Territorial defense troops cost Ukraine 10 times cheaper than regular troops

74

According to the Minister of Defense of Ukraine Andriy Taran, Kiev must create a full-fledged and effective territorial defense. He believes that in conditions when the country does not have enough strength to resist the largest army on the continent (meaning Russian), which, according to him, has already invaded Ukrainian soil, this is the only way out.


This was reported by the press service of the defense department of Ukraine.

The territorial defense system in Ukraine should get a second wind.

- said the minister during his speech dedicated to the celebration of the Day of Territorial Defense.

Taran believes that Ukrainians should be guided by the old folk saying “My house is on the edge - I meet the enemy first”. He also stated the need to draw conclusions from the events of the outbreak of the war in Donbass, which he called “the armed aggression of the Russian
Federation ".

The minister noted that the territorial principle of recruiting units is based on a good knowledge of the territory that must be protected from the enemy, and the strong interest of local residents in protecting their native land. The application of this principle, according to Taran, can reduce time and money, because the locations of the units and the location of training centers are located near the places of residence of the fighters.

The head of the Ukrainian defense department referred to foreign experience in saving money. In particular, he noted that the maintenance of territorial defense units in the United States is 6 times cheaper than the maintenance of regular troops, while in Germany there is a tenfold difference.

This year, the Day of Territorial Defense in Ukraine is celebrated for the first time. It will be celebrated annually on October 4th.

            It was already, in 2014 - 15 years. These gangs became a haven for drunks, drug addicts and other declassed elements. When they wanted to transfer the terrorist band from Zaporozhye to Melitopol, they thought that they were being sent to the ATO. They went to the Regional State Administration with a protest action, accusing unknown people of attempting to raider their PPD))))

    The idea of ​​TPO, of course, is not new, but to be honest, according to the experience of the experiment on its organization in the Russian Federation, it is not particularly feasible in our realities.
    And, perhaps, it is simply underestimated for now and therefore we are not particularly trying not to develop it.
    But in the realities of Ukraine, either everything will simply remain at the "wishlist" stage, or their punitive battalions will be portrayed in the form of SRW.

      In the realities of Ukraine, with the reduction of the state budget itself and as a consequence of everything that is financed from the budget, this is a way to hang additional expenses on the region at the expense of the local population.
      The trend has long been traced in this direction. The APU began to cut back even before 2014, then "benefactors" from the US and the EU came and began to cut medicine and other items of expenditure, and from the latter they announced the termination of the payment of pensions in Ukraine after 15 years.
      So this is just another "swallow" for the pots-heads, on which they will hang the payment of all "pleasures" instead of the state.

    Once upon a time, in Soviet times, recruits were even deliberately sent away from their homes. This is not to encourage the so-called parochialism. Like, an ordinary person will not protect someone else except the inhabitants of his village, or there, the regional center if he serves too close. Enemies will drive away and stop. Will return home.

      I heard about this theory, but the reason was in the version that I heard, another. So that a conscript from, for example, central Russia could taste taiga, steppe, mountains or desert. So that, in the event of war, the climate in the area of ​​hostilities is not a surprise to the soldier.

      I do not know how your or my explanation takes place, only of all my friends and acquaintances, the closest place of service was at my school friend (dad is the big chief of the quartermaster service) - 400 kilometers from home. I was sent from the Volga, where I was born and raised, to Central Asia - over 3500 miles. Most of the acquaintances served ~ 1000-2500 kilometers from home.

The application of this principle, according to Taran, can reduce time and money, because the location of units and the location of the training centers is close to where the fighters live. "
    The thought is probably sound in general. Although, what's new? So earlier and served mainly.
    Good knowledge of the territory ... The question is very controversial.

We are talking about protection, private gardens, chicken coops, pigsties, etc. That is, directly, for which the Ukrainians will stand, to death. And you think, too large-scale - "Feodossiya, Crimea .." Our former brothers, everything is much simpler and more practical.)

    Taran believes that Ukrainians should be guided by an old folk saying "My hut is on the edge - I meet the enemy first"

    What a dirty desecration of popular wisdom .. Not everything sounded, not at all so

    What's the point of "territorial defense", another "feeding trough" for Svidomo "patriots" at the expense of Ukrainian workers ??! winked
    If the very top is rotten because of the "cookies" (the ability to rob their fellow citizens with impunity and store stolen goods in the bins of the Zakordon hucksters) who handed over the former Ukrainian SSR under American occupation in bulk, then no "territorial defense" will help to fight the real enemy-rat-ratting "hats" (domestic ) thief "! negative
    Look, how the crafty "Maidan minister" altered "the old saying (only this" old man "is not even 100 years old ?!)", to the anecdote about the "house on the edge" added the just invented by the Goebbelsukhs - "I meet the enemy first" ?! wassat
    So already in 1991 we met on our necks these "wide" enemies of the Ukrainian multinational population - "Ukrainian" throat-grabbing-kleptoligarchs "w / Bandera", with their iodine-deficient lackeys - "French" farmers Natsik, they seized all "nezalezhna" "thanks" to Comrade Stalin for this well-polished Russophobic "privarochek" to the international Ukrainian SSR! fool ), only Crimea miraculously leaked, but part of Donbass is still resisting!

