UPD: 14/01/2015 General Staff: Specialties of the ground forces will be in demand during the mobilization
During the next wave of mobilization, specialties of mainly ground forces will be in demand. This was announced at a press conference by the First Deputy Head of the Main Directorate of Defense and Mobilization Planning of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (MAT), Major General Vladimir Talalay.
According to him, the need for a fourth wave of mobilization is due to the actions of the Russian Federation. “Russia will try to translate the situation in the Donbas in the format of a“ frozen ”conflict. Therefore, we are obliged to maintain the combat effectiveness of the armed forces, ”said Mr. Talalay. Therefore, according to him, it became necessary to rotate the fighters involved in the antiterrorist operation (ATO).
Another reason for the mobilization of the Major General called the expiration of the social guarantees for the soldiers of the ATO, which extend until March. The third factor that determines the need for mobilization is the creation of an efficient reserve of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
According to Mr. Talalay, within the framework of the mobilization, the same specialists will be in demand as last year. "The most in demand in the ATO zone now are artillerymen, gunners, driver mechanics, tankers, communications, intelligence, and skilled air defense specialists," he said.
According to him, the need for the fifth and sixth stages of mobilization will be due to the military-political situation around Ukraine.
The Major General also recalled criminal liability for evading conscription. According to him, if a person openly declares his unwillingness to serve, he can be held criminally liable for a term of 2 to 5 years in prison. At the same time, Mr. Talalay stressed that the mobilized must personally receive the agenda and sign it. If the agenda is thrown into the mailbox and the person does not receive it, then this will not be considered a deviation from military obligations.
UPD: 14/01/2015 The next mobilization period will be 210 days, - the General Staff
The General Staff promises that the next wave of mobilization will spread evenly to all regions of Ukraine, depending on the number of efficient population.
This was at a briefing on Tuesday in Kiev, said Deputy Head of the mobilization planning department of the General Staff Vladimir Talalay
According to him, the Verkhovna Rada must approve the presidential decree on the next wave of partial mobilization, which means that the specific timeline for the start of mobilization is currently unknown: "Agenda will be only after the decision of the Rada. Only 50 thousand people will be mobilized," he said
At the same time, according to him, previously mobilized citizens will be exempt from military service in the ATO zone from March to May of the current year.
"The new wave of mobilization will affect only those who have a military specialty. In the next stage, the same categories as last year will be called up: these are citizens who are fit for military service and have a military specialty, that is, military training.Also during the course of the mobilization, the principle of equal load on the regions of the state will be observed, so that there are no social exacerbations in a particular settlement, including due to the removal of able-bodied citizens “Citizens from the occupied territories will be summoned - without restrictions,” said Talalay.
Conscripts (under 25 years old) will not be mobilized, only at will and under a contract, ”Talalay specified.
According to him, the period of mobilization will be 210 days, 26 of which are devoted to general military training and 15 - to combat coordination.
Also, Talalay does not confirm the 5th and 6th wave of mobilization this year.
UPD: 14/01/2015 The General Staff explained what the agenda can be considered invalid
Agenda for persons liable for military service who are not personally handed to the conscript are not considered valid and the conscript is not responsible for non-attendance of the summons to be thrown into the mailbox or transferred to third parties.
This was announced at a press conference by Major General, First Deputy Head of the Main Directorate of Defense and Mobilization Planning of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Vladimir Talalay.
According to him, the approximate number of citizens to be mobilized during the fourth wave will be about 50 thousand people, the exact number is not called.
Answering the question whether there will be preferences for any regions of Ukraine, Talalay noted that approximately 2.5% of the population from each region are to be mobilized. Citizens of Ukraine living in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, as well as in the occupied by terrorists parts of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions, can serve if they wish, if they leave the territories controlled by the terrorists and go to the military registration and enlistment offices. As is known, the Donetsk regional military registration and enlistment office was launched in Mariupol, and Lugansky - in Severodonetsk.
Earlier it was reported that the Ukrainian military, called up during the first stage of mobilization in March last year, will be retired during the period March-May 2015.
