In Kiev, a parade was held with the participation of NATO

A military parade on the occasion of the 26 anniversary of the independence of Ukraine took place on Thursday in the center of Kiev. For the first time, NATO servicemen took part in it, TASS

The Minister of Defense of Ukraine Stepan Poltorak met participants in the parade at the American military Hummer instead of the traditional Soviet car GAZ "Chaika" with an open top.

In total, around 4,5, thousands of servicemen marched along the main street of the capital, Khreshchatyk, of whom more than 230 were representatives of the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance, and more than a thousand were participants in the military operation in Donbass.

In Kiev, a parade was held with the participation of NATO


At the invitation of Ukraine, ministers of defense and delegations from nine countries — the USA, Great Britain, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Montenegro, Estonia, Turkey, and Moldova — also arrived in Kiev.

This year, military equipment did not take part in the celebrations; instead, on the Khreshchatyk, the Ministry of Defense organized an exhibition of military equipment, "The Power of the Unsubdued."

Speaking to the audience, President Poroshenko once again announced that Kiev is strictly following the path of integration into the EU and NATO.

We have one road: a wide Euro-Atlantic autobahn, which leads to membership in the European Union and membership in NATO. On this way, we have already destroyed the visa curtain.
- He said, referring to the introduction of a visa-free regime with EU countries. The President said that Ukraine continues to reform its Armed Forces to meet NATO standards, and has traditionally accused the Russian Federation of the situation in the Donbas.



The Minister of Defense of Ukraine Stepan Poltorak said during the celebrations that, according to NATO standards, 28 combat units of the country's Armed Forces had already been trained.

Now reforms are continuing in the Ukrainian army, which are unprecedented in scale and ambition in stories. Reforms are being introduced along with advisers and experts from NATO countries. By NATO standards, 28 combat units have already been trained. We are building the Armed Forces, which must reach the highest level of partnership with the North Atlantic Alliance
- noted Poltorak.

        All this is disgusting. These "brothers" are now doing everything to somehow pinch Russia. The longer this continues, the more trouble they will do to us. It seems that their idea of ​​fixation is to annoy the hated Muscovy more by any means, even to the detriment of themselves.
        Yes, the Americans knew where to invest. Natsik’s legacy would sooner or later prove itself.

          No one needs such a crap to fight for him. Territory 404 does not have huge reserves of mineral resources, industry is almost destroyed, and the local fauna is rapidly running wild. The only purpose of the U country is the US bridgehead for aggression against Russia, which should not be allowed. If the territory cannot be seized with reasonable costs, then it must be drawn for an indefinite period of time, turning it into an analogue of Somalia.

      For me, such holidays are better

      The reunification of Ukraine and Russia, which I connect with the Pereyaslav Rada, was a meeting of representatives of the Zaporizhzhya Cossacks led by hetman Bogdan Khmelnitsky, held on January 8 (18), 1654 in Pereyaslav, at which the decision to unite was made public the territory of the Zaporizhzhya Army with the Russian Empirefixed by the oath of allegiance to the king. The Zaporizhzhya army and most of the people in the territory subordinate to it were Russian people, Orthodox. Then there was no Ukraine and no Ukrainians. Even after 200 years, when Gogol wrote his story Taras Bulba (1836-1842), this was not the case either. So no epoch-making event happened then. Zaporizhzhya Cossacks swore allegiance to the Russian Tsar several times. The first such event occurred in 1552, when Dmitry Volyn prince Dmitry Vishnevetsky, founder of the first Zaporizhzhya (Khortytsky) section, then the head of the Cherkasy Cossacks, entered into an alliance with Ivan the Terrible and participated in a joint campaign against the Crimean khan. After this, and even after the Preyaslav Rada, the Zaporozhye Cossacks repeatedly betrayed the Russian Tsar, entered into alliances with the Tatars, Turks, Poles and fought against Russia. In the end, Catherine II completely eliminated this prostitute bandit formation. Part of the Zaporozhye Cossacks was resettled in the Kuban and from them the Kuban Cossack army was formed.
      And if there is a desire to celebrate, then there are many Orthodox and state holidays. Only by the branches of the armed forces and by the professions of the holidays are several dozen + days of Russian victories in all wars.