    For a Ukrainian, there is one principle: my hut is on the edge, everyone except me is not interesting, the main thing in case of a person is to surrender or run away faster.

    the country does not have enough strength to resist the largest army on the continent (meaning Russian)

    See fig ... But what about the statement of their former commander-in-chief that "the most powerful army on the continent is the Ukrainian one"?

Duc Yong is the former and since he left, then "the most powerful army of the continent is Ukrainian" also left .... probably into the forests .. well, presumably ... pushing the Carpathian timber westward between floods

    There was a territorial army in the USSR in the 20s and early 30s. In the 20s, there were special forces CHON units. But it looked like this: "We need to work, the rifle is nearby." They were lifted up the trevol when attacked by bands of deserters, White Guards, Makhnovists ... That is, usually these people worked in factories, factory fields. The soldiers of the territorial army were called up for 3-4 months a year, so as not to lose their military skills. But that was a DIFFERENT country, and most people then believed in the authorities. In Ukraine, such a number will not work. And the first of the rulers to understand this was Ukrogeneral Moskal, who worked in Crimea as a representative of the President of Ukraine, as the governor of Lugansk and then Transcarpathian regions. He strongly opposed this idea. He said that the Ukrainian society is sharply divided, angry and under minimal conditions people are able to break off the brakes and use weapons. I recommend reading the article "Maidan went to war against Russia" - Svidomitka was rebuffed in the Rivne minibus "So everything is not lost. then Shmygal said that in 15 years Ukraine will not be able to pay pensions. And now let's imagine that the people have weapons in their hands ...

      Well, you don’t need to hand out weapons! Form, organizational structure, army dry hack on weekends. On weekdays, work in civilian life. Weapons are distributed only during exercises or during mobilization. It is clear that to recruit only the lowest paid - so that the calls for fees are not compensated for expensively.

      Alternatively, Commanders from a platoon and above are full-fledged personnel responsible for the safety and issuance of weapons. The structure is different, the compartments are larger in terms of the number of seats in the back of the KrAZ.


      Alternatively, arm the rank and file with semi-automatic rifles (don't joke about Mosin!), Designed as a personal civilian weapon (under personal responsibility). Then only machine guns and grenade launchers are under protection, and this is already easier.

      The territories in the USSR in the 30s were just from lack of money: an ordinary Red Army soldier cost the state six times more than the territory.
      The flip side was the near-zero combat capability of the terrorist divisions: according to the results of the training in 1936, it was established that the "satisfactory" rating for the terrorist division could only be obtained after 3 months of training, which is approximately early in the time of the formation of a new division. Moreover, the problem was not only with the assigned, but also with the permanent composition: the command personnel between gatherings degraded so much that the chief of staff of a regiment of one of the terrorist divisions during the check could not set a task for the battalion.

    And the fighters of this territorial defense - are they military personnel or reservists? Do they receive a salary? Are they busy with duty all the time, or do they have a primary, peaceful place of work?

    So, if they do not issue weapons, it is completely quiet and safe. It is inexpensive, it maintains a formal number.

    "... the maintenance of territorial defense units is 6 times cheaper in the United States than the maintenance of regular troops, and in Germany there is a tenfold difference." Yeah, and near-zero combat effectiveness.

    The head of the Ukrainian defense department referred to foreign experience in saving money.
    Yes, the economy in the former Ukraine now takes second place after spitting in the direction of Russia. The IMF refused to give the money, Western pushers refused loans, the maturity of debts is on the tip of the nose, it is becoming more difficult to pay pensions and salaries to public sector employees, the industry is partially destroyed, partially sold out. Here is even "Hurray-patriot" by all the independent Pan Shmygal painted a sad picture:

        I don't pay attention. They express their attitude to fasting, and God is with them. Reposts are interesting, not the pros and cons.

    You go the right way, comrades! Only "territorial defense"! No other way. Each village is a self-defense detachment. Gardens and pigsties, to guard. Then, for sure, they will take to NATU.)
