In textbooks on stories of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, it is claimed that the “Ukrainian Marines” was created by Hetman Skoropadsky in 1918 year. It is stated that we are talking about three shelves stationed at that time in Kherson, Nikolaev and Odessa.
This is the hetman who created the government supported by the occupying German troops. Does this mean that today Poroshenko openly associates the very creation of the so-called "Ukrainian marines" with the assistance provided by the German occupiers?
Poroshenko also during the ceremony of "dressing up" Ukrainian marines announced that they "bravely entered into confrontation with the aggressor." And during the “repainting” of the berets for some reason I decided to priplesti a few words about the “deportation of the Crimean Tatars”.
In addition to the very date of the celebration of the Marine Corps, Poroshenko officially changed the traditional black berets to beats "navy blue." Now in Ukraine they said that the marines were turned into "former airborne troops".
Recall that the President of Ukraine also changed the name and version of the military uniform for those who were previously called Ukrainian paratroopers. And Poroshenko suffered the Day of the border guard on April 30.
The plan for trying to separate the country from the glorious military traditions carries out regularly.
