In particular, a new law on the mobilization of persons liable for military service will come into effect, graduates will have to pass a multi-subject test, and drivers will have to comply with certain updates to the traffic rules.


We will tell you what will change in Ukraine for citizens at the beginning of the new month and what holidays are planned - further in the article. 


New law on mobilization: key requirements for persons liable for military service


Starting from May 18, a new law on mobilization will be in force in Ukraine. It introduces significant changes to the rules of registration and conscription of persons liable for military service during martial law. 


The main innovations include:


- The obligation to always have a military document with you;

- Obligatory updating of data in the TCC or through an electronic cabinet within 60 days from the date of entry into force of the law (registration in the cabinet is not required);

- Restrictions on the right to use vehicles for evaders;

- Men aged 18 to 60 abroad will receive consular services only after updating their data in the MCC (this can be done remotely);

- Deferral from mobilization to care for a person with a disability will be available only to relatives of the first degree of kinship;

- Students will be granted a deferment only if they receive a higher level of education than the existing one; 

50% compensation of the first mortgage payment for those mobilized. An additional UAH 100 thousand will be paid after the first and second years of service.

- Abolition of conscription and introduction of military training in educational institutions and basic military service lasting 5 months in peacetime and 3 months in wartime.

In addition to the law described above, another document will come into force on May 4, which will abolish the status of limited fitness.


Persons with this status will be required to undergo a second medical examination, after which they will be recognized as fit (subcategories are possible depending on their health status) or unfit for service. This should be done within 9 months.

Changes in traffic rules for drivers


Changes to the Traffic Rules for drivers include a new provision on the constant use of running lights or dipped beam while driving outside of settlements at any time of the day or year.
