 Poroshenko postpones mobilization

President Poroshenko announced his decision to postpone further mobilization - "neither to conduct nor to declare."

Poroshenko said it in his opening speech before the meeting with representatives of the coalition factions in the evening of Sept. 14, Censor.NET reports, citing Ukrainska Pravda.

"I've taken decision, under actual implementation of cease-fire, to postpone mobilization, neither to conduct nor to declare. Today, we can observe first fragile opportunities for this. We have to introduce changes to the budget, including to increase the contract component of our army," Poroshenko said.

As reported, Sept. 5, president Poroshenko said that this was "the first week terrorists have ceased fire and the Minsk agreements have been observed."

"Some soldiers die in road accidents or in other way... but no one dies today as a result of shelling. This week, there is a firm hope that Ukraine's efforts to secure peace will enable us to build a new state," Poroshenko said.

Further on, the president said that a large-scale demobilization have been underway in Ukraine since Sept. 2.
