In Ukraine, the eighth of August launched an extraordinary appeal to the army. By order of the President of Petro Poroshenko until August 31 young people of military age (from 20 to 27 years) will be collected at the service. After that conscription will suspend and will resume in October. As noted in the General staff, such recruitment is carried out in connection with shortfalls in the National guard during the may call. The website “Today” found in Ukraine held an extraordinary appeal, how many people will go to the army this month.
In Ukraine for military service are drafted into the army twice a year: in spring and autumn. Just under the call this year was to get about 30 thousand people. More than 14 thousand people called in may-June and about the same call in October-November. However, on the orders of the head of state ‘s call will hold four instead of two times. So, in may, in parallel, held prizes reserve officers, and in August to conduct additional recruitment to the National guard.
This month across the country on the agenda will be send Ukrainians aged 20 to 27 years. Of them will select about 1,000 fighters, which will be sent to serve in the National guard. As noted in the General staff, a full-fledged call the “August campaign” can not be called – it is carried out in the context of reform, and for retrofitting of the national guard.
This month from each region will be taken into the army from 50 to 100 people. For example, in the Lviv region will call for a 53 warrior, and in Dnipropetrovsk – 95.
“It’s certainly not a full-fledged appeal. Was a shortfall and the President of Ukraine adopted a decision on additional appeal. It takes place in normal mode. Nothing supernatural in this. There are even volunteers who are themselves without agendas come and say: that I will soon turn 18 or 20 (with 18 you can now serve) and I want to serve the country”, – told in one of the military offices of the Zaporozhye region.
As noted in the Kharkiv regional state administration, as before, to send to the combat zone recruits will not. “About a month they will be trained in military disciplines.
