According to the representative of the profile committee, Yegor Chernev, the mechanism for sending subpoenas in electronic offices may not work, since not all citizens liable for military service have access to the Internet.
The Verkhovna Rada expresses a desire to receive clarification from the Ministry of Defense regarding the new draft law on mobilization, especially regarding the proposal to send summons through the conscript’s electronic account. This was announced by Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on National Security, Defense and Intelligence Egor Chernev during a telethon.
The parliamentarian explained that not all people have modern gadgets and access to the Internet.
“We have changed the way we receive summonses again, now they are available through the electronic account for those liable for military service. We want to get clarity from the Ministry of Defense regarding this update, given that not all people can or have access to the Internet and smartphones,” the deputy said.
Chernev also emphasized the importance of the issue of the possible need to introduce coercive measures for citizens traveling abroad. He explained that we are talking about possible deprivation of the right to consular services.
“We would like to hear the position of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on this issue. Firstly, are our consular services capable of effectively implementing these measures. Secondly, how effective such actions will be: will people return, or will they be lost forever,” – the official added.
Mobilization in Ukraine – latest news
The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, after revision, submitted to the Verkhovna Rada a new bill No. 10449, concerning mobilization, military registration and military service.
The main innovation of the updated bill is the imposition of restrictions on evaders through the courts. Now the TCC must go to court, which can impose restrictions on the person liable for military service.
In addition, summonses to the military registration and enlistment office are going to be sent via an electronic account.
At the same time, Deputy Chairman of the Committee on National Security Issues Yegor Chernev noted: although the new draft law on mobilization has many correct provisions, a significant number of amendments are expected.
Previously Focus reported that ATO veteran Evgeniy Diky criticized the new mobilization bill because of one point, which he considers unfair.
