On November 4, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine finally adopted the longed-for Law on the reservation of conscripts during mobilization and martial law with a reduction in the period of preparation for its second reading (Draft Law No. 7687).
Two key innovations requested by the business to organize a transparent reservation procedure are:
- giving the government powers to develop a new reservation procedure. This procedure should include criteria for classifying enterprises as critical;
- allow reservations to be made without mobilization tasks for enterprises that are critically important for the functioning of the economy and ensuring the vital activities of the population.
The document specifies the categories of conscripts that can be reserved during martial law and mobilization. In particular, those conscripts who work at enterprises, institutions and organizations that are critically important for the functioning of the economy and ensuring the vital activities of the population in the special period will be subject to reservation. Business entities will be assigned to such enterprises, institutions and organizations according to the criteria and in the order established by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.
