KIEV, September 13. /TASS/. Large-scale demobilization is underway in Ukraine, Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko said in an interview with national television channels on Sunday.
"Today, the process of large-scale demobilization is underway in Ukraine," he said.
He said that at his order the defence ministry and the general headquarters on September began the process of demobilization. Concurrently, they are training new personnel.
"It is an absolutely logical position: we have mobilized personnel, now they are being trained at mobilization centres to defend the state. And large-scale demobilization is underway - those mobilized earlier are returning home," he said.
Ukraine has set up a financial reserve that will be used to boost the country’s combat readiness and improve social standards, Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko said in an interview with Ukrainian television channels.
"A corresponding reserve has been set up," he said, adding that it would be used in "priority areas." "First, (it will be used) on security and defence of the state, since the state must emsure protection and defence," Poroshenko said. "Second - social standards.".
