84% of citizens joining the army after mobilization are not immediately deployed to the front, with only those possessing combat experience potentially permitted for such duty, Ukraine’s Armed Forces Commander-in-Chief Oleksandr Syrskyi said in an interview with journalists.

“The vast majority of conscripted arrive at training military units and centers to undergo special training, only after it can they be sent to resupply military units to restore their combat capability," he said.

Training period takes not less than one month, Chief Public Relations Officer of the Ukrainian Ground Forces Command, Lt. Col. Volodymyr Fityo, noted.

Men without military experience have not been allowed to go directly to the front since summer 2023, after the Armed Forces Statute on Internal Service has been amended –from then the commander has to prohibit mobilized persons who do not have combat experience or have not completed training to fight. Control over this norm compliance is entrusted to the commanders themselves.

Professional training, depending on the military accounting specialty, takes from 14 to 50 days followed by collective training for up to 15 days."
