KIEV, January 30 /TASS/. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has ordered the cabinet of ministers to regulate foreign travel rules for men of conscription age, the presidential press service said on Friday.
"The president ordered the cabinet of ministers to regulate the order of travelling abroad for men of conscription age," the press service said adding the government would also consider the rules of discharging the military from the army for the period of mobilization in order to ensure the personnel’s rotation.
The document suggests the creation of a doctrine of social protection and rehabilitation of people who were hurt while fulfilling their military duties.
Ukraine’s Prosecutor General’s Office has introduced stricter punishment for violating Ukraine’s mobilization laws, including corruption at military commissariats.
Ukrainian Army General Staff has ordered military commissariats to draw up lists of draft dodgers and hand them over to police who will search for those unwilling to serve in the army.
On January 20, Ukraine began a fourth wave of mobilization since the beginning of the operation in Donbas. This time, about 104,000 men aged 20 to 60 are to be mobilized. Ukrainian General Staff spokesman Oleg Boiko acknowledged great problems with mobilization saying conscripts ignore draft cards, and men of military age are leaving for Russia and other countries neighbouring Ukraine.
Russia’s Federal Migration Service extended the period of sojourn in Russia for Ukrainian citizens of recruitment age for more than 90 days. According to the service’s statistics, more than 2.430 million Ukrainian citizens are currently staying in Russia, of whom 1.172 million are men of recruitment age. Plans to extend the term of sojourn for Ukrainian citizens, especially for men of military age, were announced by Russian President Vladimir Putin on January 26.
On Thursday, chief of the Ukrainian armed forces General Staff Viktor Muzhenko declared that servicemen will be getting 1,000 hryvnias (about $63) for one day in action in the zone of military operations in the south-east. Bonuses have been promised for the destruction of Donetsk and Luhansk militias’ hardware. For one destroyed motor vehicle Ukrainian troops are promised 10 minimum wages (an equivalent of $756); for one tank, $3,000; for one GRAD multiple rocket launcher, $3,780; and for one combat plane, $7,623.
