If you are not registered for military service, what to do?

Reading time: 4 min.

Current legislation provides for a list of persons who are subject to military registration. If you are one of them, but are not registered, you need to be registered. For those who want to better understand this issue and their prospects for mobilization, it is worth seeking professional support from professional lawyers specializing in military law. For the team of Prikhodko & Partners Law Firm, military law is one of the key areas of specialization. Therefore, we offer consulting services, legal support and representation of client interests in court within this area of jurisprudence.

 

Who is subject to military registration?

Some categories of persons are subject to registration on a mandatory basis, while others are subject to voluntary registration. Thus, the first category includes the following persons:

  1. Conscripts, starting from the age of 16 (in the year when they are supposed to reach 17) and up to 25 years;
  2. Persons liable for military service and reservists whose age is not the age limit for being in the reserve;
  3. Women who have received medical or pharmaceutical education.

As for the voluntary nature of military registration, it applies only to women whose specialty is related to the military registration. The list of such specialties was approved by the Order of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine № 313 of October 11, 2021.

What happens if you don't register?

Violations of the legislation governing military registration and mobilization are subject to administrative and even criminal liability. The new legislative changes have increased fines for violating the registration rules. Now they range from 17 to 25.5 thousand hryvnias. Such large sanctions are envisaged for those who do not comply with the relevant legal norms during a special period.

If you are not registered for military service, what to do?

It is also worth noting that the powers of the police in relation to those who violate the rules set forth in Articles 210 and 210-1 of the Code of Ukraine on Administrative Offenses have been significantly expanded. If the representatives of the TCC and JVs ask the police to bring such persons, the police can do so by force.

If a conscript, person liable for military service or a reservist evades military registration after being warned by the head of the MCC or other authorized persons, this leads to legal liability under Part 1 of Article 337 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. That is why you should not violate the legislation governing military registration and mobilization.

Where to start for those who are not registered?

To date, there have been cases of abuse of authority by representatives of the TCC and JVs. Therefore, fearing the risk of military mobilization, people who are liable for military service often avoid interacting with the TCC. However, avoiding it is not an option, as such a strategy will not bring anything but heavy fines. Sooner or later, you will have to register for tax purposes. Therefore, it is worth doing it in time. To avoid these risks, you can seek professional support from lawyers specializing in military law. Our team has such specialists.

 

Prikhodko & Partners Law Firm provides the following services:

  • Consultation. During the consultation, you can find out your perspectives on accounting and mobilization, as well as the algorithm of actions when interacting with representatives of the TCC and JV.
  • Legal support. This applies not only to the representative function within the framework of the necessary contacts with the authorized bodies, but also to physical escort to the TCC, which eliminates the risk of abuse by officials of these centers.
  • Representation in court. If our clients' rights are violated, we have extensive experience in using such legal instruments of influence.
