Theoretically, it is possible to appeal the summons to the draft board during the general mobilization if it was not completely filled out. This writes the German edition of DW.

In their article, journalists cite the story of teacher Yuriy from Khmelnitsky, who has a disability. A man after a full-scale invasion voluntarily appeared at the military registration and enlistment office to go to the front, but they refused to accept him.

After some time, Yuri received a summons by mail. According to him, the purpose of the appearance in the military registration and enlistment office was not indicated in the notice. In addition, the agenda did not specify on what day he should arrive at the recruitment center.

After a while, the teacher with a disability came to the military registration and enlistment office, where the medical commission confirmed his unsuitability for military service.

< p>“They called me, they didn’t directly say why. And I replayed all this in my head, even somewhere the thought crept in: what if you still have to go to serve?, – asked Yuri in a conversation with journalists.

Lawyer Stanislav Boris argues that the summons, which was sent to the teacher from Khmelnitsky, theoretically could be appealed, since it was not completely filled out. The current legislation requires that such a notice indicate exactly where the citizen must appear and for what reason.

Moreover, a subpoena can be served 

  • employees of military registration and enlistment offices,
  • local governments,
  • heads of enterprises and institutions,

while the police or the defense of such no authority.

“If the summons was served by an unauthorized person or does not contain all the necessary details, arguments on this matter can be presented in court in case of administrative or criminal liability”,< /em> – Stanislav Boris explained.
