“We need reserves and we will do everything possible to see them finish successfully,” said Maxim, as quoted by TASR.

After undergoing training, the volunteers will be able to apply for service in the military as professional soldiers, according to Gajdoš.

“However, we will not be uncomfortable if they join the Police Corps, Interior Ministry’s and other forces, including fire corps, rescue services and private security services,” said Gajdoš, as quoted by TASR.
