Against the background of the Ukraine war, more new soldiers took up service in the Bundeswehr in 2022 than in the previous year. The number of recruits rose by around 12 percent to 18,775 in the year of the Russian attack on Ukraine. The Federal Ministry of Defense announced this at the request of the German Press Agency. However, the pre-corona level has not yet been reached: In 2019, 20,170 men and women had started service in the Bundeswehr.

Last year’s recruits included 9,171 temporary soldiers, 8,623 volunteers doing military service and 981 volunteers doing military service in Homeland Security. At 17 percent, the proportion of women was slightly above the pre-Corona level (15 percent) – as was the proportion of minors, which increased from 8.5 percent in 2019 to 9.4 percent. Compared to the previous year, the number of women and minors who were new to the Bundeswehr increased.
