It should be noted that on the 30th of May the Minister of defense of Ukraine Stepan Poltorak has signed a decree on conscription for military service of reserve officers, who graduated from military departments of higher educational institutions of Ukraine and received primary officer rank.

Persons under the age of 43 years, passed a full course of military training on program of preparation of reserve officers, who graduated from military departments, have the highest education not below a bachelor’s degree and which have the primary officer rank may be called to urgent the officer’s service.

“In accordance with the order of the Ministry of defense of Ukraine No. 170 the term of military service at the call for those officers is 18 months,” said Artur Artemenko during the briefing.
