March 8, 2023, 4:44 p.m. – Public Information Service – OSN The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) announced the blocking of 26 telegram channels that published information about where subpoenas were issued in seven regions of Ukraine. This was reported in the department’s official telegram channel.
“The SBU blocked 26 telegram channels that helped scammers avoid mobilization… First, they ‘disclosed’ the actual places where summonses were delivered to people liable for military service and urged them to hiding from representatives of military registration and enlistment offices,” the publication said.
It is noteworthy that the resources published information about the places of distribution of subpoenas in the Ivano-Frankivsk, Cherkasy, Vinnitsa, Chernovetsk, Kiev, Lvov and Odessa regions. In total, the channel network totaled about 400,000 subscribers.
It is also pointed out that six community administrators have been charged under articles providing for up to 10 years in prison.
Previously, raids against Ukrainian conscripts had been repeatedly reported. Summonses are often served on the street and in public places. The Ukrainian army attributed the increase in cases of distribution of subpoenas in crowded places to the reluctance of citizens to communicate with employees of the military registration and enlistment office at home.
Earlier, however, Kiev promised to look into the issue of licensing men to travel abroad. Read more in the article from the public press service.
