for the introduction of basic general military training, which from 2025 will be part of higher education – compulsory for males and voluntary for females.

Those who received disability groups II-III after February 24, 2022 (except for military personnel) must undergo a second medical examination to determine fitness for service.

Evaders will be restricted in driving license. Also from now on, during the check of documents, the police officer will make photo and video recording of the process.
