In the Ivano-Frankivsk region in western Ukraine, a general mobilization was announced. On Friday, June 16, the publication «Western Courier» reported.
The corresponding order was signed on June 13 by the head of the Ivano-Frankivsk city territorial center for recruitment and social support Roman Plytus.
“The document refers to the mobilization of human and transport resources, the rules for changing the place of residence and the mandatory appearance of those liable for military service in the city shopping center within 10 days,” the statement said.
All men liable for military service living in the Ivano-Frankivsk region must arrive at the institution within ten days from the date of publication of the order. For draft evasion, citizens face administrative and criminal liability.
In addition, enterprises and citizens supplying vehicles for the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) and other military formations were ordered to transfer vehicles and equipment on time, in volumes and at the addresses indicated in the summary orders during mobilization.
Earlier, on June 4, it was reported that in the part of the Kherson region controlled by Kyiv, men were taken to the Armed Forces of Ukraine right at the time of receiving humanitarian aid.
On May 26, the publication Strana.ua reported that over the past month, the courts of Ukraine issued about 100 sentences for evading mobilization. It is noted that the courts, as a rule, appoint three years of imprisonment with a probationary period of one or two years as a measure of punishment.
Meanwhile, on May 8, an activist of the Nikolaev underground said that in the city all men were taken indiscriminately and taken to mobilization points.
Martial law in Ukraine has been in effect since February 2022. At the same time, President Volodymyr Zelensky signed a decree on general mobilization. Later, the Verkhovna Rada repeatedly extended its validity. On May 2, she extended martial law and general mobilization for another 90 days, until August 18.
Most men between the ages of 18 and 60 are prohibited from leaving the country.
