"Indeed, the share of contract servicemen in the National Guard currently constitutes about 50%," he said.
"Today, we insist that military conscription existed in the National Guard. Accordingly, a decision on conscription has been made, only with different age of recruits - currently 20-27 years old," Spodar said.
He also said that the National Guard plans to draft about 7,500 people in April-May.
"During this time we will dismiss the soldiers who have already served for 1.5-2 years," the deputy commander said.
