The Ukrainian parliament will consider imposing fines on male draft-age citizens returning from abroad, as outlined in a corresponding bill tabled in September 2022.
If the corresponding bill No. 8029 is approved, Ukrainian men remaining abroad who left after Feb. 24, 2022, will need to pay 25,890 hryvnias ($710) for each month spent outside Ukraine, once they return to the country.
While voluntary fine payment is suggested, non-compliance means entry is only possible upon payment. This rule primarily affects those who can’t prove deferment from mobilization.
During the state of war, all men aged 18 to 60 are considered conscripts and can be mobilized if a military medical commission deems them fit for service.
Conscripts and active military personnel are generally not allowed to leave Ukraine during a state of war, with a handful of exceptions outlined by the law.
