Government says defence capibilities will not be dimished; plans to strengthen professional army
Forty-five thousand troops are returning home from the conflict in eastern Ukraine.
The servicemen were conscripted into the military during the fourth wave of mobilization.
The country's president Petro Poroshenko says the ability of the state to defend itself against Russian-backed separatist forces will not be diminished.
Ukraine is relying on further establishing a professional army. It plans this year to sign up 14,000 new recruits.
