From October 1, "nothing will change" for women liable for military service with medical education. Women with medical education must register for military service by the end of 2026.
This was stated on the air of the telethon "United News" by the Minister of Health Viktor Liashko.
"Since independence, medical professions for women and pharmaceutical education for women have been subject to the list of specialties that were included in military registration and which was approved by the order of the head of the Ministry of Defense. Therefore, there are no changes, except for those made by the Verkhovna Rada by amending the law on military registration," Liashko explained.
According to him, medical professions "have already been singled out directly in the law, noting that women with medical and pharmaceutical education are subject to military registration, as well as other specialties that are defined in the list approved by the order of the Ministry of Defense."
Liashko noted that the government had adopted a resolution stipulating that from October 1, 2023, women with medical and pharmaceutical education should be registered in recruitment centers by the end of 2026. In addition, the minister explained, the resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers, which regulates the issue of crossing the state border, has not yet been amended to women with medical and pharmaceutical education.
"Restrictions on women with medical or pharmaceutical education can be applied only when such women hold public office, in central executive bodies or are people's deputies or deputies of local councils. It is then, as for all other civil servants, that women doctors may be subject to restrictions on crossing the state border. There are no other changes and there are no plans," the minister said.
Last year, the parliament amended Article 1 of the law on mobilization training and provided that women with medical or pharmaceutical education should be required for mandatory military registration. From October 1, 2023, such women must appear at the TCC and undergo all the necessary procedures.
