The Armed Forces of Ukraine have sufficient personnel reserves at the moment, meaning there is no current need for additional waves of mobilization across the country, Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov told Ukrainian TV broadcasters on Dec. 6.

“...As of now, there is no issue that requires additional mobilization; we have enough people today in this regard,” said Reznikov.

According to the minister, the Ukrainian military mostly needs weapons. Specifically – armored vehicles, tanks, aircraft, artillery, and munitions.

“Our partners are familiar with our needs, so that our girls and boys can be more successful and effective at the front, as we have already demonstrated,” he added.

General mobilization is underway in Ukraine since Feb. 24, due to Russia’s full-scale invasion. All men liable for military service can receive a mobilization notice, obligating them to report to an enlistment office.
