Donetsk, Mar 14 - DAN. The Ukrainian Ministry of Defence decided to hold a snap “mobilisation week” to replenish its brigades personnel on the contact line in Donbass, Donetsk People’s Republic People’s Militia spokesman Daniil Bezsonov said on Thursday citing intelligence reports.

“The Ukrainian Defence Ministry decided to hold an emergency “mobilisation week” because Ukrainian armed formations deployed along the contact line are catastrophically understaffed,” Bezsonov said. “On March 11-15, standby reservists will be called up for training which will last till April 10.”

According to the DPR People’s Militia intelligence, the Ukrainian army command plans to promote military service among the reservists and coerce them into signing long-term contracts. Already at this stage, facts of reservists using bribes to dodge the training have been reported.

The Ukrainian army command uses the assistance of military police and the Interior Ministry to force residents into participation in training and is ready to hold the dodgers criminally liable.*jk*pp
