Over 50,000 citizens have already signed the contract with the Ukrainian army so now there is no reason to declare mobilization in the country.

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said this at the meeting of the Regional Development Council, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"I do not plan to announce the seventh wave of mobilization so far," Poroshenko said.

The President stressed that the government understood that the protection and defense of the state were the most important tasks, but economic growth was also important.

"We have already exceeded the number of 56,000 soldiers, who voluntarily enlisted in the Ukrainian army," Poroshenko noted.
