Ukraine: Tougher recruitment, but no right to conscientious objection

Connection e.V. and DFG-VK concerned about draft law

(08.02.2024) Yesterday, the Ukrainian parliament passed a draft amendment to the law on military service in its first reading that will change recruitment practices in the country. Connection e.V. and the German Peace Society – United War Resisters (DFG-VK) opposes this tightening and call on the Ukrainian government and the European Union to ensure the protection of conscientious objectors.
