remember, last week we started sixth wave of mobilization. Only the Ukrainian authorities intend in 2015 to call for service in the army of 100-150 thousand People. March 25, the head Petro Poroshenko has signed a decree on increasing the size of the army up to 250 thousand People. Every time call events in Ukraine face a massive failure of young men to serve in the army. Evasion of military service, and among them escape abroad (in Russia was 1, 2 million conscripts Ukrainians), became a mass phenomenon. Kiev authorities responded to the refusal of the inhabitants to fight in the East and increasing penalties under the criminal code for evading service, up to the actual terms of imprisonment. Since mid-April last year, the Kyiv authorities are in the East of Ukraine "special operation" to suppress the protest movement in the Donbass. Refers to a large number of dead and wounded among the civilian population and the destruction of houses and infrastructure. According to the summary data of the UN, the victims of the conflict began more than 6, 4 thousand People.

However, despite the control system of the ceasefire, for the last time period shelling in Eastern Ukraine again became frequent.
