The Ukrainian parliament today passed a draft law on mobilisation. 283 MPs voted in favour of the bill, as it is seen on social media.

The document was voted on about five minutes after the amendments were agreed upon, which were considered until 2 a.m. today. The bill was adopted in the committee version.

"All 31 amendments received votes for approval. There was no intrigue except for the amendment on demobilisation (there are 227 votes)," said MP Yaroslav Zheleznyak.

MP Iryna Herashchenko wrote that "227 MPs refused the amendment on the possibility of dismissal from military service. 176 Servants, OPFL and 2 Motherland [parties]".

MPs should develop a separate draft law on demobilisation. 

The amendments also removed from the text of the document a large number of sanctions that would have been imposed on the evaders. Yesterday, MP Yuliya Klymenko explained that the document proposed to leave the motivational part for those who will serve under a contract. For example, those who sign their first contract are offered to compensate half of the down payment on a loan and a certificate for UAH 150,000 to buy a car.
