The bill on mobilization in Ukraine will be amended and only then put to a vote by the Verkhovna Rada.
As RBC-Ukraine reports, this was stated by Advisor to the Head of the Presidential Office Mikhail Podolyak during a telethon.
According to Podolyak, despite the scandal that has arisen around the bill, it will be resolved taking into account the “correct regulatory positions.”
“Will it (the bill – ed.) be in this form? No, of course, that’s why a specific bill is being introduced – for discussion. After everything is taken into account, the appropriate changes are made, we will get a more or less optimal bill, which takes into account that we have a long, large-scale, intense war, and the Russian Federation will not stop there, it will press until it loses this war. I like that in a democratic society all this is discussed,” he said.
Podolyak believes that the law on mobilization, which is currently used in Ukraine, “does not correspond to current realities.” That is why it needs improvement.
“The bill will be discussed and settled so that there are corresponding correct normative positions. After this, of course, parliament will vote in the first and second readings, and we will have a new law on mobilization,” he emphasized.
Let us remind you that on Monday, December 25, the Cabinet of Ministers submitted a bill to the Verkhovna Rada, which proposes to introduce a number of changes to the mobilization process.
In particular, the document provides for significant restrictions for draft dodgers – they want to be prohibited from disposing of their own and acquiring new movable and immovable property and more.
Previously, Ombudsman Dmitry Lubinets stated that such initiatives contradict the Constitution.
