A Ukrainian journalist, Andrei Tsaplienko, wrote on his social network of the story how an old Ukrainian address of his acquaintance, who has been living in Germany for 20 years, received a letter of conscription from the military commissariat.

“According to paragraph 10 of the article and …”, “it is necessary to appear …”, ” We suggest arriving …”

He added that his friend called the military registration and enlistment office and asked why the Ukraine, for the purposes of war, has no current database of its citizens.

They answered that that they still have him listed, “but we do not know where anyone really is. But now that we know that you are a non-resident, we could delete your name from the database. But does that mean that everyone can call the military commissariat, say that he does not live here anymore thus avoid military service?”

No, you could obtain a working system of residents and non-residents instead.
