During six stages of mobilization in Ukraine, 210 thousand people came to perform their duties. More than 93 thousand of Ukrainian soldiers became the participants of the hostilities, stated President Poroshenko in his speech to Ukrainian troops. 108 thousand became the members of anti-terrorist operation. Every six of them joined Ukrainian military forces as a volunteer.
Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk called on Canada and the US to assist the rehabilitation of Ukrainian soldiers, who participated in the anti-terrorist operation in the eastern Ukraine.
“The rehabilitation of those boys, who took part in the hostilities, is a special issue. The country faced the war and lots of boys come back from the ATO area, and the problem of rehabilitation is very actual for them. I have talked to the representatives of Canada and the U.S. and asked them to help with the rehabilitation of those who came back from Donbas,” stated Prime Minister.
