APU - 25! Way from nerds to punishers
December 6 - 25-anniversary of the creation of the APU. On a memorable date, especially in such a “round”, it is customary to briefly recall the main milestones in the development of the army of an independent state.
6 December 1991 was adopted the Law of Ukraine “On the Armed Forces of Ukraine”. At the time of the appearance of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the following people received from the collapsed Soviet Army
About 2000 strategic nuclear warheads and about 4000 tactical. 130 SS-19 missiles (6 warheads each) and 46 SS-24 10 warheads each. All missiles are located in fully equipped mine launchers. Also available to 43 strategic bombers.
In terms of nuclear power, at that time Ukraine occupied the 3 place in the world - after Russia and the United States.
The army is up to 800 thousand people. Up to 6000 tanks, up to 1100 combat aircraft, a huge amount of artillery and MLRS, only "Tornadoes" - 95 units. Ukraine has received up to 700 defense industry enterprises capable of producing any weapons and components. And also, nobody took into account the huge stockpiles of weapons and ammunition exported from the Warsaw Treaty member countries.
After the division of the Black Sea Fleet of the USSR, the Ukrainian Navy received: 43 warships, 132 ships and boats, 12 aircraft, 30 helicopters, 227 coastal objects, a significant amount of equipment, weapons, ammunition and other property. Ukrainians even got the submarine of the project ZNZX “Zaporozhye”.
Over the 25 years, the APU made a giant leap in its development. The main steps are as follows:
Nuclear weapon Ukraine gave 2 a million dollars in exchange for the Budapest Memorandum. Which, by the way, has never been ratified, and therefore is not binding. The ancient ukry voluntarily gave up nuclear warheads, blew up the silo-launchers and cut almost all the bombers.
Ukraine entered the world leaders in terms of the volume of weapons sold. All that still drove, flew and shot - sold in the banana republic. For the pre-war 2013 year, 208 airplanes and about 700 tanks remained in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, of which the working ones - at best, half. Therefore, “hero ATO” and put on the radioactive Chernobyl technique - probably, so that the surviving “defenders of the motherland” did not reproduce.
The best that Ukrainians did with the Navy was removed for the West "historical"A film about how the Cossacks in the 16th century built wooden submarines.
The descendants of the Cossacks could not even serve the metal submarine, and only in 2012 did Zaporozhye go out into the sea a little and even plunge a little. In the process of parting Crimea with Ukraine - until the Ukrainians realized that Zaporizhia was a lot of valuable scrap metal - the submarine came under Russian control fleet.
According to Ukrainian data, for the summer of 2016, the Ukrainian Navy retained 7 warships and boats, 24 auxiliary ships and several inflatable hull boats purchased from the United States. That is - up to 50 ships according to the Ukrainians. And, of course, a historical film about the Cossack submarines.
True, they increased the number of admirals and generals. Until 13. On 1, the warship is 1 admiral / general, on the remaining 6 - according to 2. How 2 Admiral gets along on the 1 boat is still a mystery.
It should be especially noted that, despite some shortcomings, the combat training of the personnel reached a previously unseen level. The wealthy Ukrainian girls and homosexuals were so pleased with the prostitute soldiers that it even got into the republican news.
Well, the main page in the glorious history of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is the civil war. The only way to demonstrate combat readiness is a war against an unarmed population. Nevertheless, yesterday's miners and entrepreneurs, armed with something else, were able to give a fitting rebuff to the “knightly Ukrainian army”. Which was only able to hit artillery and ballistic missiles in residential areas.
Much has been said about the participation of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the punitive operation in recent years; one thing can be added. There is an ancient rule - an army that stained itself with the blood of its people cannot fight against an external enemy. This is not the army, it is something else.
For 25 years, the Ukrainian Armed Forces made the transition from the third in the world nuclear army to Poroshenko's amusing troops, pocket punishers Muzhenko and Poltorak and the “sixes” at the national battalions. It is significant that the main open supporter of the revival of nuclear weapons in Ukraine is the main open "universal" Lyashko. Well, there is every reason to congratulate the Ukrainian Armed Forces on sustainable development and military buildup.
In Holland, I have seen how when you fill in the official documents on a computer, the “Country” item is selected from the drop-down list. So, in 2012, neither Russia nor Ukraine was on this list - there was only Sovjet-Unie, the Soviet Union. From the point of view of the West, the destruction of Ukraine is the destruction of the Kiev, Carpathian and Odessa military districts of the USSR, which is now called otherwise. The West also received a show of baboons who, for the applause of the West, destroyed their army and cut off strategic bombers.
In fact, the NATO bloc was able to crush a nuclear power without a single shot, and in the defeated power was able to organize a civil war. And all this - by the hands of the Ukrainians themselves, who believed in the friendship of the West. And the efforts of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, intended for "the defense of Ukraine, the defense of its sovereignty, territorial integrity and inviolability".
Yes, I almost forgot: today's sponsor of congratulations is Roshen chocolate. Chocolate "Roshen" - the sweet help of the Russian army.
