Despite the fact that the duty to defend the Motherland during martial law is important and honorable, not everyone can objectively cope with it. First of all, the reason concerns the state of human health. The team of the “Prikhodko&Partners” law office is often approached by clients for interpretation of legal norms that touch on the issue of exemption from mobilization in wartime due to the state of health. So, let’s consider in more detail what problems are the reason for not having the right to serve in the army in the current period.
Which groups of diseases are exempted from military duty?
It is worth noting the following groups of diseases, within which separate diagnoses are specified:
- behavioral and mental disorders;
- diseases of the nervous system;
- degenerative pathologies that cause paralysis;
- serious diseases of the organs of sight and hearing;
- diseases of the circulatory, respiratory and genitourinary systems;
- HIV infection;
- oncological diseases;
- viral hepatitis;
- diseases of the digestive system;
- bone diseases.
It is clear that we are not talking about all the diseases included in the listed groups. For example, even if a person is deaf in one ear, they may be considered fit with limitations. And only complete deafness in both ears or Ménière’s disease with pronounced symptoms is a reason for exemption from mobilization. The same can be said about bone diseases. Only obvious and complex deformations can be the reason for being declared unfit for service.
As for diseases of the respiratory organs, here we are also talking about tangible symptoms. For example, a severe form of bronchial asthma makes a person unfit for military service. In the same way, HIV infection is a reason for exemption from mobilization not by itself, but when malignant neoplasms or other parasitic or infectious diseases develop against its background.
