Mobilization in Ukraine: Pensioners and people with disabilities can receive summonses

According to lawyer Artem Zaika, people with disabilities can also be drafted into military service, but positions and military specializations are selected for them that correspond to their health status.

Martial law remains in force in Ukraine and a general mobilization has begun. It is becoming increasingly common that TCCs begin to send summonses not only to young citizens, but also to pensioners. Lawyer Artem Zaika spoke about this.

According to him, there are situations when TCC employees summon men despite their disability status, which is confirmed by a pension certificate.

The lawyer added that such citizens must also register with the military registration and enlistment office and undergo the military military examination, which must confirm the man’s unsuitability for military service due to his health condition.

If the military commission recognizes a citizen as conditionally fit for health reasons, he can perform military service during martial law, but not at the front, but, for example, in the rear. People with disabilities can also be required to do military service; They are selected for positions in military specialties appropriate to their health status.

The lawyer noted that people with disabilities must accept a summons and appear in the TCC, and they also do not have the right to refuse to participate in the VLC.

Recall that on September 9, the representative of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine for human rights, Dmitry Lubinets, stated that in Ukraine the category of persons with limited fitness for military service could be eliminated, since many certificates of unfitness for military service are issued for them, which do not have any health reasons Having trouble.

On September 7, Alexander Bosenko, lawyer at JSC Constructive Lawyers, said that for military personnel who are recognized as partially fit for military service, it is important to which branch of the military they are sent, as this determines whether a person with certain Diseases treated will end up on the front lines.
