Only 5% of young men of military age will be called up for military service, deputy head of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Ihor Mykolayenko told a briefing, ForUm correspondent reports.

In particular, he said that this autumn 18900 people will be called up for the compulsory military service, including 12500 people in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, 5400 in the Interior Ministry and 1000 in the State Security Service for Transport.

"Compared to the spring draft, during October and November, it will be called up by 2500 people less," he said explaining that this occurs due to the planned reduction of the call in the course of reforming of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the staffing level of contract servicemen.

In turn, the Cabinet will allocate 1.7 million UAH to fund the autumn draft.
