The Ukrainian Cabinet of ministers has proposed that the Verkhovna Rada increase the strength of the national armed forces to 250,000 people, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk has said.

"The Ukrainian government is submitting a bill to the parliament on increasing the overall strength of the Ukrainian armed forces. We propose that the Ukrainian armed forces' strength be set at 250,000 people, which implies its increase by 66,000 people," Yatseniuk said in opening a government meeting on Wednesday.
