Ukraine: 50,000 Citizens To Be Drafted

Fact checked by The People's Voice Community

With a stroke of his pen the Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko drafts  50,000 “healthy men and women” to the front lines. 

Uatoday.tv reports:

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has issued a decree mobilising 50,000 servicemen to the frontline in eastern Ukraine.

Those eligible will receive notice papers calling them to service as soon as the Ukrainian parliament approves the measure.

The Ministry of Defense plans to draft healthy men and women, preferably with military experience. Tank operators, artillerymen, reconnaissance scouts and messengers aged 25 to 60 are in high demand.

Volodymyr Talalay, Major General: “We are not planning to draft untrained men for positions that require military efficiency. Military leaders are looking for those who have already been in the army or those who can serve within civilian professions.”

Combat trainings for servicemen will take 10-15 days. Ministry of Defense officials say this timeframe is adequate to acquire combat skills and replace those soldiers who will be rotated out.
