UPD: 01/14/2015 General Staff: During the mobilization specialties of the ground forces will be claimed
During the next wave of mobilization, specialties of mainly ground forces will be in demand. This was stated 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 (AFU), 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 Donbass into the format of a frozen conflict. Therefore, we are obliged to maintain the combat readiness of the armed forces, ”said Mr. Talalai. Therefore, according to him, there was a need to rotate the fighters involved in the anti-terrorist operation (ATO).
Another major reason for the mobilization of the major general called the expiration of social guarantees for ATO soldiers, which are distributed until March. The third factor that necessitates the mobilization is the creation of a combat-ready reserve of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
According to Mr. Talalay, in the framework of the mobilization the same specialists will be in demand as last year. “Now the most popular in the ATO zone are artillerymen, gunners, driver mechanics, tankmen, communications and intelligence specialists, and qualified air defense specialists,” he noted.
According to him, the need for the fifth and sixth stage of mobilization will be determined by the military-political situation around Ukraine.
Major General also recalled the criminal liability for evading military duty. According to him, if a person openly declares his unwillingness to serve, he can be prosecuted for a term of 2 to 5 years in prison. At the same time, Mr. Talalay emphasized that the mobilized person must personally receive the summons and sign it. If the summons is thrown into the mailbox, and the person does not receive it, then this will not be considered as evasion of military duty.
UPD: 01/14/2015 The term for the next mobilization will be 210 days, - the General Staff
The General Staff promise that the next wave of mobilization will spread evenly to all regions of Ukraine, depending on the number of combat-ready population.
This was at a briefing on Tuesday in Kiev, said deputy chief of the mobilization planning department of the General Staff Vladimir Talalay
According to him, the Verkhovna Rada must approve the president’s decree on the next wave of partial mobilization, which means that the exact dates for the start of mobilization are currently unknown: "Agenda will be only after the decision of the Rada. Only 50 thousand people will be mobilized," he said.
However, according to him, previously mobilized citizens will be exempted from military service in the ATO zone from March to May of this year.
“A new wave of mobilization will affect only those who have a military specialty. In the next stage, almost the same categories as last year will be called up: these are citizens who, due to their health, are fit for military service, who have a military specialty, That is, during the mobilization, the principle of a uniform load on the regions of the state will be observed so that there are no social exacerbations in a particular village, including due to the seizure of able-bodied citizens “Citizens from the occupied territories will be called upon without restrictions,” Talalai said.
Conscripts (up to 25 years old) will not be mobilized, only by request and by contract, Talalay specified
According to him, the mobilization period will be 210 days, 26 of which are reserved for military training and 15 for combat coordination.
Also, Talalai does not confirm the 5th and 6th mobilization wave this year.
UPD: 01/14/2015 The General Staff explained what agendas can be considered invalid
The summons that are not handed personally to the conscript are not considered valid and for the failure to appear on the summons, which will be thrown into the mailbox or transferred to third parties, the conscript does not bear responsibility.
This was announced at a press conference by Major General, First Deputy Head of the Main Directorate of Defense and Mobilization Planning of the General Staff 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 to any regions of Ukraine, Talalay noted that approximately 2.5% of the population from each region are subject to mobilization. Citizens of Ukraine living in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, as well as in parts of Donetsk and Lugansk regions occupied by terrorists, can serve if they wish, if they leave the territories controlled by terrorists and appear in military commissariats. As you know, the Donetsk regional military registration and enlistment office was sent to Mariupol, and Lugansk - to Severodonetsk.
Earlier it was reported that the Ukrainian military, called up during the first mobilization phase in March last year, will be sacked in the period from March-May 2015.
