HOW TO TRANSFER TO ANOTHER MILITARY UNIT?

Reading time: 3 min.

When martial law was introduced in Ukraine and general mobilization was announced, for most people it came as a shock, even if they had a strong desire to defend their homeland. Sometimes a soldier is influenced by problems or factors that make him think about changing his military unit. However, in order for this to become not just an idea, but a reality, care should be taken to comply with all the requirements necessary for such a procedure.

What does it take to change a part?

So, in order for everything to work out, you need:

  • Be related to the part in which you want to serve. Desire alone is not enough, and it is impossible to transfer a serviceman who is not yet expected anywhere. Accordingly, you need to take care to find a part where you are really ready to be hired, confirming with the appropriate document.
  • Have a reason for such a move to be made. For example, there may be family circumstances or a certain health condition that would make you better served elsewhere and possibly in a different position.
  • The good will of the commander of the unit in which you are currently serving. This factor is quite subjective, but it is no less important than the others.
  • Competent legal support of the issue. Sometimes, even if the first 3 factors can be met, the 4th becomes a kind of stumbling block when a soldier does not have the support of a competent lawyer. A person who does not have enough time to study legal issues, due to being busy with the affairs of the service, often lets the situation take its course, abandoning the idea of transferring to a unit where he would be more comfortable.

The lawyers of the Prikhodko&Partners Law Office specialize in various issues from the field of military law, including legal support for the transfer of a serviceman to another unit.

 

How is the translation?

When there are sufficient grounds for a transfer, the transfer process takes into account:

  • certification conclusions;
  • recommendations of direct superiors, in whose subordination is the serviceman;
  • petitions from commanders who, for their part, raise the issue of relocation.

The move happens in this order:

  • if a serviceman is transferred between formations, units or operational commands, then this is carried out on the basis of orders of officials to whom such formations are subordinate;
  • if we are talking about moving between types of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, then the order of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is needed here;
  • if a serviceman is moved between units of different types or branches of the military, then an order is needed from the head of the personnel service of the Ministry of Defense.

Thus, legislators have provided for a clearly regulated procedure within which the transfer takes place. Our lawyers, for their part, will advise you on all relevant issues on this topic and provide competent legal support for this procedure.
