"Demobilization of the sixth wave. By decision of commanders, the best soldiers and those who have family reasons will be dismissed first," he tweeted on Wednesday.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on September 26 signed a decree on demobilization of servicemen conscripted during the sixth draft wave.

According to Poroshenko, as soon as the last soldier of the "sixth wave" is demobilized, only contract servicemen will remain at the front line in Donbas, eastern Ukraine.
