Swords and spears for master sergeants: new emblems in the Ukrainian army

70

The Ukrainian army continues to experiment with new emblems and insignia. The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine decided to introduce changes from September 1, 2020.


As you know, in recent years, the Ukrainian armed forces have changed their military ranks. At first, it was proposed to return the traditions of Ukrainian political formations during the Civil War, but then the Armed Forces of Ukraine began to adapt to NATO standards.

For example, in navy introduced the rank of Commodore, as in the naval forces of the English-speaking countries, in the army they renamed the Major General to Brigadier General, and Colonel General to Lieutenant General. From October 1, 2020, warrant officers and warrant officers should disappear in the Armed Forces of Ukraine - they will be replaced by staff sergeants, master sergeants and chief master sergeants.

As for the symbolism, here the Ukrainian military department showed a much greater flight of imagination, recalling the traditions of Petliura's formations. One of the main tasks of the begun reform of troop symbols is to eliminate the last elements of similarity with the symbols of the Russian Armed Forces and the Soviet Army.

The cog, as the emblem of belonging to the higher officer corps, will now be worn not on shoulder straps, but on the collar.


Servicemen of the signal troops, specialists in automated control systems and information protection will differ from other servicemen by a stylized image of an electric spark instead of a medallion with the letter "i". The emblem of the electronic warfare units will be a contour shield with a stylized image of lightning superimposed on it.


In the airborne assault units, the collar will wear an emblem in the form of a winged parachute with a fiery sword superimposed on it, and servicemen of the army aviation for the first time in stories modern Ukraine received a separate symbol - the winged spearhead.





Changes have also taken place in the symbols of the marines: the Ukrainian marines will receive a new emblem - the so-called Sagaidachny sword and crossed rifles superimposed on a stylized anchor.


Military medics will now wear the Aesculapian wand entwined with a snake. Such an emblem in 1917-1921. worn by doctors and paramedics of the Ukrainian armed formations.

In addition, employees of the State Special Transport Service of Ukraine received a special emblem - this is the "wheel of Mercury" on a pontoon anchor, which emphasizes the possibility of building crossings for railway transport.

As you can see, the Ukrainian armed forces continue to demonstrate their steady desire to distance themselves as far as possible from any resemblance to the Russian army, be it rank or symbolism. Such actions of the military department, of course, find all-round support from the country's leadership and are stimulated by the United States and NATO. But such perturbations are unlikely to affect the real combat training and the military spirit of the armed forces.

        I would also suggest, instead of swords and spears, horns and hooves. They will more accurately convey the inner essence of the APU.

            It is very small and very old, there was nothing to bomb there.
            And he was in the GDR at one time, which made it easier to shoot, as you know.
            As for Dresden, although it was scrupulously restored, it still feels different. On the other hand, maybe because he knew that everything was actually rebuilt.
            A couple of years ago I happened to be in Würzburg. And that he was bombed very heavily during the war, I found out only when I saw the monument there and climbed to the Internet to look.

        Sergei, a wheel lock for weapons is not cheap, a simple Cossack will rather go with a wick lock or already with a silicon lock, generally available. However, there were carbines with a wheel lock for ordinary cavalrymen from Saxony in particular ...

          Yes, I know, the usual inexpensive of that time was a match wick.
          Nevertheless, silicon locks, expensive for that time, or even more expensive wheel locks were not such a rarity among the Cossacks.
          Perhaps this was due to the fact that their weapons were a kind of fetish, so the situation was not uncommon - a ragged Cossack with a decent weapon.

      I have the only version. This is a reference to the Zaporozhye Cossacks. But why did this only affect the Marines? Maybe there are similar parallels in the emblems of other types of troops? Car - chaise, oxen, for example?

    On October 1, 2020, warrant officers and warrant officers should disappear in the Armed Forces of Ukraine - they will be replaced by staff sergeants, master sergeants and chief master sergeants

Well, they will lie a little about the Petliura people, and they do not steal now, everything that can be stolen before them, and the authorities who hold "Quarter-95" still think that it is possible to steal in Ukraine, but from childhood they remembered the saying "that there is no petliura in army, then a thief ", so they made a master sergeant so that no one would understand what" master "is in Ukrainian, they have not yet invented such a word.

    I am now more worried about the disfigured red star of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation and the St.George Ribbon turned into ugly stripes on armored vehicles, as well as the disappeared regimental (red) banners of units and formations that survived both Yeltsin and Serdyukov, but the current leadership of the Ministry of Defense dealt with them in a moment. I will note the Red Banner of the RF Armed Forces, approved in 2000, has not been canceled. Ukraine is a separate state, as it does not apply to it, and it doesn't matter what symbols they have in the army.

    In order to suppress such inclinations of Ukraine, the very existence of Ukraine, as an independent state, has to end long ago. And independent politicians must be skinned alive and stuffed with manure, and their stuffed animals must be exhibited at the entrances to the city of Kiev. So, the king of Persia Shapur I tore the skin from the Roman emperor Valerian and put up a stuffed animal of Valerian at the gate of Ctesiphon.

    It is clear that this will cause the next US and EU sanctions. At the same time, those of our Russian citizens who are calculating the ruble exchange rate and every cent they saved for their next trip to Turkey are afraid of US and EU sanctions.

    In the short term, the liquidation and annexation of Ukraine are economic problems for Russia, which must be endured, and the impatient must be made to endure.

    In the long term, the liquidation and annexation of Ukraine is a matter of Russia's survival as a great power.
