"We are meticulous": the new Commander of the Land Forces speaks about the mobilization of 500 thousand Ukrainians

Pavlyuk spoke about the mobilization of 500 thousand people

The Command of the Ukrainian Defense Forces is very particular about providing and preparing Ukrainian soldiers for the front line. That is why the Ministry of Defense is currently working to ensure that in case of mobilization of 500,000 people into the ranks of the Ukrainian army, the soldiers will be provided with everything they need.

This was stated by the Commander of the Land Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the air of Radio Liberty on Sunday, February 18. He emphasized that no mobilized citizen will be sent to the battlefield without appropriate equipment and proper military training.

The military command of Ukraine is closely monitoring this process.

"We are very meticulous about this, especially now, - the training of personnel. A person going to war must gain experience and practice to be ready for action," he said.

Pavlyuk noted that the necessary amount of equipment and weapons for those who will be sent to the front line is available. Therefore, he believes that the Ukrainian military and political command will take care of the issue of adequate training and equipment for the mobilized.

At the same time, he added that there are issues regarding large-caliber equipment and ammunition that the military command is studying and working on.

As reported by OBOZ.UA:

- At the end of 2023, Ukraine's military command requested the mobilization of 500,000 people. To date, the government continues to develop rules for conscription.

- At the same time, President Volodymyr Zelensky said that he saw no need to mobilize another 500,000 citizens. According to him, he did not receive enough information about the planned actions and operations that would require such a large-scale replenishment of the army.

- The head of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Finance, Taxation and Customs Policy, Danylo Hetmantsev, said that Ukraine needs an additional 720 billion UAH in funding to mobilize 400-500 thousand soldiers. This is a serious amount of money, and the government may have to make unpopular decisions to find it.

- On February 7, members of the Rada passed the draft law on mobilization in the first reading without any proposals from the Committee. The leader of the SN faction, David Arakhamia, said that a number of significant changes were to be made to the draft law.
