739 recruits have dodged the army in the Zaporozhye oblast
This year military commissariats (recruiting commissions) of the Zaporozhye oblast directed 3900 recruits for serving in the armed forces of Ukraine. At the same time, 739 recruits dodged their constitutional duty. This information was made public by general-major Evhen Gorbyliov at the sitting devoted to the results of the recruiting campaign of 1999.
General Gorbyliov also said that among recruits of this year 965 did not finish the secondary school, which is about three times more than in 1994. Petro Zubkov, the prosecutor of the Zaporozhye oblast said that such a large number of dodgers from the army appeared by guilt of recruiting commissions, which had not informed in time the Ministry of Armed Forces and the prosecutors office. He said that the prosecutors office has now reliable documents only on 15 persons. Four of them have already been called to account.
