Head of the reserve service department of the mobilization headquarters at the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Colonel Mykhailo Shcherbyna says that another wave of mobilization is not expected in Ukraine, according to an UNIAN correspondent.

"The next wave of mobilization is not expected yet, we have enough soldiers serving under contracts," he said at a briefing in Kyiv on Tuesday.

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 so-called sixth wave is demobilized, only contract servicemen will remain at the front line in Donbas, eastern Ukraine.
