Order on dismissal from military service

Reading time: 3 min.

An order of discharge from military service is an official document issued to a serviceman regarding the termination of his service.

What is the algorithm for obtaining an order on dismissal from military service?

The dismissal procedure looks like this:

  • A military serviceman submits a discharge report.
  • The commander of the military unit reviews the report and makes a decision on dismissal.
  • In case of a positive decision, a dismissal order is issued.

A military serviceman has the right to read the dismissal order and receive a copy of it. Usually, the serviceman receives an extract from the order.


The procedure for dismissal from military service is regulated by the Law of Ukraine "On Military Duty and Military Service" and other normative legal acts. It should also be remembered that the grounds and procedure for dismissal from military service during martial law have certain peculiarities. Therefore, some grounds for exemption that are available in peacetime may not be available during martial law.

An important point is that before being discharged, a serviceman must fulfill all combat tasks and other obligations.

Also, after discharge, a serviceman can be mobilized again, if he does not issue a postponement directly at the TCC and SP.

When exactly is the order issued?

If dismissal:
