"Let's focus on preventing provocations by pro-Russian militants": a new MTR commander appointed in Ukraine

33

It became known that the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has appointed a new commander of the MTR (Special Operations Forces) of the country's armed forces. Major General Grigory Galagan became him. The appointment is reflected in Presidential Decree 358/2020. Galagan took up the post instead of Lieutenant General Ilya Lunev, whom Zelensky relieved of his duties as the commander of the MTR of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Lunev has been in this position since 2016.


According to the President of Ukraine, such a rearrangement was necessary due to the fact that the ceasefire regime is generally observed in Donbass, and therefore the setting of tasks itself requires changes.

Who is Grigory Galagan?


It is known about him that he served in Crimea for about 12 years, when the peninsula was part of Ukraine. After that, a deputy commander of the special forces of the Center for Special Operations "A" ("Alpha") was appointed in the zone of the so-called "ATO". After a while, he ended up in the government of Ukraine as the first deputy minister for veterans affairs. Galagan worked in the government until September last year.

Galagan, during a meeting with Zelensky, said that as commander of the MTR "he will focus on activities to prevent provocations by pro-Russian militants in Donbas."

General of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Galagan:

We will also continue to work on the development of the marine and aviation components of the MTR, we will take preventive measures to prevent provocations by pro-Russian militants.

    The sum does not change from a change in the places of the terms. And in the aggregate, the continuation of the war, the destruction of infrastructure and civilians.
    "Will focus on activities to prevent provocations by pro-Russian militants in the Donbas."

      One punisher, the president "peacemaker" replaced with another punisher. Three rows of order blocks, with the general whose army did not wage any wars except for punitive actions. Even in the 3rd Reich, the punishers were not so awarded.

          Here they don't have these on their backs, but they don't give so many "tsatseks" in the square. But the punishers are not forgotten, the faithful dog is entitled to a medal, as in the exhibition. And who gave medals to the punishers? Petka-gunpowder, which has nothing to do with Oukraine, and Vavan-zyoma.

          People ask "This is not a fake ???" No guys, this is not a fake, this is oukraina.

            Here they love stars, titles, medals. Typical farm psychology. Modern "Ellochka_Lyudoedka and Fima Sobak" Even the stars of the major general cannot be distinguished from the marshal's. I am generally silent about the number of medals ...

              I would not be so categorical. There are Chekists there who have not hidden themselves. Defectors testify to this.

    It is necessary to lay out the full version of Ze's words when appointing Galagan, this is important for understanding his "desire" to end the war in Donbass
    "There will be more provocations from pro-Russian militants, therefore both the command and the personnel of the MTR should work more to prevent them and prevent them. It is also necessary to introduce more aggressive measures to counter the challenges that arise - to adequately respond to provocative actions from the enemy."
    Here is such a peacemaker, comedian Ze!

    The MTR commanders in Donbass need to appoint either a narcologist or a psychiatrist, or better, both in one person, and introduce a troika tribunal, which would promptly resolve issues of ceasefire violations and total theft of weapons and ammunition.

      Call, angels have not been called to the service yet. In general, it sounds nice - "pro-Russian militants". Already admits that there are no Russian militants there!

    Congratulations to RSkomorokhov - the SU regiment returned to Baltimore.
    Roman worried about the flyers - they sit in Buturlinovka without an airfield (and pilots). so Shoigu remembered them.
    now, apparently, they will reconstruct Buturlinovka. Again everything is bad slowly

      Did Taburetkin optimize Buturlinovka? He completely eliminated Shatalovo (48th OGRAP), but he was smart enough and under Shoigu the regiment was restored, the guys constantly fly.

    A strange appointment. In the sense that it is, at least, incomprehensible to appoint a commander who has been working for a long time in the ministry of Vytirans and has not been in control of the situation on the front of the civil war for several years. Although, perhaps, as a super loyalist, he is being pulled into the post of defense minister, and for this, a record in a personal file about participation in punitive operations that is in great demand now in Ukraine is needed.

      As for me, it's just great. The rear rats are afraid of even a loud bunch, which means he will not want to fight. If he is an "authority" among the gangsters-vytyrans, then perhaps he will pacify this rabble. These are my assumptions, I do not insist on anything.

    What is known? In my opinion, we must start from where he studied, where he served, not only in recent years, but also from his lieutenant years, it would be very interesting to find out with whom he studied and served, including from among the Russian high-ranking military personnel, if any. remained.

    And why not immediately into space, to the moon, Mars ... laughing ? From there it is easier to control and repel the uninterrupted attacks of an unknown number of divisions, corps, etc. Ahressor.

    Ze painstakingly portrays a stormy activity. However, in these matters he is not allowed to pry. His hyperbolic statements point to this matter. An example of such a statement is included in the title of the publication.

    A strange appointment. From "for veterans" - to commanders. Actually, in decent (sane) countries they do the opposite - from commanders to various committees "for veterans' affairs." Proceeding from the Ukrainian logic, the new commander will call “under the banner” of all his former “sponsored” veterans. It will make a funny army ..

            It's hard for YOU to argue. I agree. I think that in the future, personnel problems are also possible. Remember the story with the passage of graduates on Gelendvagens .. They came to serve with a dream of expensive cars? Of course, having material wealth is normal, but you cannot put them at the head of everything.
