About fifty people, mostly women, gathered near the building of Presidential Administration in the Ukrainian capital. They demand to bring home Ukrainian soldiers, enlisted during the fifth wave of the military draft, 112 Ukraine TV channel reports.

Women say their husbands, sons and brothers have been serving with the army for more than a year now. According to the respective law, by this time, President Poroshenko should have signed the decree on their de-mobilization. But currently, there are no circumstances that would speed it up. A worker of the Presidential Administration approached the demonstrators and they passed him their demands in written form, the channel’s correspondent said.   

In late March 2016, President Poroshenko signed the decree on de-mobilization of the servicemen drafted during the 4th wave of military draft. Since spring 2014, there have been six waves of draft into the army.
