- says the press center of the round table.
The general noted that the absence of bullying and the decrease in military crimes, in turn, influenced the quality of the draft and the desire of young people to do military service.
Colonel-General Sergei Kuralenko, head of the main military police department of the Ministry of Defense, said that the main role in establishing the statutory order in military units was played by the military police, the military-political administration of the Ministry of Defense, as well as the command of the units.
