“A complex task has been set.
“Today there was a comprehensive report on how to solve this issue, what to do, what legislative changes [are needed], who should do this – this whole plan will be worked out and all the answers will be provided.
“Next week I will see this plan,” he said at a press conference with the President of Latvia in Kyiv.
Zelensky insisted that he would like “people to understand the whole plan of action, where we are going, what the challenges are, so that people can see all this.
“In mobilization, it is very important that we leave point A and understand where we are going – to point B.
“We must know where we must go and with what forces. Therefore, a comprehensive plan on this issue will be next week.
“At least, this task has been assigned to Zaluzhny, Umerov, and Shmyhal, because there are also economic issues. They will all report comprehensively next week.”
On Friday Zelensky held a meeting over the issues of demobilisation and the rotation of his troops.
Zelensky said, “Staff Headquarters meeting. Difficult issues: mobilization, demobilization, Territorial Recruiting Centers, military medical commission, rotation, conscripts.”
He was provided with reports from the “Minister of Defense Umerov, Commander-in-Chief Zaluzhny, Chief of the General Staff Shaptala, Minister of Health Liashko, Head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Klymenko, Minister of Foreign Affairs Kuleba, Director of the State Intelligence Bureau Sukhachiov and First Deputy Minister of Defense Pavliuk.”
