As well as provide for partial mobilization measures, organize and conduct training camps with reservists of the operational reserve in the required amounts. This means that full-scale mobilization in Ukraine should not be expected. But partial mobilization may be announced by the President of Ukraine in terms and volumes according to the threats to the national security of Ukraine. For this, it will be necessary to issue a completely new decree that will determine how many people need to be mobilized and for how long.
What is partial mobilization?
In the case of partial mobilization, reservists of the first stage will be called first. These are people who have undergone military training and have combat experience. If necessary, they will be called up and staffed combat units, where they already served.
Operational reserve І queues – these are already experienced warriors who know exactly what they need to do.

What is important, appropriate exercises will be held with all the territorial defense brigades. If a person arrives at these charges, he will receive financial compensation. appropriate money will be paid. If they were in mobilization, they would receive money as contract servicemen, and so, from 3 to 5 thousand hryvnias of additional payment they would receive, depending on to which you came ", – said the Deputy Minister of Defense.
