The Ukrainian Parliament may consider the government's bill on mobilization in the first reading on January 11, according to Ukrainian MP Yaroslav Zhelezniak and a source in the National Security Committee.

Zhelezniak has stated that the Committee on National Security, Defense, and Intelligence postponed the consideration of the mobilization bill until tomorrow, January 10.

According to the MP, the committee is likely to recommend the government's bill for approval in the first reading tomorrow, but with its own proposals. These suggestions are to be taken into account for the second reading.

"The bill will be put to a vote in the session hall on January 11 for the first reading," Zhelezniak adds.

Meanwhile, a source in the National Security Committee has informed RBC-Ukraine that the situation currently appears this way.


A few weeks ago, the Cabinet submitted a draft law to the Parliament proposing partial changes to the procedure for mobilization. The document includes limitations for evaders and a reduction of the conscription age to 25 years.

Over the past few days, the Committee on National Security has been reviewing the bill along with the Ministry of Defense and the General Staff of the Armed Forces. Deputy Chairman of the committee, Yehor Cherniev, noted there were several contentious issues in the document, particularly concerning restrictions for evaders.
