In the village of Kulich, Odessa region, locals rebelled against mobilization and expelled military officials from the village.

According to local residents, they learned in advance, that 240 army summons are coming to the village, and in a few minutes about 500 people gathered in the center. Six representatives from the military showed up to give out the mobilization papers, but were not met with understanding from the local population, writes the newspaper “Timer”.

In response to the statement that refusal from mobilization shall be punished by law, the people began to shout “No to war!” and “We are for peace!”, recalling that the country has not yet declared a martial law, and that the Minsk agreements have not been canceled. In this regard, the people refused to accept the summons, called the new wave of mobilization illegal and forcible, and kicked out of the military reps from their village.

People wrote an official address to the local authorities, calling mobilization illegal. They declared that they refuse to join the army, and any attempt to pick up their loved ones by force will be sabotaged by the entire village.

Update: According to social media this a Bulgarian village, please watch the video of the protest: “Let Yatsenyuk and Poroshenko fight in the first rows”
