Today, April 1, boards, responsible for ensuring military call-up of Ukrainian citizens to the Armed Forces and other military formations within the campaign "Spring 2013", start their work, the Defense Ministry press service informs.

According to the press service, the male citizens of Ukraine born in 1988-1995will be called up for military service in April-May 2013.

In general, it is planned to call up 13 thousand 900 people, including 7 thousand 500 people – to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, 5 thousand 200 people – to the Interior Ministry troops of Ukraine, 1 thousand 200 people - to the State Special Transport Service.

The recruiting campaign "Spring - 2013" will be conducted by 24 regional, Kyiv city and Crimea Republican army conscription commissions.

Activities related to conscription for military service will be financed as provided for by the state budget of Ukraine.

The significant reduction in number of recruits is reasoned by gradual transition of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to professional army based on contract principle. In particular, there will be no call up to the highly mobile airborne troops and naval forces of Ukraine, which are almost fully staffed by contract soldiers.
