Poland may be flooded with extradition requests

Poland and other European Union countries may be flooded with Ukrainian requests for the extradition of men who, thanks to bribes, left the country despite being subject to mobilization.

It recently announced that Ukrainian law enforcement agencies will demand the extradition of men of military age who illegally left Ukraine to escape military mobilization. On the order of President Volodymyr Zelensky, all certificates of incapacity for service issued by military medical commissions after February 24, 2022, are to be verified.

"This is an important number for Ukraine because these people could increase the ranks of our armed forces, thereby strengthening our defense and security," noted Fedir Venislavsky of the Ukrainian parliament's national security, defense, and intelligence committee.
