Over half of draft-aged men in Ukraine are not qualified for the army because of mental disorders

Over half of draft-aged men in Ukraine are not qualified for the army because of mental or nervous disorders, the press office of Petro Poroshenko Bloc reported today, on March 31.

“According to documents, only 53,000 out of 117,000 people who underwent medical examinations during the mobilization have been recognized as eligible for army service,” the party said in a press release. Olga Bogomolets, head of the Supreme Rada Committee for Healthcare issues, says conscripts with mental disorders accounted for 32% of total. Those with cardiovascular diseases accounted for 31.1%, while the draftees with nervous diseases accounted for 22.7%. Such high level of metal disorders during mobilization “arouses serious concern and requires comprehensive examination and control.”

As EAD reported earlier, Vladislav Seleznyov, Spokesperson for the General Staff of Ukraine’s Armed Forces, said the plan of mobilization that was launched on January 20 has been fulfilled by the three-fourth.

“The mobilization plan has been fulfilled by 76%. Every eighth draftee is a volunteer,” he said. Now Kiev is trying to complete the “first wave” of mobilization till April 20. Later two more waves of mobilization – 60 days each - will be announced.
