Currently about 40 thousand representatives of the voluntary movement are protecting the territorial integrity of Ukraine in the ATO zone in Donbas. This was announced by the Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak during the presentation of the book about the formation of the volunteer movement in the Interior Ministry, which was broadcast by "112 Ukraine" TV channel.

"One can agree with the fact that today there are almost no mobilized and no regular service soldiers in the ATO zone, there are only those people who decided for themselves that they do not have more important things to do than the country's defense. Today, 40 thousand volunteers, such as those in this room, are protecting our country. Ukraine will be independent, because we have patriotic people, God with us and victory will be ours,” the minister said.
