President Vladimir Zelensky signed laws on the continuation of general mobilization and martial law in Ukraine.
This is stated in the relevant bills.
In particular, the head of state signed Law No. 10456 on the extension of martial law, as well as Law No. 10457 on the extension of the general mobilization.
Accordingly, both deadlines were extended from February 14, 2024 by 90 days until May 13, 2024.
This was the tenth decision to implement martial law and general mobilization since the beginning of a full-scale war.
Note that martial law in Ukraine was introduced due to the full-scale invasion of Russia, which occurred on February 24, 2022. This is a special legal regime that provides for the provision of government authorities, military command, military administrations and local governments with the powers necessary to prevent the threat.
General mobilization is an operational mechanism for replenishing the ranks of the Armed Forces, which is carried out simultaneously throughout the entire territory of Ukraine.
During this period, all citizens from 18 to 60 years of age (mostly men) who can perform military duty are subject to mobilization.
Let us note that on January 30, the government re-introduced to the Verkhovna Rada a bill on mobilization, military registration and military service. The document proposes to change the procedure for its implementation.
The document contains norms on changing the rule for military personnel to travel abroad, on providing “reservation” from conscription for Ukrainians, on permission to send summonses through an electronic account, on reducing the conscription age to 25 years, on restrictions for evaders, and more.
