He wanted to pay off the mobilization … and got on the action

In the Vinnytsia region, a citizen gave a $ 2,000 bribe to the military registration and enlistment office to “cut off” from mobilization and received a 68,000-hryvnia fine and a summons to the army as a “bonus.”

This was reported by the Specialized Prosecutor’s Office of the Central Region.

“At a time when Ukrainians are queuing at military enlistment offices, seeking to defend our land from the Russian aggressor, there are those who are trying at all costs to” redeem themselves “from defending the homeland,” the statement said.

In particular, at the end of March 2022, a citizen to be mobilized provided a bribe of $ 2,000 to an official of the district territorial recruitment center for evading conscription during mobilization. On June 15, the Sharhorod District Court of Vinnytsia Oblast found the bribe-giver guilty of committing a criminal offense under Part 1 of Art. 369 of the Criminal Code and sentenced him to the maximum fine – 68 thousand UAH. A $ 2,000 bribe was confiscated from the state court.

As a bonus, the convict was also handed a summons to the district territorial center of recruitment and social support in order to resolve the issue of his call-up for military service for mobilization.

    Yes, even Ukraine has such cowardly individuals who try to bribe their way out of serving. This guy’s efforts backfired badly, despite $2000 being a lot of money to turn down for the recruitment official.

    I’ve heard other stories in Ukraine, too, regarding bribes. But, in those, the individuals try to bribe their way INTO the military!

    • I was walking the dog last night, and come across a car with a Ukrainian flag on it. Outside of the car, 2 young guys were talking on their phones, in Russian. My first thought was, why the fuck are you 2 young kids here enjoying life in the Netherlands, while your home country is being destroyed?

      • I’ve heard numerous times already, since the start of the war until now, that the Ukraine military have far more volunteers than they have equipment for or the capacity to train them.

        • I read somewhere that they are up to 1m soldiers, with the potential to double.
          That’s what they need. RuZZia will pose a terrible threat for the foreseeable future.
          Boris and his advisors seem to have resigned themselves to a long haul. Hence the commitment to train 10,000 Ukrainian soldiers every 120 days indefinitely.
          That will enable them to transition totally to Nato kit, as long as its supplied to them in massive numbers.
          No mention of the RAF though. Why not simultaneously train Ukraine’s elite pilots to fly Typhoons?

    Not sure I could trust a guy like this to protect my back from orcs. Maybe the best place for this bastard would be in prison.
