Ukraine should set service limit - military expert Dykyi on mobilization

Former Aidar battalion commander Yevhen Dykyi believes the state should take several steps regarding mobilization drive

He said this on the Espreso TV channel.

"The state has developed only one primitive option for mobilization. We have not yet dealt with mobilization as a problem. If we assume that mobilization is the problem of the Territorial Recruitment Center, then they are able to and will continue to solve the problem with brutal methods. Not only is this disrespectful, it is also ineffective. First, we need to recognize that there is a problem. We need to send many more people to the front. We need to compensate for the losses and replace those who have already fought for a year and a half or almost two years. We need to significantly increase the number of forces fighting," emphasized Dykyi.

According to the military expert, in 2024, the Ukrainian army, especially at the front, should at least equal the enemy's numbers.

"Society is already starting to talk not about problems with bad military commissariats, but about the problem with mobilization. The state should take several steps to mobilize. And the main step is to set a limit on the period of service, even during the war. We need to understand that if a person goes to war, he or she will be replaced in some time, even if the war lasts for 10 years," noted Dykyi.

  • The Verkhovna Rada is preparing a draft law to deprive some Ukrainians, including students of second and third higher education, of the right to defer mobilization. 
  • Earlier, the Rada registered a bill that proposes to limit the age of students who are not subject to mobilization. The document proposed to establish that ‘students of vocational (vocational-technical), professional higher education and higher education who, in full-time or dual forms of education, obtain a level of education higher than the previously obtained level of education in the sequence determined by the Law of Ukraine ‘On Education’, if the training was started no later than the year the student reached the age of 30, as well as doctoral students studying in full-time or dual forms of education’ are not subject to mobilization.
