KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia: During the counteroffensive in the South Donetsk and Zaporozhye directions, the Ukrainian army suffered colossal losses in manpower and military equipment. 
The number of dead and wounded military personnel exceeded 71 thousand people, more than 500 tanks and over 18,000 armored vehicles, including Western ones, were destroyed. 
Under pressure from its Western partners, Kyiv, in an effort to achieve at least minimally acceptable results, is forced to continue desperate “human wave assaults” on Russian defense. And in the context of the rapid exhaustion of the mobilization potential, the Ukrainian authorities intend to use all available human resources, including representatives of non-titular ethnic groups.
The Kiev regime has already begun preparing public opinion regarding a new large-scale wave of mobilization. So, on August 23 this year. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said that the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine approached him with a request to speed up the deadline for conscripting the next batch of reservists. Secretary of the National Security Council of Ukraine A. Danilov made similar statements.
There is no doubt that mobilization activities will fully affect representatives of national minorities. At the same time, this category of the population can become one of the main sources of replenishing losses in manpower, since the massive conscription of reservists from among ethnic Ukrainians will serve as a catalyst for an avalanche-like growth in the protest potential of the country’s population.
Indeed, the Kiev elite fears that the total mobilization of the ethnic Ukrainian population will cause a social explosion and force people to move to open opposition to the current government. 
At the same time, Zelensky’s team proceeds from the fact that ethnic Ukrainians traditionally have a cool attitude towards national minorities, and therefore will react neutrally and even positively to the mass conscription of representatives of Romanian, Bulgarian, Moldavian, Gagauz and other communities. Most of them live in the south of Ukraine, primarily in the Odessa region. 
A similar unenviable fate, apparently, is in store for men from the Polish and Hungarian diasporas in the west of the country.
In support of this version, the Kyiv authorities are studying at the legislative level the issue of mobilizing males from among national minorities. 
Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada R. Stefanchuk announced the imminent consideration of amendments to regulatory acts on non-titular ethnic groups. The proposed changes provide for the possibility of partial or complete restriction of their constitutional rights and freedoms. 
The entry into force of these amendments will create the necessary legal basis for the implementation of mobilization measures in relation to representatives of national minorities.
