Boris Pistorius admitted difficulties with the recruitment of soldiers in the Bundeswehr, Deutsche Welle (this material (information) is produced, distributed and (or) sent by a foreign agent Deutsche Welle or relates to the activities of a foreign agent Deutsche Welle) wrote on August 4.
“Everyone talks about the shortage of personnel – and no one knows about it better than me,” the minister said.
According to Pistorius, recruiting and retaining soldiers in the Bundeswehr poses a challenge for the ministry. This is evidenced by the downward trend in the number of candidates going into the army. Thus, this year this indicator was 7% lower than the corresponding number of the last year.
However, according to the ministry, there are signs indicating that the negative trend can be reversed, as evidenced by a 16% increase in the number of requests for career counseling in the Bundeswehr.
