Ukrainian Parliament approves law to strengthen military mobilisation

The Ukrainian Parliament has passed a law to tighten military mobilisation rules, aiming to recruit more troops for the armed forces. The legislation was supported by 283 votes, surpassing the required minimum of 226, reported lawmaker Yaroslav Zheleznyak on Telegram.

The new law requires Ukrainians liable for military services to register at military enlistment offices or electronic cabinets once it comes into effect. Penalties for evaders include a ban on driving vehicles and restrictions on consular services, as per the government-run Ukrinform news agency.

The legislation is awaiting signature from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky before it can officially come into force. This move is a significant step in enhancing the country’s military capabilities and ensuring national security in the face of ongoing challenges and threats.
