Poroshenko has a problem. Most tender, young Ukrainians have either fled the country or are already hamburger meat. What to do? Oh, don't pretend you don't know:

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko issued a decree № 274/2015, "On Amendments to the Regulations on the passage of Ukrainian citizens service in the military reserve of the Armed Forces of Ukraine." This was reported on the official website of the President.
According to the decree, the age of conscripted military reservists increased from 40 to 57 years.

Of course, these are reservists, so they won't be asked to die for Petro immediately. Instead, they'll probably be used for Kiev's last valiant stand against mutinous Right Sector battalions.

As every Soviet film lover knows, "Only old men are going to battle."
