The President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyi, signed bill No. 10313, according to which citizens deemed to be of limited fitness must undergo a second medical examination.

About this it is said on the website of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.

In particular, the document provides for the abolition of the concept of “limited fitness” for service in the ranks of the Defense Forces. Now, men who, according to the conclusions of the VLC, were previously recognized as of limited fitness, must undergo a re-examination within nine months after the law comes into force.

“Those people who received the conclusion of the VLK as “limited fitness” will undergo a review and their fitness for service will be determined. And in the future, the military medical commission will not issue such a conclusion,” Deputy Minister of Defense Nataliya Kalmykova explained earlier.

In the same law, the norms regarding ensuring the rights of military personnel and policemen to social protection are prescribed.

The law enters into force one month from the day following its publication.

We will remind that the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine canceled the status of “limited suitability” on March 21, after which the law was sent for the President’s signature.

As reported by ArmiyaInform, the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyi signed a law reducing the age of mobilization from 27 to 25 years.
