The term of recruitment for regular military service in 2018 has been increased to 3 months in order to complete the National Guard and the State Border Guard Service. This is announced on September 11 by the press service of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on Facebook, writes Ukrainska Pravda.
“The introduction of changes is primarily due to an increase in the number of recruits for the recruitment of troops (forces) of the National Guard of Ukraine and the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine”, was noted in the department. According to the General Staff, the terms of the appeal were also extended to allocate the load to the conscription and military medical commissions. “Continuing the term of the call will allow the commissions to more qualitatively conduct the study, medical examination, recruitment and appointment of conscripts to military teams,” was added in the department.
As it was reported, on February 15, President Petro Poroshenko signed a decree on the dismissal of regular servicemen, terms for conducting regular prizes and regular appeals of citizens of Ukraine for regular military service in 2018.
