Army well-staffed so far, any new call-up to depend on frontline developments - deputy defense minister

The Armed Forces of Ukraine is currently sufficiently stuffed, but in the event of a change in the situation on the front line, an additional mobilization effort may be launched.

Deputy Minister of Defense Hanna Maliar spoke of this on the air of a nationwide telethon, Ukrinform reports.

"In this regard, we heard statements from the General Staff that, as of today, there are enough people who have been mobilized," she said, explaining that everything depends on the situation at the front, so different options are on the table.

"We should all be aware that there is a war going on in the country. We can assume different scenarios of further developments, and we should, in principle, be ready for them all," said Maliar.

As reported, on November 8, President Volodymyr Zelensky submitted to the Verkhovna Rada a draft law on continued martial law and mobilization in Ukraine. According to Yaroslav Zhelezniak, an MP with the Holos party, it is likely that martial law will be extended until February 19, 2023.
