Ukraine's Cabinet provides for targeted mobilization for country's post-war reconstruction

This targeted mobilization would function similar to martial mobilization, with selected citizens being obliged to begin a term of service for the Ukrainian state. In addition, the Cabinet of Minister’s plans include:

• the elimination of the effects of hostilities in settlements and territories affected by means of destruction;

• measures to restore critical life support infrastructure;

• identification of settlements and areas where humanitarian mine clearance is required, marking of dangerous areas, mine clearance of territories;

• attracting international assistance to eliminate the effects of hostilities.

Taras Melnychuk, a representative of the Cabinet of Ministers in the Ukrainian parliament, also said that the government had provided for the possibility of attracting workers and volunteers without a relevant professional education to provide social services during a state of emergency or martial law.

He added that the Cabinet had also determined the conditions for awarding compensation to people who provide social services on a non-professional and professional basis in the event of a state of emergency or martial law.

Previously, targeted mobilization could only be carried out to response to emergencies. On March 15, the Ukrainian parliament passed bill No. 7144, which provides for the possibility of calling for a targeted mobilization in the recovery period, after the end of hostilities, to eliminate their effects.

On April 21, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky signed a decree establishing the National Council for the recovery of Ukraine from the effects of war.

Ukraine announced a partial mobilization after the start of the full-scale Russian invasion on Feb. 24. Those who have experience in military service, or have received some level of military training in peacetime, are now being called up.

A full-scale draft, conscripting the majority of able-bodied citizens for national defense, has not been called.
