Quote: "We already have certain organisational measures going on as per the decision of the General Staff… Speaking of additional mobilisation we need now - well, this is not a question now. We have enough men in the Armed Forces of Ukraine and in general in the security and defence sector at the moment.

What we do need - and we do not hide it, we say this to our Western partners, too - we need weapons. Starting with artillery, shells for it, armoured vehicles, tanks, aircraft, everything.

The partners are aware of this list in order for our boys and girls at the front to be more efficient and successful: this is what we have been showing these past nine months."

Details: This is how Reznikov replied to a question whether Ukraine was going to intensify the mobilisation in relation to a possible second wave of mobilisation in Russia.

The Defence Minister has also assumed that the Kremlin will look for new tactics and change the commanders of the army again.
