First Deputy Minister of Defense of Ukraine Oleksandr Pavlyuk said that an electronic register of those liable for military service was being created to track their movement and reduce the risks of corruption during mobilization. He spoke about this on July 31 on the air of the All-Ukrainian Telethon.
According to him, the work will be completed in a few months.
“Joint work among the ministries has already begun. We are signing joint orders with eight ministries so that our register of reservists, which will be introduced, will work as a state register, where we will see every person liable for military service, his movement and it will be difficult to take any illegal steps,” he explained.
Pavliuk added that the tasks of the authorities remain to reduce the risks of corruption and comply with the law. Until the end of the year, Kyiv plans to replace a third of the leadership of the military registration and enlistment offices with people who have combat experience.
He also stressed that the problem of evasion from mobilization has worsened in the country. This hinders the work of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU), Pavlyuk concluded.
At the end of June, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine expanded the list of persons subject to mobilization. In accordance with the innovations, people whose wife, husband or parents have the first or second disability groups will be able to mobilize, if they still have able-bodied relatives who can support them.
On March 9, 2022, Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky signed a law toughening punishment up to life imprisonment for treason, looting, and sabotage. Prior to this, the article on treason provided for imprisonment for a term of 12 to 15 years with or without confiscation of property.
On February 24, 2022, a martial law regime was introduced in Ukraine, a decree on general mobilization is in force.
