The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine has expanded the list of persons who are not subject to conscription as part of the mobilization announced in the country due to the Russian military operation.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky declared martial law and mobilization on February 24— on the same day when Russia launched a special military operation on the territory of the country for “demilitarization and denazification”. The Rada extended these measures until August 23.
The Ukrainian authorities explained that the mobilization would take place in several stages. At the first of them, former servicemen with combat experience who had served in the army under a contract or participated in hostilities in the Donbass were supposed to be drafted into the army. Next in line— military men who served in the military until 2014 or served under a contract. At the third stage, it was planned to call up reserve officers and graduates of military departments of universities, and at the fourth & mdash; all citizens 18 & ndash; 60 years old without health restrictions. Persons liable for military service with disabilities or temporarily unfit for military service due to health reasons are not subject to conscription.
In mid-June, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine reported that hundreds of thousands of citizens had been mobilized since the end of February.
