KIEV, August 18. /TASS/. Ukraine’s plan to mobilize the sixth wave of troops has been fulfilled at just 50%, the speaker of the country’s Defense Ministry for mobilization, Col. Alexander Pravdivets, said on Tuesday.
The latest mobilization wave began in Ukraine on June 19 and ended on August 17. The General Staff said it was needed due to "a significantly tense situation in the country’s east."
The Defense Ministry earlier said three more waves of partial mobilization could be conducted.
Ukraine’s young men have massively started leaving abroad to dodge the mobilization campaigns. Kiev responded with stiffening penalties for the refusal to serve in the army. Last year, 139 Ukrainians were convicted for draft-dodging.
