Can they be mobilized up to the age of 25 if they have not served?

Reading time: 3 min.

The issue of mobilization today is more relevant than ever. After all, the general mobilization in the country takes about one and a half years. In this connection, people, and especially men of different age groups, are concerned about whether they can be mobilized. In particular, it concerns persons under the age of 25 who have not previously completed military service.

The status of a person under 25 years of age

Regarding this issue, it is worth noting that men aged 18 to 25 who have not previously completed military service and do not have a military department are considered conscripts, that is, those who can be called up for military service.

The Law of Ukraine "On Mobilization Training and Mobilization" indicates that men who are conscripted can be mobilized. Therefore, it is quite logical that a person who has the status of conscript is not conscripted, and therefore cannot be mobilized. But this category of persons can be mobilized only with their voluntary consent.

Can a person under the age of 25 be served with a summons?

Yes, they can. The law does not limit the categories of men who cannot be served with subpoenas, but this is done in order to clarify military registration data. Delivery of a summons to a person under the age of 25 who has not previously completed military service does not mean his mobilization. Although in practice you can find cases that such men are still mobilized.

The difference between the status of conscript and conscript

The main difference in these statuses is that up to the age of 25, a person who has not completed military service is registered as a conscript. After completing military service, such a person is removed from the list of conscripts and transferred to the list of conscripts. Staying on two accounts at the same time is not allowed. Until recently, the conscription age was up to 27 years, but in connection with changes in legislation, it was reduced to 25 years.

Therefore, according to the general rule and current legislation, it is not possible to mobilize a person under the age of 25 who has not previously completed military service. If such cases occur, then this is a violation of the legislation on military accounting. In some cases, they can be appealed in the manner established by law.
