The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) announced the blocking of 26 popular Telegram channels that published information about where subpoenas were issued at the military registration and enlistment office. The administrators of several municipalities have already been raided, the security forces are preparing to charge them.
According to the SBU, the channels urged Ukrainian citizens to hide from military registration and enlistment offices and helped draft evaders avoid mobilization. In total, more than 400,000 Telegram users subscribed to blocked sources.
Channels that have not yet been blocked formally comply with the requirements of the law. According to Ukrainian media, the communities began distributing messages from administrators, in which they insisted that they were not helping scammers. According to the latter, they inform the population where they can obtain a summons so as not to waste time and report to the territorial recruitment centers.
Earlier it became known that some military commissars in Ukraine resort to non-standard livelihoods. Among the methods is the use of religious sects as a “cover” for conscripts who are not eager to go to the front and are willing to pay for the opportunity to stay at home.
