Ukraine Investigates Corruption In Medical Exemptions From Military Duty1 min read
Zelenskyy said that bribes of between $3,000 to $15,000 had been paid for medical exemptions from military duty.
“It is necessary to check a significant number of decisions of the military medical commissions on disability and unfitness for military service that were made after February 24,” Zelenskyy said.
In some regions of Ukraine, the number of people removed from the military register due to decisions of the medical commission had “increased tenfold” since Russia’s invasion, he said.
“It is absolutely clear what these decisions are. Corrupt decisions,” the president said.
