Approximately 1.6 million Ukrainians have updated their information in line with new mobilization norms effective May 18, with over 1.4 million using the "Reserve+" application, Deputy Minister of Defense Kateryna Chernohorenko reported on June 5.

Starting June 18, a QR code in the "Reserve+" app will serve as an electronic military registration document, eliminating the need to carry paper documents. Relevant officials can verify this QR code through the app.

Although the Ministry of Defense announced that summonses will not be sent through the app for now, conscripts and reservists aged 18-60 must update their contact information by July 16.

After providing their relevant phone number, address, and email, users can then view their current draft status obtained from the electronic register Oberih.

Chernohorenko stated that the Reserve+ application is available in markets in 176 countries.

Ukraine's parliament adopted an updated mobilization law in mid-April in order to ramp up mobilization amid Russia's ongoing war.

Another law, signed by the president just before the mobilization law was passed, lowered the minimum age of compulsory military service from 27 to 25.

Battlefield situation is difficult, but Ukraine ‘has chance’ to change it, Syrskyi says
Russia is continuing to push on the Kurakhove, Pokrovsk, Kupiansk, and Kharkiv sectors, Commander-in-Chief of Ukraine’s Armed Forces Oleksandr Syrskyi said after visiting the eastern front.
