Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky signed a law allowing military personnel without special higher education, but who served for 6 months, to receive officer ranks during martial law.
Now citizens who wish to enter military service under a contract can be accepted with the simultaneous assignment of the primary military rank of officers. It is noted that we are talking about sergeants and foremen, as well as reservists who perform military service under contract or by conscription during mobilization.
The document establishes that the military, who were awarded the rank of officer due to their service, but who do not have a special education, must complete a “military training course in the direction corresponding to the profile of the official activity” within six months after the end of martial law in the country.
The law also allows, during martial law, to recruit officers between the ages of 20 and 40.
