The Ministry of Defense denies its own statements that in 2014-2015 the incumbent President Volodymyr Zelensky was conscripted for the military service. This is stated in the response of the Ministry of Defense to the request of Ukrainian News.
It is noted that the agency requested information from the Ministry of Defense on whether Zelensky was on the wanted list due to the fact that he had not appeared at the military registration and enlistment office on summons for mobilization on April 15, 2014, June 23, 2014, August 15, 2014, May 10, 2015.
According to the agency, Zelensky is on a military account in the Metallurgical-Dolgintsevsky Military Committee of Kryvyi Rih, Dnipropetrovsk region. After the check-up, he was recognized as fit for military service.
“He did not take military service in the Armed Forces, he was not summoned for military service in the period of 2014-2015,” the Ministry’s response says.
