Military Review

The Minister of Defense of Ukraine was going to cancel the draft in the army


The Ukrainian authorities are distinguished by extremely controversial actions and rhetoric. Some time ago, Kiev decided that the draft age should be “consistent with constitutional norms”, as a result of which the draft was restored from 18 years. Recall that earlier in Ukraine, the lower draft bar on the basis of a presidential decree (in previous years) shifted to 20 years.

Moreover, the decision was declared “criminal”, according to which at one time they tried to cancel the call.

Now, Defense Minister Andrei Zagorodniuk is making a statement that many in Ukraine have been puzzled by. According to Zagorodniuk, the Ministry of Defense is working to completely cancel the call to the ranks of the Ukrainian power structures by transferring the service to an 100-percent contractual basis.

Zagorodniuk on TSN:

To cancel the draft in the army is my personal goal. It will not be soon, certainly not within a year. I will say that this is the position of the state as a whole. We are moving towards a professional army according to NATO standards. The army must be prepared, compact. And most importantly, each soldier must know the place, the path to advancement in the career ladder, and know that his rights are protected.

According to Zagorodniuk, it is necessary to work on competition in the selection of only the best of the best.

These words have already been criticized in Ukraine, noting that they are utopian. The main reason is that the level of monetary allowance of servicemen of the leading NATO countries is sometimes an order of magnitude different from the level of monetary allowance of an armed forces member of the Armed Forces. Moreover, in Ukraine there is a war that does not exactly push us to sign a contract.

      Most likely the worst of the worst. They are currently engaged in the capture of conscripts for active military service, and it is interesting who will go on a contract in this so-called army besides scumbags.

      The draft in the Ukrainian army was canceled only during the bloody Yanukovych,
      so much he wanted to please the liberals and the Maidan of Ukraine, so that they would not look in the direction of Yulia Tymoshenko, would not help, would not become his own. laughing

      Rather, a caput to the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine with a businessman in charge.
      In 2014, he began to “volunteer” in the war and in 2015 became a member of the “reform office” under the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, and since July 2019 - a member of the supervisory board of the Ukroboronprom Group of Companies.

      He received his first higher education at Kiev National University. Taras Shevchenko, then there was the University of Warwick and the University of Oxford in the UK. He is the founder, CEO of the company Discovery Drilling Equipment, which is engaged in drilling rigs (based in the UK and the USA, in Ukraine this company has two plants). He is also 100% owner of the British company Discovery Consulting Engineers Limited. He is the founder and beneficiary shareholder in four Ukrainian companies. Moreover, three of them are located in the city of Stryi (Lviv region): “Stri-Engineering”, “Discovery - Drilling Equipment Plant” and “Discovery - Drilling Equipment (Ukraine)”.

      His 30-year-old wife, Alina Sviderskaya, studied for money (scholarships) of the “philanthropist” George Soros in Cambridge and almost became a people's deputy on the list of the voice of Svyatoslav Vakarchuk’s party (she was at number 19, but only seventeen went to the Rada) in 2019 year.

The remaining third of the budget is medicine, education, subsidies ...

    We are moving towards a professional army according to NATO standards. The army must be prepared, compact.
    A professional army is, of course, good, but you also have to pay not 400 hryvnias, as a "conscript", but starting from 6000 hryvnias to a "contract soldier", since according to NATO standards, clothing and boiler allowances are also according to NATO. And this will not be provided by "volunteers", but by the state, and the money is also not small. The decision is good, here is one question "Will the Ukrainian economy cope with such a task?" If the minister says this, then he speaks on behalf of the government, and it means that Ukraine has this money. If I understood correctly, of course.
