There are stories on the network when, for example, a father with many children or a student is taken into service during mobilization in Ukraine. Lawyer Taras Nikyforchuk notes on his YouTube channel that it was at the beginning of the great war, when people joined the army of their own free will.

“They went there following the call of their hearts, wrote a statement. And now they want to leave there and refer to the fact that they have three children, or they mentioned that, it turns out, they studied somewhere in a hospital. Yes, friends, unfortunately, it will not work “, the lawyer says.

Nikyforchuk reminded that there are three simple grounds for dismissal from service:

  • reaching the maximum age (60 years in wartime);
  • if there is a conclusion of the VLK that the person has some sores and, accordingly, he cannot serve in the future;
  • when the court sentenced a person to imprisonment.

Under what family circumstances can you be released from military service

Previously, lawyers explained that grounds for dismissal from military service are provided for in Part 4 of Article 26 of the Law of Ukraine “On Military Duty and Military Service”.

The law states that any disability of the wife or husband, disability of the I or II group of parents of a military serviceman is grounds for dismissal from service.

The military must submit a report to the immediate commander with the specified grounds for dismissal and copies of supporting documents. An important clarification: in order to prove that it is about relatives of the wife or the wife (husband) herself, the marriage must be registered in the RATS.
