Ukraine declares total mobilization

Ukraine has announced general mobilization, with Secretary of the National Security Council Andriy Parubiy declaring that the entire country will be put on full combat alert.

The defense ministry is reportedly calling up all its reserve troops who are due to come to enrollment offices on Sunday, March 2.

This comes after Ukraine’s National Security Council announced on Saturday the army must get ready for combat and mounted security around airports, nuclear plants and other strategic facilities. The Ukrainian regime claimed however it was against any forceful solution.

Meanwhile, Kiev has reportedly pleaded with the NATO for help. NATO chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen announced the alliance will hold urgent talks and a NATO-Ukraine Committee session that are set to begin in Brussels on Sunday.
