mobilize even women

russia is conducting covert mobilization in the temporarily occupied Ukrainian territories, and even women are planned to be drafted into the russian armed forces, Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights Liudmyla Denisova said.

“In particular, such measures began in the temporarily occupied Crimea, where many citizens during the conscription refuse to fight against the Ukrainian army and surrender to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. All men under the age of 60 who are registered in the city of Saki and Saki district, from 16 to 20 May 2022 are called to the military registration and enlistment office.

In turn, as part of the mobilization, the occupiers informed the management of the ORLO [temporarily uncontrolled districts of Luhansk region] that it was necessary to “verify the data” of women aged 18 to 45 who have the following specialties: accountant, cook, nurse, laboratory assistant, driver, cleaner.

Forced mobilization is prohibited by international humanitarian law, Article 51 IV of the Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War.

I appeal to the UN Commission for Investigation Human Rights Violations during russia’s military invasion of Ukraine to take into account this fact of russia’s human rights violations in Ukraine,” according to the statement.
