Ukraine Starts Demobilisation of Troops from Combat Zone
Ukraine has launched the demobilisation of troops summoned for active duty since 17 March 2014 over the conflict with pro-Russian rebels in the country’s eastern regions, Interfax reported on Wednesday.
About 30,000 government troops will be discharged from the combat area starting 18 March.
Some 35,300 servicemen are eligible for the demobilisation now underway in Ukraine, according to the Defence Ministry in Kiev.
"The servicemen will be returning to all regions of the country, approximately 1,000-2,000 men to each," according to the first deputy head of the Ukrainian Presidential Administration Vitaliy Kovalchuk.
Meanwhile, Ukraine’s Defence Minister Stepan Poltorak has said the country’s armed forces will grow to 250,000 men within a month.
Currently, Ukraine’s armed forces havesome 230,000 servicemen and the 250,000-strong target will be achieved through mobilisation, Poltorak said on Wednesday.
Ukraine’s Parliament approved the presidential decree for increasing the size of the army to 250,000 men, including 204,000 military servicemen, two weeks ago.

""There are 320 million Americans and only 120 million of them are income earners taxpayers.
Then you have a shaky society with over 50% divorced, kids raised by stepmother, fathers same sex disgrace, huge amount of LGBT confusion, legalization of drugs tendencies, around 8 million prisoners, huge amount of illiteracy and dropouts, a confusing imperial system of measurements based on king Bush and etc etc etc.""
Joro. All that and still the strongest economy in the world! How do you explain, THAT?
Europe is better at complaining and you seem to be their cheerleader
Btw Bulgaria and the rest of Europe should increase cooperation and trade with Asia. Stop those embarrassing conflicts and improve prosperity.
It's a shame for example to let North America lead you in any way, especially financial!
Look at the US for example, how can they have a bigger and better economy?!?

Europe is better in every way.
Ukraine and Russia should follow the example of Germany.
Make some business and achieve prosperity with peace!
Senseless, senseless, Judas #2 is right, sure............ And "I haven't anywhere seen such big [rats]"---how great is his joy...
Well, rats...Similis simili gaudet /Like takes pleasure in like/ ;)
BTW, when speaking of Poroshenko who "can live without war": if he "can" then why
he launched the war against the "own people", why he was killing the "own people", why
he concentrates, right now, the fresh military units along the demarcation line between
Ukraine and Donbass?.....Why Mr."Warfou-le-fou" doesn't allows himself to precede
his texting with thinking. Why?
Because Vivere est cogitare /To live is to think/ has nothing in common with him.
Rurik/Sasha's quote is senseless, as usual. Poroshenko can live without war, it is Putin who can't. Ancient Romans said: "is fecit cui prodest" meaning actually: the one is to blame, who makes profit. And the profit's name is "Crimea", first anniversary just celebrated in Moscow. Another profit in sight is some place called "Donbas".
BTW, when speaking of rats - I haven't anywhere seen such big ones as those in Moscow.
Well, folks, only rats in Hamilton now! As for the rest: the state "Ukraine" can't exist without war. It is conditio sine qua non
for Poroshenko. Otherwise he will be overthrown either by the Overseas Boss
either by the own people. In a couple of months the weather conditions will improve
and PP will resume hostilities, the last hostilities for him.
This commie slug Zheliazkov should be ashamed for his blatant support of corrupt dictatorships and his pro-Putin propaganda. Well folks, I can tell you here in Hamilton the streets are safe and clean after Zheliazkhov was deported to North Korea and will remain that way!
Well Ukraine is demobilising some men while at the same time mobilisation ikeeps going on. Good news in the short run as it means there will probably be no more fighting in the near future. However when thr new forces get ready in a few months. ?o one knows what may happen.
This is a good news and the right direction in which Europe should be going!
Focus on cooperation, trade and PEACE!
It's the 21 century Europe after all!
Start rebuilding infrastructure and invest in innovation and technology!
Just have a very good look on how the things should be done!
