Secretary of the Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council Oleksandr Turchynov has said that three waves of mobilization are planned for 2015 - in January, April and June.

"The first wave of mobilization, lasting 90 days, is being planned from January 20. The next wave, which is tentatively expected to begin from April, will last 60 days. And the third wave, also with a duration of 60 days, will begin from June," he said after a council meeting in Kyiv on Saturday.

According to Turchynov, in 2015, everyone who does not want to sign a contract for further service will gradually retire from the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

"At the same time, three waves of mobilization are being planned in 2015, because we cannot leave the army without the military," he said.

According to him, during the three waves of mobilization it will be necessary to provide personnel for the Ukrainian Armed Forces, the National Guard, and the State Border Service.
