"Over the first three months of 2016, some 18,000 contract soldiers have been enlisted, and it's quite a serious figure. As soon as the strategic command and staff exercises finish, we'll be able to decide if the 7th round of mobilization is required and if so, to what extent. By our estimates, drafting 5,000 to 10,000 people will be considered, but again - only if such a necessity will be there," Selezniov said.
