The servicemen called up to serve for the Ukrainian armed forces during the mobilization campaign declared on July 21, 2014 will be demobilized in July-September 2015, in line with a decree Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko signed on June 12, which is available on the presidential website.
The decree stipulates that the servicemen entitled to demobilization must be transported home and provided with clothing and food.
It was reported earlier that Poroshenko had registered a bill with the Verkhovna Rada on endorsing his decree on the third phase of partial mobilization in Ukraine on July 21, 2014, the Verkhovna Rada endorsed it by 232 votes on July 22, and it came into effect on July 24.
This was the first bill submitted to the Rada by the newly-elected president. The Rada had previously endorsed decrees on partial mobilization submitted by then acting President Oleksandr Turchynov.
On August 21, 2014, Poroshenko adjusted the mobilization process by limiting the circle of reservists subject to it by those who had military specialties. The mobilization lasted 45 days and was completed on September 9; 15 military garrisons and 44 support units were put on alert in the process.
