The press service of Defense Ministry of Ukraine informed that as of January 2 it will begin registration of recruits born in 1999.

“From January 2nd to March 30th 2016 only in Kharkov region more than 8 thousand people will be called to report for military registration, to access their fitness for military service, and the state of health”, — says the announcement. 

During registration young men will undergo medical examination, which will determine their eligibility for further military education. Those who do not want to pursue a military career will be accounted for and subsequently called up.

In other words, the Defense Ministry plans to register 17-year-old youths for military service. Kiev needs cannon fodder.
