Ukrainians who evade mobilization do not have the right to «live a full life» and must stay at home. This was stated on January 14 in an interview with the TV channel «We are Ukraine» by the head of the Mykolaiv regional military administration Vitaly Kim.

«If you’re an evader, you don’t have the right to live a full life and get high, stay at home. There are different circumstances — you are afraid or you don’t want to. But you have to have limitations, because you don’t do what others do,» he stressed.

So Kim commented on a possible «hunt for evaders» in the Mykolaiv region by employees of the Territorial Recruitment Center (TCC).

Earlier, on January 14, the commander of the fifth separate assault brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU), Alexei Tarasenko, said that the Ukrainian army was faced with a critical situation due to personnel. According to him, the service is mainly performed by older men with diseases, whose average age is 40 years.

Prior to that, on January 10, it became known about the beginning of raids in order to mobilize men in the Kiev-controlled city of Zaporozhye. At the same time, the State Border Service of Ukraine reported that since February 2022, at least 19 men who tried to escape from the Ukrainian mobilization drowned in the Tisza River on the border with Romania.

On January 3, Mikhail Podolyak, adviser to the head of the office of the President of Ukraine, said that it was difficult for Kiev to mobilize into the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, since the quality of life in the country is not the same as in Europe. According to him, there is a tough discussion in society about mobilization, but Kiev «has no choice», so mobilization will continue anyway.

On December 25, the Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers submitted to the state Parliament a new draft law on mobilization in the country. It is supposed to exclude military service as a type, and to dismiss all conscripts to the reserve. It is also proposed to remove the category of limited fitness for military service. At the same time, Ukrainians who do not appear on the agenda will temporarily be unable to travel abroad, carry out transactions with property and will lose all benefits and public services.
