KIEV, October 24. /TASS/. The Ukrainian army needs additional troops so all men under 60, who are liable for military service, should expect draft notices, head of the Kiev City Center for Recruitment and Social Support Yury Maximov said.
"There is a need for additional [troops]. We need to increase our potential," he said in an interview with the TSN news agency. "Clearly, we must have enough defense troops. I believe that the mobilization campaign will continue," Maximov added.
"All men under 60 who are liable for military service should expect to be served with draft notices," he noted, adding that the mobilization campaign was likely to continue in 2023.
Martial law was imposed in Ukraine on February 24, 2022. The next day, the State Border Service announced a prohibition on Ukrainian men aged between 18 and 60 from leaving the country until martial law was over. In August, the Verkhovna Rada (parliament) once again extended martial law and a general mobilization campaign for 90 days, until November 21.
