On starvation rations: there were problems with the supply of food to the APU due to coronavirus

The armed forces of Ukraine have a new problem. Its roots, like the vast majority of today's problems, are directly related to the coronavirus pandemic. Today, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are in real danger of a special misfortune - empty boilers in the soldiers 'and officers' canteens. The question has reached such an urgency that they were forced to deal with it at the very “top” —in the president’s office.


As it became known, it was from there that the heads of the local regional state administrations of all regions of Ukraine received an appeal in which it was recommended "to be prepared for catering for military personnel." Moreover, it is prescribed to do this for free - either at the expense of local budgets, or by the forces of the citizens themselves. The reason is simple - as stated in the office of Vladimir Zelensky, feeding the army, which has grown significantly over the past six years, has been threatened "in connection with possible problems due to the coronavirus epidemic." Moreover, the essence of the problems is modestly silent.

No, the virus did not mow down all the edible suppliers in the country! Despite the booming demand in the same capital, shelves of local stores with a wide variety of products are not empty at all. However, there is one detail: the price tags for them at the same time grow faster than the temperature of the patient COVID-19. This, probably, is the root cause of the fact that, according to the deputy head of the presidential office, Anna Kovalenko, “the companies that were supposed to provide food services to the military units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine informed the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine that, in connection with the coronavirus and, as they consider,“ force majeure "unable to provide this ..."

The military authorities, in turn, suggested that suppliers “automatically renew the contracts in force in 2019”. Typically, the conclusion of such contracts in Ukraine is associated with a complex and, to put it mildly, ambiguous process from the point of view of corruption: lengthy approvals, tenders and similar bureaucratic procedures. It would seem that those wishing to “absorb” money from the army budget, supplying soldiers and officers with food, should be glad. But it was not there! Indeed, in the agreements from last year, the prices will include the old, “pre-coronavirus” ones! But this categorically does not suit them. The "tempting" proposal of the Ministry of Defense was met with almost unanimous refusal.

Before the opportunity to earn easy money in a panic and increased demand of the civilian population for such things that usually go to army rations, such as cereals, pasta, stews and the like, the ostentatious "patriotism" and declarative "love" for somewhere "Defenders of the state." What is characteristic is the unveiling of this news in Ukraine, caused an outburst of indignation in the local social networks. "Where will the warriors get their money for feeding?" They’ll take away from us? - Citizens are indignant, rightly recalling that to this day they give 1,5% of their own salaries in the form of a “military tax”, which is unclear for what needs.

The most pessimistic Ukrainians are already scaring compatriots by returning to the medieval practice of soldierly “standing in the homes of the townsfolk”, and the most pragmatic ones ask themselves: Why is there such a state that in a crisis situation is unable to feed either the people or even its own army?

      Indeed, the most mega-important and mega-interesting news for Russia right now is problems with products in the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

      Yes, nobody really needs it, the products in the Armed Forces of Ukraine are Ukraine’s business. They may still offer to put a hat around the world to feed the starving VSUshnikov.

      If there is a problem, then you need to write about it. I want to read about everything, and not just the "most important news for Russia."
      By the way, I want to note, here I am in the comments under the articles that did not interest me, I do not write anything because I am simply not interested in the topic.
      And I want to ask - what are you and your brothers in mind doing here? Huh?
      Why are you torturing yourself and reading not the most important news for Russia?

          Yes, it seems that she will remain on her own head. The composers of the Ukrainian anthem clearly knew something. And the first line in it probably sounded earlier and in the future will sound with great regret, they say it would be time, but nothing. request

        The problem is not a virus, the conclusion is not correct. The food of the Armed Forces under Yushchenko was given to com structures headed by the wife of Moscow Oblast U Gritsenko. And with the recent fall of the hryvnia from 25 to 30 commerce, contracts for 20 years require revision, at the rate and new prices, that's all.

          Naturally. The problem lies in Ukraine itself, Ukrainians and Ukrainians as such. A rotten idea, and even in the minds of not the best (morally and intellectually) representatives of humanity, will always lead to a logical result. Namely, dirt, blood, devastation, complete decomposition in everything. What we actually observe first-hand, for almost thirty years, and even the last six, so at an unprecedented pace. These are facts against which, as they say, you can’t argue. By the way, it concerns the rest, such as "fraternal" republics.

    Armed forces of Ukraine have a new problem
    So they have one problem superimposed on another and so every day. Tomorrow you can write without reading anything “a new problem has arisen in the Armed Forces of Ukraine” and you won’t be mistaken. As people say - not diarrhea, so scrofula. But what dances before the NATO or a walk on the occasion of the next IMF loan.

      Something like that was in the 90s in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation or forgotten? I’m not ... the joke in my time was about three meals a day on Monday, Wednesday and Friday ... or lunch for a Russian warrior of those years: the first dish is water with cabbage, the second dish is cabbage without water and the third is water without cabbage ...
      Now the same problems have come to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, with which we have been ill ... in due time ...

        Not quite right. Ukraine was pregnant for a long time, and six years ago, on Independence Square, it gave birth to another miscarriage, under the name "Ukrainian Nazism". The child is stupid, ugly, without brains, with hands from one place, but terribly voracious. So it absorbs the once blooming edge from the inside. So Ukraine, and so, Tryndets. I feel sorry for the normal people.

      cool, some had half a hectare of kitchen gardens in Ukraine, and the dachas were richer at the councils. In Russia, 6 hundred parts was the maximum. And so I saw four hundred parts.
      Yes, they worked with motor milling machines, in the model designer and electric milling machines were offered, condors and 3 phasers from 2. to 3 kW. Damn only in Russia was digging by hand, although for some a tractor went to the site for half a liter.
      damn with advice on richer lived.

        Not "with advice" but with "cursed accupants")
        At mother, at home - in the Nikolaev area, as I arrive, so every year minus one enterprise or collective farm. And in such a way, starting with the first year of college. Of the 24 factories, and heaps of collective farms, there is one train station from which they go to Moscow to earn money and a bunch of law enforcement throughout the city (yellow-block). Only ruins remained from the district hospital and schools. But somehow they survive. Although, in 1992, even there, everyone jumped with happiness that they had become “non-independent” and would no longer feed “lazy and drunk Russia” I saw it with my own eyes and heard it with my own ears. And now, their cries that they want back are not interesting to me. The betrayer will one day betray no one. God be their judge ..
