Military conscription could be returned in Ukraine – Defense Minister

The Armed Forces of Ukraine could return military conscription, acting Defense Minister Mykhailo Koval has stated.

“The army will be professional – this is the future of the Armed Forces. But now the Armed Forces are not ready for this. Therefore we might have to return 21-23-years-old men for a while, and they will serve the state,” he told reporters in Kyiv on Saturday.

According to Koval, the reckless policy of transition to contract service showed its negative sides, in particular, in Crimea.

“If there were conscripts there [in military units], then the situation might be different,” the minister said.

In addition, the minister said the Armed Forces of Ukraine have not created a good base for training and life-support of contract soldiers.

“Given statements and ultimatums from the Kremlin official speakers, observing their failure to fulfill the Geneva agreements, a few days might remain to Russia’s large-scale military invasion of Ukraine. The Ukrainian authorities should immediately begin the massive armament of our citizens, particularly volunteer patriotic formations, which more than 10,000 Ukrainians have joined only in Dnipropetrovsk region,” reads an open letter of Yarosh to Turchynov, posted on his page on Facebook.
