Ukraine’s Minister of Defense, Rustem Umerov, has signed an order approving the Concept of Military Personnel Policy until 2028

The Ministry of Defense reported the information.

The order, signed by Defense Minister Umerov, outlines Ukraine’s strategic vision for the development of military personnel policy in the defense sector over the next five years, both during martial law and in peacetime.

“The primary focus of this concept is to ensure the fulfillment of the Ukrainian Armed Forces' human resource requirements during a full-scale war, integration into the Euro-Atlantic security space, and interoperability of the Ukrainian Armed Forces with the armed forces of NATO member states," the ministry said in a statement.

The expected results are as follows:

  • The Armed Forces of Ukraine will switch to contract service. Conscript service will be replaced by intensive military training for citizens of military age;

  • Ukraine will have an effective system of recruiting professional and motivated personnel for the Armed Forces;

  • A human-centered approach to career management of military personnel, taking into account their education, professional development, and gender equality. 

  • Equal opportunities for men and women in the Armed Forces;

  • Improved electronic military registration system;

  • Automated and digitized personnel management processes; expanded cooperation between Ukrainian higher education institutions and universities in NATO and EU member states;

  • An effective and transparent system of financial support for servicemen and women and provision of housing;

  • Improved psychological support;

  • A new culture of relationships between commanders and subordinates;

  • Proper conditions for the transition from military career to civilian life for servicemen who are to be discharged from military service.

Monitoring and evaluation of the results of the concept's implementation will be carried out by the Human Resources Management Committee within the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.

  • On Saturday, November 4, Ukraine's Defense Minister, Rustem Umerov, held a weekly phone conversation with his counterpart from the United States, Lloyd Austin, during which he emphasized Ukraine's current needs, including ammunition for soldiers.
