Zelensky signed a decree on increasing the size of the Ukrainian army

68

Kiev is increasing the size of the Ukrainian army, the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky signed a corresponding decree today. As the Ukrainian leader himself stated, this has nothing to do with the threat of a "Russian invasion."


Zelensky's new decree is aimed at strengthening the country's defense capability and provides, in addition to increasing the size of the army, expanding the housing construction program for the military, as well as increasing the wages of military personnel. The Ukrainian president spoke about all this while speaking in the Verkhovna Rada.

According to the decree, the size of the Ukrainian army will increase by 100 people, but not all at once, but over three years. During this period, it is also planned to increase the service life of contract soldiers and deploy 20 additional brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. To date, the number of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is 261 thousand military personnel (from open sources). At the same time, it is planned to completely cancel the urgent conscription and switch to recruiting a "professional army" on a contract basis. Instead of military service, it is proposed to introduce a system of "intensive military training", which will prepare a mobilization reserve for the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

With regard to the salaries of the military, it is planned to raise them from 2023 for all categories of the military without exception, setting a lower level not lower than three minimum wages. The truth will be raised only by those who conclude long-term contracts. So far, the new terms of contracts have not been disclosed, but earlier the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine offered to sign a contract for at least three years, and preferably five or ten at once.

Zelensky stressed that the decree was issued in a planned manner, and not because "war is coming soon."

      In-in .. And does the pan have pennies for such an army? Well, he’s not only getting a salary with grub - he still needs to be armed with something, but supported .. Who, interestingly, did he try to beg for loot this time? Or do they want in the best traditions of the Sich - everyone comes for his own coat, horse, armor and weapons?

        But there is interesting information about pennies. Will the UK provide guarantees of financial stability?
        . President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky announced the creation of a new format of cooperation with the UK and Poland. It is reported by TASS.

        “We are creating a new format of political cooperation in Europe between Ukraine, Britain and Poland, and we are providing financial stability guarantees for our state,” he said. Zelensky added that although diplomatic support for Ukraine is now at its highest level since 2014, it still relies only on itself.

        It is noted that officially the new alliance can be fixed on February 1 in the presence of British and Polish Prime Ministers Boris Johnson and Mateusz Morawiecki. At the same time, the first one the day before was in contact with the head of the country's Foreign Ministry, Liz Truss, who was infected with the coronavirus, and will go to Ukraine only if the test for COVID-19 is negative.

        Earlier, Gazeta.Ru reported the words of the deputy of the Rada from European Solidarity Oleksiy Goncharenko that the leaders of Ukraine, Great Britain and Poland would sign a declaration on a new union.

            Well, assuming that economically Ukraine is a bankrupt country, then indeed in the Ukrainian labor market Kiev had to call the people only in the Ukrainian army. There, at least financing and lending to Ukraine comes from abroad.
            And everything else belongs to Zelensky under the patronage of the Evil West!

        To date, the number of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is 261 thousand military personnel (from open sources).
        . Actually, it's kind of bullshit. In peacetime, no budget can support an army of 5% of the population. And here it’s really bad with the head - either with Zelya, or with those who wrote this to him. Have they decided? In wartime, the figure is different, but not for very long ... or teeth on the shelf.

            And with a new decree, Zelensky signed a decree that in a couple of years there will be no conscripts in Ukraine, the entire army will be only from contract soldiers. As they already say in Ukraine, "Zelensky steps on the rake of Yanukovych."

    As the Ukrainian leader himself stated, this has nothing to do with the threat of a "Russian invasion."

    And everyone believed him? Moreover, an increase of 100 people, and this is in a country living on loans, plus housing and an increase in wages. I know that all clowns lie, but this is no longer a lie, but "nonsense". And that the army will be increased, this is not a whim of Zelensky, but an indication of the overlord.

      A maximum increase of 5.000 people - the Germans donated 5 thousand helmets.
      But by the way today:
      The European Commission (EC) approved the allocation of a macro-financial assistance program to Ukraine in the amount of 1,2 billion euros, the money will be transferred to Kiev in two tranches of 600 million euros, said EC President Ursula von der Leyen.

