KIEV. January 15. /TASS/. Ukraine's parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, has endorsed the presidential decree on mobilization in 2015.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko signed a decree on a new round of mobilization on Wednesday.
Under a decision by the National Security and Defense Council of December 20, 2014, a fourth mobilization wave is beginning on January 20, and two more will be held in April and June. Some categories of reservists will be exempt from mobilization: men with poor health, university and post-graduate students, clerics, parents having three or more children, and those resident in the territories uncontrolled by the Ukrainian authorities.
On January 8, Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak said that in 2015 about 104,000 men may be mobilized, if need be.
Ukrainian General Staff spokesman Volodymyr Talalai said that women aged 25 through 50 might be drafted into the army, if necessary.
