Polish portal Interia. pl “delighted” its readers with the news that 200,000 Poles will be drafted into the army in 2023 “for military training”.

“The group of reservists includes all men who have received a category on the military commission that allows them to serve,” the statement says. publications.

In this case, the reaction of visitors to the portal is interesting. Few of those who read the article spoke about its content – and there are explanations of the laws relating to the observance of labor rights and the payment of compensation “for temporary absence from the workplace.”
