The existing mobilization plan, put in place at the very beginning of the war, is currently enough to compensate for the casualties Ukrainian forces incur in battle, Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov said in an interview with Baltic news outlet Delfi on April 8.
The minister noted that the mobilization plan, approved by Ukraine’s General Staff in February 2022, hasn’t been completed yet.
“We haven't even completed it yet,” said Reznikov.
“We don’t need to announce a new mobilization.”
Reznikov added that the General Staff is handling compensation for the losses "at a steady pace," and doesn’t have a shortage of recruits at the moment. At the same time, fresh recruits need to be trained first, and the minister thanked Kyiv’s international partners for their aid in that regard.
In the same interview, Reznikov added that according to Ukrainian intelligence, the Kremlin is prepared to sacrifice “millions of people” attempting to achieve its imperial aims.
