by

Ukraine today began recruiting reservists aged 18-60 after a decree was issued by President Volodymyr Zelensky, the Ukrainian armed forces said in a statement.

Their maximum recruitment time is one year.

It is noted that the Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky, announced last night partial mobilizationcharacteristically stating that it calls for reserves for a specific period of time, while it has ruled out for the time being the possibility of general mobilization, after the communication of Russia that sends military force to eastern Ukraine.

Zelensky said he was still seeking a way out of the crisis through diplomacy, and welcomed Turkey’s intention to participate in multilateral talks, while stressing that Ukraine is not going to cede territory to Russia.

Addressing the Ukrainian people after the cross-party meeting in parliament, President Zelensky also announced a program of “economic patriotism” that includes incentives for domestic production and a reduction in VAT on gasoline.
