“Not decisions without me”: Selenskyj reprimands military leadership for reporting requirements

“Not decisions without me”
Zelenskyj reprimands military leadership for reporting requirements

The Ukrainian military leadership prohibits all conscripts from leaving their reporting district without permission. The excitement is great. Apparently, the decision was made without the knowledge of the President. He doesn’t seem too enthusiastic.

President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has reprimanded the military leadership after severe criticism of the registration requirements for conscripts in Ukraine. At the next meeting of the general staff, the 44-year-old demanded in a video message that the defense minister, chief of staff and army commander-in-chief should report to him in detail. “I promise the people to clarify the matter and further ask the General Staff not to make such decisions without me.” There is “misunderstanding” and “indignation” in society.

Army Commander-in-Chief Valeriy Zalushnyi and the General Staff had previously announced that conscripted Ukrainians would need permission to leave the reporting point. After criticism on social networks, it was added that this was only necessary for leaving the government district. The basis is a legal standard from 1992.

Ukrainian men are conscripted between the ages of 18 and 60 and have not been allowed to leave the country since martial law was imposed. Ukraine was invaded by its neighbor Russia at the end of February. From October, women in certain occupational groups will also be registered for military service.
