Quote: "We had an urgent meeting this evening with Rustem Umierov, Ukraine's Defence Minister, to discuss the draft law on mobilisation, which is important for Ukraine.

As a result of the meeting, I came to the conclusion that this draft law should be adopted by the Parliament in the first reading. I am appealing to MPs with this request.  The remarks from the Ombudsman's Office can be resolved before the second reading.  Once again, I would like to note the quick positive response from the Minister of Defence of Ukraine!"

Background:

On 6 February, Lubinets said that the new version of the draft law on mobilisation contained a number of provisions that contradicted the Constitution of Ukraine.
