KIEV, March 31 /TASS/. Over half of draftees mobilized during the fourth wave of Ukraine’s mobilization campaign are unfit for military service because of mental and nervous disorders, the press service of the Petro Poroshenko Bloc said on Tuesday.
Only 53,000 draftees out of the total number of 117,000 conscripts were found fit for military service.
Olga Bogomolets, the head of the Ukrainian parliament’s Public Health Committee, said 32% of the conscripts suffered from mental disorders; 31.1% - from cardio-vascular diseases; 22.7% - from nervous diseases.
She voiced her concern over such a high level of mental disorders during a mobilization campaign. This fact should be thoroughly checked and taken under control, Bogomolets said.
