The General Staff of Ukraine cancels the decision on issuing permits for military conscripts to leave the oblast and sends it for revision.

This was announced on July 6 by the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valeriy Zaluzhnyi after a meeting with President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The updated document will be developed on the basis of changes to the laws of Ukraine, which regulate the movement of people under martial law. Zaluzhnyi noted that the existing legal framework does not take into account the realities of today and does not ensure effective mobilization.

  • On July 5, the General Staff of Ukraine confirmed the information that during the period of martial law they developed the Procedure for granting permits to Ukrainians who are on military registration to travel outside their area of residence. The permit is issued by the Military Commissariat for a period of 30 days to a year, depending on the category of person. The General Staff is still considering the nuances of people who systematically cross administrative borders due to official or personal necessity.
  • President Volodymyr Zelensky reacted to this: he asked not to make such decisions without him and to prepare a report on the need for these certificates.
