The spring call for urgent military service has begun in Ukraine again.
A total of 14,135 Ukrainians are to be called upon. Of these, 9,135 people will be drafted into the Armed Forces of Ukraine, 4,200 new recruits will serve in the National Guard of Ukraine, and 800 more will go to the State Special Transport Service. Men aged 20 to 27 will serve, while 18- and 19-year-olds can join the army of their own free will. More truly, they will be called upon, but they will be sent to the service only on their own initiative.
Of course, this is not a mobilization, when men, regardless of age, skills, presence or absence of diseases and bad habits, got into «pockets». But of these 14,000 people, about 10,000 will clearly go to the civil war, from where they may not return.
It should be remembered that from 00:00 on April 1, the ceasefire regime was introduced in Donbass, which residents of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics considered Poroshenko’s April Fools’ joke, since the shelling began literally 10 minutes after the midnight.
In addition, the head of the General Staff, Viktor Muzhenko, wrote in his Twitter that ‘Russia is preparing to activate the military operations in Donbass’. This, say, is conducive to the events of the past two weeks. However, what events and when they occurred, Muzhenko shyly concealed.
