If a summons was served on the street, what to do?

Reading time: 3 min.

Receiving a summons for military service or military registration can cause anxiety and questions about the next steps. The legislation of Ukraine contains specific requirements for actions in case of receiving a summons on the street.

We would like to emphasize right away that it is better to have the contact of a lawyer or a military lawyer in your phone, so that in case of something you could call him and get advice.

  • Keep calm

First of all, it is important to remain calm and collected in such a situation. Receiving a summons does not automatically mean military service. This is just an invitation to go through the data update procedure and the military medical board.


  • Read the summons carefully

Before responding to the received subpoena, it is important to carefully read all its information. It contains information about the time, date and place where you need to appear for the examination. The information must be entered correctly and match your personal data.

  • Follow the deadlines

The Law of Ukraine "On Military Duty and Military Service" establishes clear deadlines for passing a medical examination and a military commission after receiving a summons. It is necessary to comply with these terms, otherwise sanctions in the form of a fine may be applied, because this will be qualified as an administrative offense.

  • Consult a specialist

If you have any questions or concerns about a subpoena you have received, it is recommended that you contact a qualified military lawyer or human rights organization. They will provide the necessary advice on your rights and obligations in this situation.

  • Obey the law

The most important thing is to comply with the law of Ukraine. According to the current legislation, citizens have certain rights and obligations in relation to conscription for military service or military registration. These rights and obligations are defined by law, so they should be fulfilled.

Getting a street summons can be a stressful moment, but it's important to remember that it's only a legal procedure. By complying with the requirements of the law and turning to specialists for advice, you can find the optimal solution for your further actions in this situation.

  • Check the validity of the subpoena

Before responding to a received subpoena, it is important to verify its authenticity. The summons must contain information about the sender, destination and contact details for additional communication.

  • Follow the instructions on the subpoena

The subpoena usually contains clear instructions on what to do next. Follow these instructions as they are official military service requirements.


  • Keep a copy of the summons

It is recommended that you keep a copy of the subpoena you receive for your own records. This may be useful in the future to resolve any disputes.
