KIEV, May 2. /TASS/. Ukrainian chief military prosecutor’s office says it has evidence some conscripts drafted into the armed forces of late have grave illnesses that rule out their active military service.
"Just two days ago we found out that more than a hundred conscripts had epilepsy," Ukraine’s chief military prosecutor Anatoly Matios said on television.
According to the official the cases of epilepsy in newly-drafted conscripts were registered by army officers shortly after their arrival. Some other draftees had open tuberculosis.
Matios blamed medics responsible for examining conscripts at draft stations of lack of professionalism.
"We have brought to justice 30 military commissars, including four regional ones. This year twenty criminal cases were handed over to courts," he added.
