This will happen if necessary, but so far there are no problems with personnel in the army.

If necessary, another half a million people can be called up to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Major General Andrey Kovalchuk, Commander of the Operational Command "South", announced this in an interview with Tablet magazine.

According to him, unlike the occupying forces, the Ukrainian army has no problems with personnel.

“We have already mobilized half a million people, and we can mobilize another half a million if necessary. What we need now to continue the operation is heavier weapons,” the general explained.

It is noted that the Armed Forces of Ukraine do not yet have enough firepower for a counteroffensive in all directions.

Ukrainians have previously explained some details regarding the 2022 mobilization. In particular, according to the head of the Personnel Department of the Headquarters of the Ground Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Roman Gorbach, serving a summons to a citizen of Ukraine in any place not prohibited by law does not mean an instant draft into the army. It is necessary, first of all, for a person to register with the military.

According to the Ministry of Internal Affairs, more than 3 million citizens are registered with the military outside their residence.
