The new draft law contains a provision on the mobilization of young men from the age of 18: the MP explained the scheme. Video

Dmytro Razumkov reveals details of the law on mobilization

The new draft law contains a provision on mobilization of young men from the age of 18. If the document is approved in the current version, this provision could become a big problem.

This was stated by MP Dmytro Razumkov in a comment to Novyny.LIVE. He explained the "scheme" under which young people who are still considered teenagers in civilized countries can get to the front.

"There is a provision that will actually allow people to be mobilized from the age of 18. I will talk about this at the committee, but this is a big problem. Because it says that if a person undergoes basic military training before the age of 18, he or she will receive a military specialty, be registered in the military, and this will lead to the fact that the Military Commissariat will be able to mobilize him or her at the age of 19," Razumkov explained.

The MP added that the adoption of this rule threatens to destroy the state's gene pool. He emphasized that he wants to hear the position of the Ministry of Defense on this issue.

It should be noted that in countries such as Switzerland, Japan, and Taiwan, the age of majority is 20, while in the UK, some US states, and Turkey, for example, the age of majority is 21. In Ukraine, people from the age of 18 are considered adults.

The Verkhovna Rada Committee on National Security, Defense, and Intelligence commented on Razumkov's statement about mobilization from the age of 19. Committee member Iryna Friz said that they are currently working on this provision.

According to her, the draft law on mobilization, which the Verkhovna Rada adopted in the first reading, contains "a significant number of contradictory and illegal provisions."

"The committee is working to eliminate them. This concerns the excessive powers of the TCC and JVs and the unconstitutional provisions on selective application to certain categories. Therefore, if I say whether the draft law has flaws, then yes. There are many of them, but I hope that the committee will propose a more balanced and professional document to the parliament for the second reading. We are working on this provision (mentioned by Razumkov - Ed.). The final version will be known after it is approved at the next meeting," Friz said in a comment to Suspilne.

She added that this rule should be clearly formulated and not have legal uncertainty that would carry the risk of "different interpretations."

"Basic general military training will be conducted in higher education institutions, that is, for students who have a deferment for the duration of their studies. However, the provision in the draft law is not clearly defined, so it will be edited by the committee to prevent double interpretation," explained Iryna Friz.

As OBOZ.UA previously reported, the Verkhovna Rada Committee on National Security, Defense and Intelligence continues to consider amendments to the draft law on mobilization. MPs may complete this process next week (March 25-31).
