Here are a few reasons why wartime deferment can be important:

  • To preserve life and health. In wartime, servicemen risk their lives and health. Postponement of the draft avoids this risk.
  • For continuing education or professional activity. In wartime conditions, education and professional activities may be difficult or even impossible. Postponement from the draft allows you to continue your studies or professional activity.
  • To solve certain family circumstances and issues. In wartime, many men of draft age go abroad or find themselves in a combat zone. The postponement of the draft allows the husband to stay at home and solve family issues (care, maintenance, guardianship, etc.).
