Conscripts will be demobilised in the near future, the secretary of the National Security and Defence Council, Oleksiy Danilov, has said in a commentary to Ukrainian Radio.

According to him, this issue was discussed at a meeting of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief's Staff on 24 November.

The idea of demobilisation was proposed by Zelensk, and the military agreed to it.

"...Much attention was paid to this issue so that we could fairly deal with the issue of recruiting those people who are necessary for the country's defence capability. With regard to the mobilisation of people who have served in the army, the president has asked and the military has agreed that these people will be demobilised in the near future. This process will take place and we understand how many of them there are," Danilov said.

The NSDC secretary added that conscripts whose term of service has expired but who wish to remain can do so by signing a contract. The rest will be demobilised.

"This is fair," Danilov added.

Next week, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valeriy Zaluzhnyy and Defence Minister Rustem Umerov are to present a new mobilisation plan. The relevant order was given by President Zelenskyy.

Meanwhile, parliament is working on a draft law to regulate the issue of mobilisation, leave and demobilisation of the military.
