18:54 20 September Kyiv, Ukraine

The parents of three children were not subject to conscription before, however, if the third child was born at a time when his father was already in the service, it was impossible to leave the army. The new law will correct this injustice.
The corresponding bill was supported by 331 people's deputies, people's deputy Oleksiy Goncharenko reports.

After the adoption of the law, a new reason for exemption from military service during martial law was the presence of three or more minor children in a serviceman.

In addition, the Verkhovna Rada adopted in the first reading a bill expanding the list of institutions and enterprises whose employees are subject to booking, MP Yaroslav Zheleznyak reports.

Booking is possible for those liable for military service working:
  • in state authorities, other state bodies, local self-government bodies, in the case when it is necessary to ensure the functioning of these bodies in a special period;

  • at enterprises, institutions and organizations engaged in the production of goods, works and services for defense purposes to meet the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine;

  • at enterprises, institutions and organizations that are critical for the functioning of the economy and ensuring the livelihoods of the population in a special period.

Such persons liable for military service are not subject to acceptance for service in the military reserve.

The procedure and criteria for booking persons liable for military service for the period of mobilization and wartime are determined by the government.
