There is currently no need to announce additional mobilisation, Defene Minister Oleksiy Reznikov has said at a press conference, according to a correspondent of

"It would be wrong for me to make predictions about when it (the war - ed.) will end. It depends on many circumstances. But I can say that today I visited the president's office, the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces. There were reports from our commanders and the military. We are moving forward. There are certain changes in the counteroffensive. Not as fast as everyone would like. Everyone wants it to be like in the movies. To start today and finish tomorrow. But we are moving steadily. This is the most important thing. We are moving according to the plan," the minister said.

Reznikov predicts that the victorious movement of Ukrainian forces will affect the morale of Russian troops. "We can already see the convulsive and chaotic redeployment of forces... We can see their fuss. And this is a good sign."

He also recalled that the mobilisation plan was approved by parliament on the proposal of the military leadership.

"This plan has not yet been implemented. In a good way. This means that today we do not need to announce a new mobilisation to increase the number of troops. We still have resources in terms of the legal factor," he said.

According to him, the staff of the recruitment centres is being renewed. In the autumn, the company plans to switch to digitalisation of the certificate issuance process and the work of such centres.

"I don't think there will be any question of raising the bar in the coming months. Yes, it is unfortunate that we are suffering losses. I cannot name them. But they are many times fewer than those of the Russians... It is important to replace the losses... That is, there is a rotation," he said.
