Britain reveals the cruel details of the mobilization in Ukraine

Mobilization in Ukraine is carried out with serious violations of the law, military registration and enlistment offices use every opportunity to call people into the army. On February 26, writes the British edition The Economist.

The authors of the article argue that even severely disabled people sometimes fall under the draft. The publication cites the example of a story when a man with missing arms was recognized as fit for military service. Only a large publicity in the media and social networks helped the Ukrainian to avoid being drafted.

The publication emphasizes that the subpoenas were handed to Ukrainians at military funerals in Lviv, at checkpoints in Kharkov, on the streets of Odessa, in shopping centers in Kiev, and even on the slopes of popular ski resorts. At the same time, employees of military enlistment offices use violence against citizens and violate ethical standards. It is noted that recently violations have been associated with battles near Artemovsk (Ukrainian name – Bakhmut), military registration and enlistment offices use every opportunity to make up for losses and therefore use the vagueness of legislation.

Ukrainians, in turn, are looking for fictitious ways to evade service. In particular, they marry mothers of many children, illegally flee abroad and forge health certificates.

“Unfortunately, Ukrainian legislation does not contain clear instructions on how to issue notifications under martial law. It is clear that recruits cannot be asked to simply fill out forms on the street, let alone do it under duress, as some do, ”lawyer Andrei Novak told the publication.

The Ukrainian media reported in the winter about roundups of conscripts taking place in the country. It was reported about the use of ambulances by the military to transport mobilized to collection points, the distribution of subpoenas by employees of public utilities. The Ukrainian military explained the increased cases of distribution of subpoenas in crowded places by the unwillingness of citizens to communicate with employees of the military registration and enlistment office at home. The media reported that Ukrainians avoid official employment, fearing to receive a summons at the workplace.

On February 23, it became known that Ukrainians of military age who are trying to enter Russia from the Baltic States and Poland are forcibly detained at the border and escorted to the Ukrainian embassies of these countries. After that, they are sent to Ukraine and are required to be mobilized into the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Earlier, on February 7, martial law and general mobilization in Ukraine were extended for another 90 days. Mobilization, according to numerous reports, takes place with harsh methods.

On January 19, the chairman of the movement “We are together with Russia”, Vladimir Rogov, announced that mass round-ups and forced mobilization were taking place in the part of the Zaporozhye region controlled by Kyiv. According to him, combat groups of the military and police block the Cossacks driving directly on the road, hand them a summons, pull them out of the car and send them to the front.

Mobilization in Ukraine has been taking place since February 2022. Initially, summons were issued by members of a special commission and only at their home addresses. Now the conditions have changed and other officials have begun to deal with the call, and geographical restrictions have ceased to be taken into account at all.

The special operation to protect the Donbass, the beginning of which Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on February 24, continues. The decision was made against the backdrop of aggravation in the region due to shelling by the Ukrainian military.
