The demobilization of the servicemen of the 6th wave of military draft is completed in Ukraine. Petro Poroshenko accepted the report on the transfer of the army men to the military reserve by the Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak and the Chief of General Staff Victor Muzhenko.

All the conscripts returned home except those who signed the contract for military service. The 6th wave of mobilization began on June 19, 2015 and lasted for three months. 20 000 conscripts were called up for the service in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which is only a half of the then estimated number.