          Poland and Ukraine have agreed to build a gas pipeline to increase the volume of gas supplied to the east, said Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.

          Morawiecki said after meeting with Ukrainian counterpart Denis Shmyhal in Kiev that "we talked about expanding the capacity from west to east, building a gas pipeline that could transfer large volumes of gas in the near future," RIA Novosti reports.

    In short, it is clear that all this hype around Donbass today is just an excuse to put pressure on Moscow to keep quiet while the US and Co. will create and arm an invading army in Ukraine! The more proxies the United States gather around our borders, the easier it will be for them to unleash a conflict with us. Sanctions and other restrictions are needed only to force us out of certain markets, play off the elites ("Westerners" and "Slavophiles"), thereby plunging the country into a series of crises, undermining the economy once again.

    I don’t understand the ridicule of the local commentators over this news, as if on command the same type of comms, moreover, hats, one could laugh at the Armed Forces of Ukraine in 2014, but not now. The age-old dream of the West came true, they convinced one part of the Russians to kill others when they themselves sit across the ocean and laugh at it. Do you think that the US and England will not finance Ukraine? They have nowhere to rush, they will not let Ukraine break up, they will arm and train, hatred of Russia will increase and one day a terrible meat grinder will begin. And it is not necessary for Ukraine to win, they understand this very well, the main goal is for more Russians to kill each other and so that this does not stop. And everything goes to this, and you continue to laugh here. The Kremlin will also sit and express concerns, laying pipes to the left and right, pumping resources from the country while the people are sleeping, because all the loot over 30 years is not stored in Sberbank by the "elite".

      The age-old dream of the West came true, they convinced one part of the Russians to kill others

      ..... Ukrainians are Russians who betrayed Russians ...

    The truth will be raised only by those who conclude long-term contracts.

    Well, I think their owners will help the Ukronazis with pennies for the army against Russia. More recently, the Selyuks and even the old RPGs didn’t really have it, but now there are even more modern ATGMs of the 3rd generation than in Russia. And I note all this splendor they got for nothing, and yet all this costs just gigantic money. So, for what, for what, but for opposing us, Negro gays for skakuas will not spare any money.

    If we seriously try to understand why they need and where they need another 100 troops, then this decision will be completely clear. Judging from previous articles on the forum, in Ukraine the main problem is not so much the lack of modern weapons and equipment, but rather the lack of qualified personnel, which cannot be obtained much due to the majority of conscripts. Those who came, picked their noses for a year and went in all directions. Now they are thinking, as I understand it, on the new ships that the Turks and the British are building for them, soon with the Air Force I will think the same thing as with the ships and you can’t put conscripts there, send every year to the USA or Britain for half a year of training "green" that if they would then come for half a year to serve and go home, this is economically unacceptable and stupid. So they want to keep their land army in the quantities that they have now, and for new ships, crews, logistics, maintenance personnel at the bases, the same thing with the Air Force and other branches of the military, where new weapons will go in large quantities, these 000 will go there 100. At the very least, it would be logical, I don’t see any reason for them to further expand the land army, which is already not small on the scale of Europe. Especially considering that they are stirring up something else with territorial formations, then there is no point in where there are so many in the ground army. So I think the comrades of the sharavarniks decided, with the help of their curators, to really deal with the fleet and will soon change the Air Force. It is necessary not to smile here, but to understand this and prepare.

    The clown in the circus will not offend his own. It's a pity for the flawed Jew, he would have sat himself, cracked matzah in the 95th quarter.

    According to the decree, the number of the Ukrainian army will increase by 100 thousand people

    To date, the number of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is 261 thousand military personnel (from open sources).

    Liddell Garth read (probably a scoundrel, an empirialist is lying) that a peacetime army cannot exceed 1% of the country's population, otherwise the country's economy will "fall" ...
    Ukraine seems to want to combine 2 in 1, and destroy the economy and reduce the population ... through "repelling aggression" ...
    I think the "senior comrades" in Ukraine did not calculate that, unlike Kazakhstan, they might not have time to fly out of Boryspil ....

    If you give up vodka and have a bite to eat with salo, the army of Ukraine can at least double in size. Now I have almost two monitors, and there was one - all the Armenians are to blame, or rather their cognac. )
