Against the background of the serious crisis with Russia, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky announced a partial mobilization of reservists. “We have to operationally fill the army and other military formations,” the head of state said in a video message on Tuesday, and military exercises will be held in the district defense units.
The 44-year-old did not say how many men would be affected. At the same time, a program will be launched to increase the autonomy of the economy. This also includes a reduction in value-added tax on petrol and diesel. He announced a meeting with the 150 most important entrepreneurs and urged all businessmen to stay in the country.
