Former Ukrainian minister suggests mobilizing through lottery, Armed Forces respond

Tymofiy Mylovanov, a member of the supervisory board of the Ukrainian Defense Industry joint-stock company and former Minister of Economy, proposed to mobilize through a lottery

He wrote about this on Facebook.

Mylovanov decided to ask his readers for their opinion on this approach to conscription.

"Most of my readers write that the right approach to mobilization is through a lottery or draw. The state randomly selects a day and a month. Those people who were born on those days are mobilized, others are not. And it does this for every wave of mobilization," he wrote.

In the comments, people wrote to him that the government is turning mobilization into a circus.

Viktor Taran, head of the Kruk UAV Operator Training Center, said that the government should take care of improving social guarantees for the military and their families, increasing the salaries of defenders, and not organize a lottery.

"Two realities. Ukraine. A member of the Supervisory Board of Ukroboronprom proposes to hold a "Funny Mobilization" lottery across the country to implement the idea of mobilizing 500,000 Ukrainians. Those who pull out a ticket will be drafted. If not, then no. We are not talking about increasing social guarantees for the military and their families, increasing salaries, guarantees to serve for their profession, etc. It's just a lottery," Taran wrote.

  • On November 9, 2023, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy signed a law extending general mobilization until February 14, 2024.
  • On December 19, Zelenskyy announced at a press conference on the results of 2023 that the General Staff has requested the mobilization of an additional 450,000-500,000 Ukrainians.
  • On December 25, the Cabinet of Ministers submited a bill to improve the mobilization procedure.
  • National Police Chief Ivan Vyhivskyi commented on the proposal to mobilize law enforcement, noting that police are already involved in the country's defense to the maximum extent possible and are holding the "internal front."
