Certificate of postponement of conscription

Reading time: 3 min.

Having all the reasons for issuing a postponement, conscripts still ask questions, and in what way and with what document the postponement should be issued. Almost two years after the war in Ukraine, unfortunately, there is no single approach regarding which document confirms the right of a conscript to deferment. Because of this, there are many abuses by TCCs and joint ventures, because if there is no uniform practice, then everyone does as they see fit.

Some TCCs and joint ventures issue extracts from the protocols of the commission's consideration of deferment, other certificates, some issue a summons to appear before the TCC and JV after a certain period of time (usually 6 months) or enter information about the deferment in the military records of the conscript.

It should be noted that the current legislation does not provide for a separate certificate of deferment.

A certificate of deferment from conscription can be a document that confirms a person's right to deferment from conscription for military service. But since its form and content are not regulated by legislation, it is not realistic to obtain it in practice.

The best confirmation of receiving a deferment is the information contained in the military registration documents (military ticket). This is due to the fact that it will not cause doubts when checking the documents of the TCC and JV, as it can be in the case of presenting a certificate or an extract from the TCC and JV.

 

Information on deferment from conscription must contain the following information:

  • surname, first name, patronymic, date of birth, place of residence of the person who received a deferral;
  • the basis for obtaining a deferral;
  • data entry date;
  • the period of validity of the postponement;
  • signature of the military commissar;
  • seal of the military commissariat.

The validity period of the postponement of the draft is determined by the reason for receiving the postponement. For example, deferment due to family circumstances is granted for a period until the child reaches the age of majority, and deferment due to the state of health is granted for a period until full recovery or until the possibility of military service is lost.
Deferment from conscription is the right of a person to be temporarily exempted from conscription for military service.
