Moscow, May 5 – Ukraine’s Cabinet has approved a bill to lower the minimum age for conscripts for military registration from 27 to 25, which will allow more citizens to take part in military service during mobilization, Taras Melnychuk, the government’s representative in the Verkhovna Rada, said Friday on his Telegram channel.
Earlier, the Verkhovna Rada extended martial law and general mobilization until August 18. As indicated earlier in the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, during martial law, conscription for military service does not take place. During its operation, a situation arises when a large number of citizens eligible for military service who do not have the status of servicemen cannot be recruited into military service by conscription during mobilization.
The “Bill” of amendments to the Law of Ukraine “On Conscription and Military Service” was approved. The bill provides for changes aimed at lowering the minimum age for citizens to be in military registration for conscripts from 27 to 25 years, ”Melnichuk wrote on his Telegram channel.
Now deputies of the Verkhovna Rada will have to consider adopting the bill.
