In Kiev, put the Armed Forces of Ukraine in fourth place "among the armies of NATO countries"

80

In Ukraine, they continue to dream of joining NATO and are already comparing the Ukrainian army with other armies of the alliance states. As stated in Kiev, the Armed Forces of Ukraine is one of the strongest armies not only in Europe, but also in the world.

The visit to Ukraine of the head of the Pentagon Lloyd Austin gave new strength to the supporters of the country's accession to NATO, while Ukrainian "experts" became more active, who, on various television shows and the press, began to justify the "necessity" of the country's joining the military bloc.



One of these "experts" was a freelance adviser to the head of the office of the President of Ukraine, Oleksiy Arestovich, who said that Ukraine is fully ready to join the alliance and is welcomed there with almost open arms. Justifying his assertion, Arestovich emphasized that the alliance would only benefit from Ukraine's entry into NATO, since it would "add power to it." In his opinion, the Ukrainian army will be the fourth in strength in NATO, second only to the armies of the United States, Turkey and France. Whence such conclusions, the "expert" did not explain.

What you need to understand: we are not going to NATO as supplicants with an outstretched hand, we will add tremendous strength. Because, apart from the United States, Turkey and France, we are the fourth largest force in terms of military power (...)

- he said on the air of the Nash TV channel, adding that Ukraine's joining NATO will give the alliance "new opportunities" and will significantly strengthen it.

Note that this is not the first statement by Kiev politicians and experts about the strength of the Ukrainian army. Earlier it was stated that the Ukrainian Armed Forces is one of the strongest armies in Europe and is in the top ten. But this is the first time that the Ukrainian Armed Forces is the fourth most powerful army in NATO. How it really is is not important, the most important thing is to state it.

        So they are already given nothing. They decided to act from a position of strength and demand from weaker Britain to write off the ships with their subsequent transfer "supposedly".

        Yeah, in the complete absence of arms purchases in the last 30 years ... How do they assess the Armed Forces, if the Air Force exists only on paper, pilots have a flight time of 15-20 hours, anti-aircraft missiles are "older" than 30 years with a shelf life of 10-15? OTRK too. There is no fleet ... Nuclear Britain turns out to be no match for them ...

      For three years, the rating of the ten most powerful armies in the world (from 5 ... to 10th place) has changed, Brazil has become in 7th place, and Pakistan is in 10th. That is, Turkey and Germany share 11/12 places.
      Aristovich in an interview with the Nash TV channel said about the land component of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
      According to his forecasts, Ukraine will be admitted to NATO from 2025 to 2035.
      And IMMEDIATELY the republics of the LDNR will enter Ukraine.
      In other words, NATO should return the region to Ukraine. Does the Alliance need it?

        No. He hopes that in Germany and England they will not read his nonsense, or, in any case, they will not take his words to heart. laughing ... Caramel speaks to an internal audience. And mainly for the one who is in power today. He wants to show his dedication to his current leadership with all his might, so that he can turn from a “freelance” to a “full-time” advisor and take a more highly paid job. The only trouble is that the forecasts given by him earlier did not come true, and as a political scientist, he cannot interest himself in any way in any authority capable of paying for these forecasts. It's another matter that here on VO we mention him too often, which gives him optimistic hopes for some progress in the positive rating - "if they mention it, then they listen ...".

          Probably not so. They are offended at the Germans that those SP1-2 do not want to close in any way. And that's why France, not England ... Here it is most likely: the Angles have already promised them ships, i.e. from them already everything that you can get. The Franks, left without a submarine contract for Australia, are in sorrow. We need to console them, and suddenly Macron will promise them something for this, so that he can support his shipyards.

There, in reality, of course, everything was exactly the opposite - he predicted that Russia does not need Crimea, since the population of Crimea is sharply opposed to the Russians, and he himself lived in a gang like the PS.
