Ukraine Draft Question

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Is anyone here familiar with the laws in Ukraine regarding being drafted into the military?  My wife got a phone call from her mother that the military came to their house in the village area and was looking for her brother who is 31 years old.  The brother has all of his mail and registration documents sent to this house but he lives elsewhere.  THe father answered the door and told them they didn't know where her brother was, didn't know when he would be home and they wanted the son to get in contact with the military as they wanted him to complete medical service and he was being drafted.  THe parents have no intention of telling their son this as they dont want him to go to military and they think if he finds out he will go.  

 

My wife obviously doesn't want him to go but is worried he could get into trouble if they find him?  She assumes as the least he wont be able to leave the country.  But again he doesn't know this is taking place.  He has unofficial work so there is no way they will be able to lcoate him.

 

Also, is it possible for one to bribe their way out of this situation?  Seems like there is alot of corruption in Ukraine so Id imagine this could be an option to make it go away.

 

Also, what about the age - their was limited information I could find on the internet and I found something that said its only for males up to 27 years old. However, my wife said with the current situation they are taking people much older.

Also, since 2016 according to the new law,  he should show up at voenkomat within the specified date. Otherwise he can get into trouble. Living elsewhere doesn’t relieve him from going to voenkomat, unless there was a disaster or death of a family member.

This is the story as old as the world. Evading army service has nothing to do with the 'current' situation as those actually involved in military actions are all in contract service, not drafted. They are trained, paid, equipped and protected. And yes, it should result in trouble because it is something not meant to happen, like anywhere in the world, it's breaking the law.

Moreover, I think that this website's policy definitely prohibits calling for or looking to facilitate corrupt practices anywhere.

When you are forced to do something it seems to me it’s more of a “draft” then it is a contract.  A contract is an agreement and there is no mutual agreement in this situation.

 

Furrthermore, she is already had to bury one brother from this “situation” and this is her only sibling left. She doesn’t want to have to go through that again so she will do whatever she has to do. 

 

Thank you very much.

 

Ps - he did already serve 2 years in the military when he was 18

Whatever she chooses to do please note that even offering a bribe is a crime by itself, to say nothing about a complete act of bribe giving (see art.369 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine). To make it clearer, it is a felony with possible jail time of up to 10 years, depending on the situation.
