Ukraine Orders Men Ages 18 to 60 to Stay Behind and Fight

In a national emergency, all ‘wokeism’ goes out the door and it is the men who are called up for duty.

Ukraine has ordered all men ages 18 to 60 to stay behind and fight Russian troops as women and children seek refuge in Poland.

The New York Post reported:

Fighting-age Ukrainian men have been ordered to stay behind as tens of thousands of civilians flee the country amid intensified fighting.

Ukraine announced late Thursday that men between the ages of 18 and 60 were forbidden from leaving the nation, which has been under martial law since the start of the Russian invasion.

Some of the men were separated from their wives and children as they tried to board trains to flee, while others were stopped at the border.

The Ukrainian authorities “were nice, not rude, but they said that men have a duty to defend the country,” said Erzsebet Kovacs, 50, at a train station.

By Saturday morning, more than 100,000 Ukrainians had crossed into Poland.
