General mobilization and martial law, which were introduced due to Russian military aggression, continue in Ukraine. Men liable for military service from 18 to 60 years of age who receive summons are subject to conscription. Recently, the Verkhovna Rada adopted the bill on mobilization in the first reading.

People's Deputy, Secretary of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on National Security and Intelligence Roman Kostenko told Ukrinform when the vote for the document will take place.

According to Kostenko, the speed of voting for the mobilization bill will depend on how many amendments to it the parliament will consider.

“There are several options: first, if everyone removes their edits and it is voted on as the committee submits, which is unlikely. And it could be early next month. Another option is that they will make amendments that are most relevant to the bill, and this will take longer, it may reach the middle of the month. And the long-term option is for everyone to make all their own edits, and this may take a long time,” he said.

The Secretary of the Committee on National Security and Intelligence noted that the practice of introducing a large number of amendments to bills was used by various political forces so that “they could be heard”.

" And the other thing is that the deputies are trying to make themselves heard. Because this is a government bill, they submitted it, and now we see some kind of attitude towards people’s deputies.

So they try to communicate like this, because otherwise the authorities don’t want to communicate with people’s deputies, and in this way they take important things, including for the authorities, and try to communicate. And here the question will arise: what compromises are the authorities ready to make,” he explained.

Kostenko added that mobilization is taking place as usual, but it is necessary to create motivation for citizens so that they join the army voluntarily.

Earlier, lawyer Galina Tokmach explained whether they can hire someone without a military ID and what to do if it is confiscated.
