As it stands, there is no need for mass mobilization in Ukraine, but that could change with further developments on the battlefield, Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov told Ukrainian TV broadcasters on Jan. 5.
“As of today, I don’t see a need for mass mobilization,” said Reznikov.
“But, of course, based on how events develop, the situation at the front can change at any moment.”
The minister noted that Ukraine’s defense forces continue to replenish their units, as orderly mobilization continues since February 2022.
“And we haven’t even 100% tapped the potential that has been introduced there (by the ongoing tiered mobilization),” the minister added.
Martial law and mobilization have both been extended in Ukraine until at least Feb. 19, 2023.
During general mobilization, all male citizens liable for military service aged from 18 to 60 years who can serve and meet the requirements for physical health are subject to conscription.