    Today, August 24, 2017 (remember this date), the "Secretary of Defense" in Kiev is hosted by the US Secretary of Defense, and NATO soldiers march along Khreshchatyk.
    I have already read a bunch of mocking comments, many of them from a position of superiority - like we are such a great power, and Ukraine is a US colony, ahaha.
    Although in general this is a SHAME. National shame.
    No, not Ukraine - Russia.
    The shame of Russia as a Russian state (Americans marching in Kiev, “mothers of Russian cities”) and the shameful failure of the foreign policy of the Russian Federation, which allowed a coup in a neighboring state, in which our main geopolitical adversary now rules.
    You can trend a lot about a great power, the geopolitical genius of Putin, etc., but in our neighboring country we have not a pro-Russian, but a radically anti-Russian, fiercely Russophobic regime. And in this country, the Minister of Defense of not Russia, but the United States takes a military parade. And according to Khreshchatyk, not Russian, but American soldiers marching.
    Who is the great power - the United States, which they do what they want next to Russia (Georgia, the Baltic states, Ukraine, Belarus is next in turn), or the Russian Federation, which is not even dumb to join, but at least recognize LDN? It’s dumb not even because of the “third world war,” which will not be, but because of smelly economic sanctions, because of the dough and real estate of the Russian elite.
    Americans from another continent overthrow the regimes, build military bases and hold military parades on OUR borders. The Russians in response laugh at the x-rubbish and talk about the great Russian mnogohodovochka.
    The worst thing is not the Americans, "a holy place does not happen empty." The worst thing is how they look at it on both sides of the filthy Bialowieza border. Ukrainians have American awards to ATO fighters, gay parades and NATO soldiers ’marches in Kiev - this is a national holiday. We have all this for a long time passed the category of "what is there at x-chlov".
    For x-hlov, not Russian, that’s the problem.
    We ourselves surrendered the Russian majority in Ukraine to x-trash, abandoned Ukraine as part of Russia and from its millions of people as part of the Russian people. Therefore, what is happening there today - this is not what the x-hols, ahaha - is our national tragedy and our national shame.

    Impressions...
    - a hard look at Poroshenko ....
    - Irina Gerashchenko never wiped her palms in her bangs and generally did it without much enthusiasm, so she again lost her meaning ...
    - the troops, as they really did not know how to walk in a solemn march, did not learn ...

    You can certainly laugh as much as you like, but NATO soldiers marching along Khreshchatyk speak of the failure of all of Russia's foreign policy over the past 20 years.

    Proebalts (Estonians) walk as they put in their pants .. no, well, seriously look at this miracle ..
    The British were pretty good at it (for a freelance paradish for them)

    It seems that the pants do not care ... whether.

    And we generally had a foreign policy, starting from the time of Gorbachev.

    Guys not long ago in Kiev in different parts of the city someone wrote at a bus stop and on the same wall of the house: "DEATH OF THE USA". The emphasis is the same.

    Perhaps the underground is already sharpening its teeth, the power will change, so remember my words.

    By the way - back in 2013 there were completely different inscriptions like: ss galicia, the right sector ... Now you will not see this. The people begin to understand little by little that they threw him as though in the 90s

    NATA is still crying. Charles XII was badly damaged by entich allies. First, Mazepa left the Swede without a guzzle, draining Baturin. Then the mass of light Cossack cavalry of Kuda then wandered, leaving the Normans without reconnaissance and guard of the rear. As a result, Karl was left without gunpowder after an unexpected defeat of the train of Loewenheve (Levengaupt). In the Battle of Poltava, the Swedish commander generally pushed the Ukrainians far away so as not to give out his cunning plan to hit the sleeping Rusaks at night. Mazepins daredevils would wake the Peter army ahead of schedule with their inappropriate stomp and hiccups ...

    “Russia doesn’t perceive any Ukraine at all. Therefore, in the Russian laboratories they first invented Novorossiya, then they came up with Little Russia. As you say, let them go crazy. And our Ukraine will be successful,” said the president of a country that exists 26 years old.
    Ukrainians and the Ukrainian language did not exist until the beginning of the 20th century.


    There were a couple of hundred Ukrainophiles from among the intelligentsia. So this is more sectarian. Until they received the support of Austria-Hungary so their attempts were zero. And when the Austrians needed to suppress the Russian population (Rusyns) on their territory, Ukrainization rolled over. But the main thing in Ukrainization was done by the Bolsheviks during the targeted Ukrainization of the 20-30s. And they created the dictionary, and the encyclopedia, the language was cleaned up and unified, and the songs were edited, people were taught to write and speak Kiev ... But according to the Ukrainian law on decommunication, this must be abandoned !!! That's where the brain explosion!

    If you listen to the broadcast on the central Ukrainian television parade on August 24, then this is just an explosion of the brain (their brain!):

    Listen to at least the beginning of the broadcast and you will find out what a tremendous contribution to the formation of European civilization and medieval history was made by a people who did not exist until the beginning of the 20th century and a state that existed for about 3 years (1917-1920) in several areas (migrating from one to another) on the border of Romania, Austria-Hungary, Poland and Russia, and 26 years at the turn of the 20-21 centuries. A state that has not founded and built not a single city, not a single architectural monument - that is, has not left any trace in history.
