More than 43,000 service members have concluded contracts for military service with Ukrainian Army since January 2016, Spokesman for the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine Lieutenant Colonel Oleksiy Chernobay has told a briefing, Ukrinform has reported.

"Ukrainian citizens continue to conclude contracts for military service in the Armed Forces of Ukraine. More than 6,000 soldiers and sergeants and 760 officers signed a contract with the Army in July. Thus more than 43,000 persons, including almost 4,600 officers signed contracts with the Armed Forces," said Chernobay.
