Ukraine plans to change the practice of mobilization in order to maintain combat capability after almost two years of full-scale war with Russia.

This was stated by Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Oleksiy Danilov, The Guardian reports.

According to him, changes in mobilization will be announced this week. These changes will include, among other things, the use of commercial recruiting companies to conduct more targeted mobilizations and reassure conscripts that they will perform roles that match their civilian skills.

"Some people are afraid, afraid of dying, afraid of shooting, but that doesn't mean they can't do other activities. Now we have a new minister with a new approach (we are talking about the head of the Ministry of Defense Rustem Umerov. – Ed.)," Danilov said.

Danilov noted that the army will cooperate with the two largest staffing companies in Ukraine. They will identify people with certain skills who want to help the army, but do not want to go to the front, and dissuade them from trying to evade mobilization.

"Mobilization will become more flexible, those specialties that are needed will be announced, and people will apply for a specific position. For example, welders or locksmiths are needed, and so on," the NSDC secretary explained.

Danilov acknowledged that there is a problem with mobilization, but explained that Russian propaganda exaggerates the scale of the problem: "Russia is trying to heat up this issue by saying that we do not have enough soldiers, that we have problems with mobilization... There are always problems in life, let's not overestimate."

Recall that on Friday, November 24, President Volodymyr Zelensky held a meeting of the Staff of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, where the main topics of discussion were mobilization, demobilization and rotation of the military.
