Officers and soldiers who have the necessary specialties are slowly being recruited into the Ukrainian army, said an adviser to the head of the President’s Office.
General mobilization in Ukraine does not make any sense now, since the authorities will not be able to arm those people who will be drafted into the army.
Mobilization continues in our country, people are “pulled out” and “grabbed” by invited volunteers, Aleksey Arestovich, adviser to the head of the Office of President Volodymyr Zelensky, said in an interview with a Ukrainian journalist and founder of the publication “Gordon” – Dmitry Gordon.
According to him, soldiers and officers who have the necessary specialties are slowly getting into our army.
“It (general mobilization 2022 – Ed.) does not make any sense. We will not be able to arm the masses of people whom we have called…”, the interlocutor shared.
Arestovich added that there are a lot of infantrymen in the Ukrainian army, and it is easier to transfer them to serious mechanized units in order to make up for losses than to pull new people.
“… It’s no secret that we have about 700 thousand under arms. The president called this figure. This is all the defense forces. And we have heavy weapons – God forbid, that there are 120 thousand. The rest are infantrymen …”, – the adviser said.
Recall Russian troops carried out a full-scale invasion of Ukraine early in the morning of February 24. Martial law was declared in Ukraine, and mobilization began.
First of all in our country called up former military under the age of 40 who have combat experience.
