While problems with conscription in Ukraine could arise over time, currently the number of people involved in national security and defense is not decreasing, Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) secretary Oleksiy Danilov said in a comment to Ukrainska Pravda on Oct. 31.
He emphasized that at present, the state does not experience anything resembling a “stalling” mobilization.
“As for the draft, the number of people in the security and defense sector is not decreasing in our country,” said Danilov.
“Will there be problems? This question may arise over time. How big they will be and how they may affect various things, we will look at that then.”
In particular, the journalists claimed that recruitment to the Ukrainian army had virtually stopped after Zelenskyy decided to dismiss the heads of district military enlistment offices.
According to the report, older Ukrainians, many of whom have chronic health problems, are being disproportionately drafted into the military.
