A Dead Horse Attack: More News for Ukraine.

Oleksiy Fesenko, March 19, 2018 

    According to "Grow to Greatness: Smart Growth for Private Businesses, Part I" by Edward D. Hess (Coursera, 2013) one common mistake of a business is hiring quickly, at the last moment, and firing slow as if you have not seen the mistakes.
    Comparing to Ukraine, this mistake was not recognized even more has been well established in Military as hiring the older generation, and in particular the generation after 50 quickly "until the end of the anti-terrorist campaign
and firing slow violating the requirements of the law of Ukraine by the Parliament of Ukraine  ("On General Military Duty and Military Service", February 18,2018) for the servicemen would be able leaving the army service after the 24 months of services as this law prescribes. However the Military stopped executing this legislation starting from the January 7, 2018, providing no explanations.
    So the older generation is inclined to believe "we are hired fast because Ukraine needed us as 'a dead horse attack', now our employment terms are not defined and were unilaterally extended by the military agencies beyond the legal limit of the 24 months, because we deserved the beating-a-dead-horse terms may not be applied to the aged population: immoral and unethical." 


    The Parliament of Ukraine (February 18,2018). The law of Ukraine #2232-12 "On General Military Duty and Military Service"
    The law of Ukraine #2232-12  (the current  edition effective as of February 18,2018) "On General Military Duty and Military Service" (sub-point і sub-point 1 point  8 article  26 chapter ІV) specifies  the categories of the military servicemen having a contract  who can terminate (cancel) their contract as to the : [...] military servicemen under the contract who shall have the right to  retire from the military  service  as the persons who had signed the individual contractual terms specified as until the end of the Special Period or untill an announcement of a  decision about the demobilization and who had completed not less than 24 months of the military service according to  their contract. 
    The Law of Ukraine #2232-12 was based on the Law of Ukraine #1769-19 (known as the project # 5337) "On Amendments to Some Legislative Acts of Ukraine as to  the Improvement to the Process of the Military Service."  This law specifies that the Military of Ukraine should finally adjust the terms of the law not later than one year after the enforcement date of this Law, or January 7, 2018.
    The third document that specifies the terms is the Employment contract between the Ukrainian Military and the Citizen of Ukraine who undertook to go to the Military. This documents establishes the notice date (usually one or three months depending on the particular contract). 
    So, if the Ukrainian military has the notice date one month and the end of the contract day January 15, 2018, the Ukrainian Military should implement  his/her retirement term effective as of February 15, 2018.
