Ukraine wants to send the only submarine in the sea
Defense Minister Mikhail EZHEL promises to complete the repair and commission the submarine Zaporizhzhya.

As UNIAN was told in the Department of Press and Information of the Ministry of Defense, M. EZHEL announced this today to journalists in the Zhytomyr region, where the next stage of the exercise “Interaction - 2010” took place.
“The submarine Zaporizhzhya will be restored and put into operation,” he stressed.

Speaking about the situation with the only submarine of the Ukrainian Navy, the head of the national defense department noted that there were times when this submarine was “hidden” for 4-5 years.

“And they said that it would not be there,” said the Minister of Defense, noting that today only 40 countries in the world have their own submarine fleet.

“And I am sure that Ukraine has the right to have its own submarine fleet,” said M. EZHEL.

    Oh yes) All Ukrainians are in this, a small but hefty proud country. As in that joke: "The hedgehog is a proud bird, if you don't kick it, it won't fly ...". Their only outdated diesel submarine is proudly called the "submarine fleet". Three dozen obsolete combat aircraft - by the Air Force. And balancing on the edge of the interests of Russia and the United States is independence. All this can cause nothing but laughter.

      What a reason to get angry! Really? You better take an interest in how, during the Georgian conflict, your watchman foolishly grinned in one gulp of all the Poti guns, the paint fell off and stupidly started to sink to the bottom. They barely saved. They dragged back in tow. Infa is reliable. So, that is not you have to clown about and without. You have the same problems as ours. Cry, dear comrade!

        Correct however. We have different problems and fundamentally evaluate it correctly.

      Well, why should something have changed? ) Now, if they had not been given gas at one time, maybe something would have changed, the most desperate "horses" would have frozen in winter ...
