Zelensky has signed the new decree as they have lost thousands of soldiers and many military experts have warned that Russia could win the war within “a matter of weeks” or within “six months.

The Polish Defence Minister Wladyslaw Kosiniak-Kamysz has announced that authorities across Poland will help to send those men back to Ukraine.

All Ukrainian embassies and consulates will now no longer offer consular services for those of fighting age, but only “with the exception of applications for registration of identity cards for return to Ukraine.

Kosiniak-Kamysz said, “I think many Poles are outraged when they see young Ukrainian men in hotels and cafes, and they hear how much effort we have to make to help Ukraine.”

Adding, “However, the form of assistance [Poland provides] depends on the Ukrainian side.”

The Polish government has offered authorities in Kyiv that they “will identify” Ukrainian men of fighting age who are living in Poland, there is around 1 million Ukrainians living in across the country.

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said on X these new measures will “restore fair attitudes toward men of conscription age in Ukraine and abroad.”

“How it looks now: a man of conscription age went abroad, showed his state that he does not care about its survival, and then comes and wants to receive services from this state. It does not work this way. Our country is at war.”

Ukraine is facing “almost insurmountable” challenges as Russian forces are growing and are gaining ground.

A former British Army officer has warned that Ukraine has just six months left as Moscow will be able to achieve “significant success” by the summer.

Ukraine will receive £49 billion of military aid later this week after Washington finally approved the plans, which should have been sent last year.

Colonel Richard Kemp said that multi-billion military aid package from the US will simply help to stabilise the frontlines for a while until they run out of ammunition, they will not be able to take back the land captured by Vladimir Putin’s forces.

A US general with more than 37 years in the American military has warned that Ukraine will fall into Putin’s hands within a “matter of weeks.”
