Ukraine’s Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov says 66,224 Ukrainian men have returned to the country from abroad to fight Russia’s invasion.

“That’s how many men returned from abroad at this moment to defend their Country from the horde. These are 12 more combat and motivated brigades! Ukrainians, we are invincible!” tweets Oleksii Reznikov.

Ukraine has banned men aged 18-60 from leaving the country and has also called on foreign volunteers to join the country’s defense forces.
