Mobilization in Ukraine began on Feb 24 last year, still underway, there’re no waves of mobilization – Horbach

KYIV. Jan 24 (Interfax-Ukraine) – The general mobilization in Ukraine began on February 24, 2022 and continues to the present moment, there are no waves of mobilization, said Roman Horbach, head of the Personnel Department of the headquarters of the AFU Ground Forces Command.

"In most cases, citizens today are called to territorial recruitment centers in order to clarify military credentials. The decision to mobilize a citizen is made after the conclusion of the medical commission on the suitability of military service," the Military Media Center of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine quoted Horbach as saying.

According to the head of the department, personnel who have not previously completed military service, are called up to training centers where training in certain specialties takes place. After that, the servicemen arrive in military units for specific positions.

At the same time, Horbach noted that citizens mobilized with military service experience and a short break in service can go directly to combat military units.

"Today we need specialists both for new models of weapons provided by partners, and to replenish losses. First of all, they mobilize personnel in certain accounting and military specialties," the head of the department stressed.

"Today’s stage is crucial for us and our descendants. It is everyone’s duty to protect our state from the aggressor," he concluded.
