"As a president and commander in chief, I report to the Ukrainian people that from today on, not a single drafted military remains at the front line in the ATO (anti-terrorist operation - ed.) area.

"I have accepted the report by Defense Minister of Ukraine Stepan Poltorak and Chief of the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces Viktor Muzhenko on the accomplishment of the process of transfer of the military to the reserve during the sixth wave of demobilization. Over the two years, the mobilization was critical in defending our state and giving fitting rebuff to the aggressor that attacked our country during the most difficult days in Ukrainian history.

"It's extremely important that the demobilized military, especially those who approved themselves in the Armed Forces, are forming more than 100,000 strong reserve," the president wrote.
