Ukraine will no longer see large swaths of individuals willing to mobilize voluntarily, as those keen on joining the military have already done so in 2022, Yuriy Butusov, Editor-in-Chief at Censor.NET said in an interview with NV Radio on Nov. 6.
“There will be no more volunteers to mobilize,” said Butusov.
“Everyone who wanted to mobilize, did that last year. People will join the military now only in accordance with the circumstances dictated by the law and their personal convictions.”
The journalist added that those who survived from the first wave of volunteers who went to join the army should be given a chance to rotate out and rest, and therefore it is essential to "immediately restructure the army."
“This is a continuous process of changes and reforms that must adapt to the mass mobilization of people, many of whom are not volunteers,” he said.
“Most are not military professionals and are unprepared. This is a significant challenge that existed in the First and Second World Wars, and now in what might be termed the Third World War; we have to do it ourselves, to make these decisions.”
According to Butusov, "we need to think not about inspiration, about volunteers," but about the fact that every person, including those mobilized by mandate, must receive proper training, and be used "according to their actual abilities, not someone's imaginations."
