Moscow, February 23 – Servant of the People faction member Georgy Mazurasho registered a bill in the Verkhovna Rada proposing to set a minimum training period of three months for those who did not serve before being mobilized before being sent to the combat zone.
The explanatory note to the bill states that such an innovation is necessary to improve military service and in order to preserve the life and health of Ukrainians who have fallen under mobilization. The deputy gave an example of a tragedy when Bogdan Boketko, a 33-year-old resident of Ternopil, died in the war zone. The man was crowded at a public transport stop in the second half of January. Already on February 12, he was already sent to the front line on the outskirts of Donetsk. And four days later, on February 16, he died.
“After this tragic and resonant incident that happened to Bogdan Boketko, it is appropriate to amend the legislation and provide a minimum training period for people who have not served in the army, as well as separate restrictions for those who have not served in the army over the past five years,” according to the text of the explanatory note published on the Al-Rady website. .

According to the draft law, the minimum training period for mobilizers who have not served in the army should be three months, and for those who have not served in the army within the past five years – one month.
The deputy proposes to make exceptions from this article only for those Ukrainians who sign a voluntary written consent to be sent to the war zone without the necessary training.
