Military Review

In the Air Force of Ukraine, preparations began for a joint Ukrainian-Danish operation “Northern Falcon-2014”


As reported in the Air Force Command, the selection of flight and technical personnel has already been carried out, a number of work has been carried out regarding training aviation technicians. In the near future, as part of the preparations for the mission, transport crews will begin scheduled flights of crews. Their program, in particular, provides for takeoff and landing from a short strip, since the length of the polar airfield at the Nord station is limited to 1600 meters.

- This is the sixth operation of Ukrainian transport workers in the sky over Greenland. It will begin roughly on March 17 and will last until April 10. During this time, it is planned that Ukrainian military pilots from the Thule airbase at the military transport aircraft Il-76 from the Thule airbase will deliver almost half a million liters of fuel and over 200 tons of different cargo to the Arctic station, - said Col. Alexander, deputy head of aviation of the Air Force Command of Ukraine. Kulibaba

It is worth noting that at the end of February the military representatives of the Kingdom of Denmark will visit the transport brigade of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Melitopol. They will not only familiarize themselves with the training of Ukrainian pilots and ground personnel who will be involved in Operation Northern Falcon-2014, but also inform the Ukrainian military about the characteristics of the mission, work and behavior in the conditions of the Far North.

    But shaw, it’s almost NADO, it’s necessary to at least somehow practice, but it’s better to collect all the Bandera people and send them to Greenland for permanent residence with their wives and parents with all transport planes.

      By title and content of the topic.
      Extremely negative. I can object, they say an exchange of experience. Since when can the Danes learn from?! I understand the joint maneuvers with Russia or with other countries of the community but I refuse to understand such operations. Infe minus.

        Why minus? When Russia conducts exercises with NATO countries, it’s a plus, an exchange of experience, and as soon as it comes to other countries of the former USSR, it’s a minus and a betrayal .. It’s time to decide if this is a betrayal, then you must blame your own people for this as well.

      It is a miracle that the Ukrainian army, after so many years of disregard for it, has generally retained its "air forces", in which something else is flying.

    "Miracles on a farm near Dikanka". The country is on the verge of collapse, on the horizon of the dismantling of the east and west, and the air forces of Ukraine are helping the Danes. It would be better if they dropped a couple of mouths of paratroopers on the Maidan, dispersed a swarm of parasites to the devil.

    Transport workers in the Ukrainian Air Force are traditionally strong. It’s good that they don’t stand idle. They fly, they study ...

    What is the leadership of Ukraine thinking ?, somehow they were sprinkled with dust. m until mid-March would survive. And in general, what is such interest in Ukraine in the Arctic that they have already forgotten about themselves?

    The reason is simple, if the Danish side takes most of the expenses, then why not fly? We are not so rich that we refuse to pull our pilots behind someone else’s brush.

    When rocket exercises begin in Ukraine, in Russia even the birds do not fly and all insults towards Ukraine abruptly stop .... It is a pity that they destroyed the 1st shock army ...

      What are the mercenaries? You stop smoking this grass.
      Practice for military pilots has never been superfluous, especially if foreign citizens pay well for it.

    Which army? There is no army in Ukraine, one name. Well, as in the army ... The fact that after the "real colonel" Anatoly Gritsenko, who changed his footcloths for socks, was left of her. And the current minister went to Pavel Lebedev. Tanks working only for parades left a couple of pieces. And the minister, by the way, has already stated that the armed forces will not interfere in the confrontation between the current government and the opposition. Not even noticing the contradictions in his statement. He said that in accordance with the Constitution of Ukraine, the army is responsible for ensuring the "sovereignty and territorial integrity" of the country, but the armed forces "cannot be used by anyone to limit the rights and freedoms of citizens." What is happening in Ukraine now? But, apparently, what country, such is her army ...
    Well, about the participation of the ZSU in peacekeeping operations, where, by definition, the best military personnel are selected:
    Yugoslavia, Russian volunteer:
    Earlier it was said about the Ukrainian contingent, which broke all corruption records, that the trident of the Ukrainian emblem is the initial "Ш" in the word "schwerts" (in Serbian - a merchant). Before leaving Gorazde, only two SKS carbines remained for the entire Ukrainian company (one of them was serviceable). All other weapons, including armored personnel carriers, were given (sold) to Serbs and Muslims.

    “... The battle ended without ours. The Poles lost two killed and two more wounded. Got to the local Arabs, who fell under the gap of a land mine. When ours passed through this place, they saw how the bodies of the dead were loaded onto cars. Following our Poles showed the middle finger. With this gesture in Babylon our convoys met for a long time. ”

    But what infuriates me in Ukrainians is their arrogance and complete lack of self-esteem. Ours started carrying this Coca-Cola with backpacks and exchanging it at the Arabs' checkpoint for various useful things. Knives, cameras, CD players, some even managed to name themselves DVDs. The exchange rate was such 5 cans - 1 dollar. DVD in Iraq cost 70 bucks. So consider how many walkers you had to make in order to trade it.

    In practice, it looked like this: a guy enters the dining room with a backpack behind him (empty) and leaves already with a full one. And this “Change” has become a mass epidemic. Despite the fact that it’s unpleasant for me to say this, I’ll give you statistics. In my, for example, platoon from 17, only three people did NOT do this. Even many of those whom I considered and continue to consider my friends, unfortunately, sinned this. The rest had the same picture.
    For the Americans opened a real hunt. Well, I don’t understand: will we ever learn to respect ourselves? Okay, in front of your own people, where everything is in one shit, but they sent you to another country, dressed, shod, fed well, they pay good salaries, watch yourself, do not disgrace in front of other nations. Well no, eyes burn and come on, let's change.

    It reminded me of Arab children who ran after our APCs and shouted: "Mister give me pepsy, give me kola." It is clear that in most cases the Americans gave things worthwhile: what to take from us beggars, but their vicious phrases, which they threw in a low voice to each other against the Ukrainians, was unpleasant.

      Dear Roman 1977, why are you looking only for the negative side?
      Could, for the sake of justice, recall the Ukrainian helicopter pilots in Sudan, who transported refugees under fire, despite the loss and damage of helicopters?
      Ukrainian miners removed thousands of mines? Etc.

      Quote: Novel 1977
      two SKS carbines (one of them is serviceable)

      Can you show photos of Ukrainian peacekeepers from the SCS? For the SCS use the EXCLUSIVELY presidential regiment! There were problems with the armor plates in the 90s, they were not enough, so the new rotations received the old worn ones but it was in the 90s.
      Of all the above, written by a typical Iraqi veteran, I’ll say the following: I talked with the guy who served there as the first rotation in 2003 (for persuasiveness showed the NATO award which they were awarded there all) so that from all the above, he confirmed only that they were given Iraqi aging AKs and one horn for the duration of the march from Kuwait to the main base. There they were already given their AKs. The only thing that says they didn’t allow us to shoot trunks normally, we had to shoot at the floor in combat conditions.

      Write utter nonsense. In Ukraine, at least soldiers from illnesses do not die in hospitals. You see a mote in a foreign army, in your logs (even the whole forest) you do not notice.
