All conscripted men under the age of 60 should expect a draft summons, Yuriy Maksymiv, head of Kyiv’s center of recruitment and social support, said in an interview with Ukrainian TV network TSN on Oct. 24.

Ukraine is now “at the highest level of mobilization,” he said.

“Legally, mobilization can be either partial or general. A public upsurge may be expected, the kind that we saw at the beginning of the war – people joined the territorial defense (TD) en masse, created units. I know that there were a lot of people with hunting weapons and permits for them, only with devices for shooting rubber bullets – they all joined the TD and other units.”

With the beginning of the full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation into Ukraine, President Zelenskyy declared martial law and a general mobilization. The current regime will last until November 2022, after being extended several times due to Russia’s ongoing full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
