Many Ukrainians talked about sending subpoenas in a mobile messenger. Officials reassure and say that only notifications about court hearings come in SMS format.
It is not planned to distribute subpoenas to those liable for military service through the Diya app. Mstyslav Banik, Head of Electronic Services Development at the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine, spoke about this in an interview with Telegraph.
The political position of the authorities, according to him, is not to introduce this measure. Ukrainians receive notices of court hearings in Dії, but these are just informational messages, he stressed.
“Like the SMS that comes to you about the date of the court hearing, etc. And these notifications can be turned off at will. There is no question of subpoenas at all,” the head continued.
Journalists noticed that many Ukrainians were talking about sending subpoenas in the mobile messenger Viber. Banik replied that the summons were to the courts, and not to the military registration and enlistment offices.
“As far as I know, they are talking about subpoenas. As for Viber, they helped us promote the Diy and Ministry of Digital channels. When we had Thousand for Vaccination, COVID-certificates, Viber provided us with free mailings to millions of users,” he remarked.
Banik emphasized that the risks of using Viber are minimal, since the messenger belongs to the Japanese, not the Russians.
Recall that Ukrainian military commissars can be given body cameras to fix the delivery of subpoenas. Such a measure was proposed after cases of forced delivery of subpoenas in public places.
Focus on January 22 wrote how five military men severely detained a man during the delivery of the summons. The Odessa Regional Military Commissariat considered the behavior of workers “incorrect”.
Reserve Colonel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Roman Svitan proposed to mobilize Ukrainians aged 18 to 27 years. According to him, “the very color and drive” has completely dropped out of the military process.
